Frustrated with a 404 Not Found

Postby msumi » 21. April 2010 17:14

This is probably a firewall issue but I can't seem to figure it out. I'm running 1.7.2a and Joomla!

Successful Test

URL - http://localhost/
Result - It works!

Unsuccessful Test
URL - http://localhost/xampp/
Result - Not Found

The requested URL /xampp/ was not found on this server.

What am I doing wrong ? None of my Joomla! sites or XAMPP client comes up.

Help

Did you put Joomla into htdocs? That's where it should go.

The URL should be http://localhost/joomla

"localhost" defaults to htdocs (which is actually an alias to /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs)

Yes. I have several Joomla! folders in htdocs but xampp files is not/was never in the path. htdocs is simply an alias.....if that matters ?? It (this directory structure) was working several weeks ago. It stopped working about the time I installed Parallels and Win7. My sense is there is a firewall conflict of some sort since I can't even bring up the XAMPP webclient.

If http://localhost results in 'It works' then there is a chance of 99% there is another webserver running, because a XAMPP installation doesn't give that page by default when accessing that page. It's very likely the built-in webserver that came with Mac OS X has been accidently turned on.
Check System Preferences > Share and look if 'Webserver' has been turned on. If so, turn it off. Then start XAMPP.

Thanks MegaChriz......That did it and I learned something today. I figured it was something simple.
