Help! XAMPP appears to be set up correctly, but...

Postby Abusername » 21. February 2009 10:49

Hi. I installed XAMPP and everything checks out fine (MySQL, PHP, Perl, CGI, and SSI are all "Activated"). But when I try to open http://127.0.0.1/index.html it doesn't take me to the page, but instead forwards me to http://127.0.0.1/xampp/index.php
The index.html in there is my own, so I can't figure out why it doesn't show up.


Also, what are the recommended settings for Dreamweaver when using XAMPP?
In other words, do I need to move my local folder to XAMPP's "htdocs" folder or can I leave my local folder where it is and just change the testing server info?

OMG it was that simple! D'oh!

:mrgreen: THANK YOU! :mrgreen:

Now I just need to figure out how to get it working with Dreamweaver. Because right now I have both the local folder and the testing server set to XAMPP's htdocs folder but when I modify and save one of my pages and then refresh the browser, it doesn't show the change.
(And this time I know it's not a cache issue - cleared it a second time to be sure.)
