Hi. I am pulling out what little hair I have left trying to figure this out so I could really do with some help.
I know very little about servers, and this is my first time trying to learn PHP and mysql. I have installed XAMPP and as far as I know,
everything is installed properly, and all passwords and security is set. If I put http://localhost/xampp/index.php into Safari nav bar the
welcome page is displayed so I assume PHP is being served. However, I can't get any of the PHP tutorial files I create to work. I either get
Object not found Error 404 or the PHP code is displayed in the browser window. I assume I must be putting my files in the wrong place
and they are not being accessed by the web server. Could someone please tell me where I am going wrong.
I have a folder (my_site) in the htdocs folder in which I have all my files. Should I be placing my files somewhere else?
Any advice would be much appreciated. Please don't get too technical as I may not understand.
