What did you type in your browsers address bar and where is the file saved?

Jumping in as I have the same question.
Saved the frontpage.html file in /opt/lampp/web and typed http://localhost/opt/lampp/web/frontpage.html into the browser.
The error I get is:
Object not found!

The requested URL was not found on this server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
Error 404
localhost
Apache/2.4.3 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.1c PHP/5.4.7

Help!

Probably because you should be putting the files under 'htdocs', unless you created an Alias or changed the DocumentRoot in httpd.conf

Good Luck
:)

I double-checked the httpd.conf file, and /opt/lampp/htdocs is the DocumentRoot. I moved the files I'm trying to run over to that directory as well. Still no luck.
Thanks for your help,
Ruth

A. what are the exact filenames and URL's you are using?

B: Did you change the ownership of the files to nobody:root? (as root via su or sudo)
chown -R nobody:root /opt/lampp/htdocs/your_folder_name

C: Are you still getting a 404 after you change the ownership?

:shock:

A "DocumentRoot" means, that this directory on your local PC is the Root Directory / from the view of your Apache server. That means, all documents in /opt/xampp/htdocs/ are mapped to the root of Apache, what results in http://localhost/ (and nothing more!).

If you have a file in your DocumentRoot like test.html, the full path on your local PC is /opt/lampp/htdocs/test.html - but from the view of Apache it is http://localhost/test.html

Finally, if you enter http://localhost/opt/lampp/htdocs/test.html, this yields to the local path /opt/lampp/htdocs/opt/lampp/htdocs/test.html - what is nonsense as you easily can see. That is the idea of having a DocumentRoot, that you do not have to enter the full local path, as the root already yields to /opt/lampp/htdocs
