Not getting the htdocs folder

Postby naren » 06. January 2019 13:41


I have MAC AIR, I am installing the xampp. After some research I installed it and Now I have xampp icon on my application. i clicked on it and "Start" it. It's started the xampp.

Now I click on "go to application" then it's redirecting to and I am getting "Welcome to XAMPP for 7.2.11-0 ". That means xampp is installed.

Now I am not getting the htdocs folder in the application. I have only xampp icon and when I click on it then it opens the popup and asking for start

a few months ago I asked a question on stack overflow.
Now xampp is intalled but not getting the htdocs folder.

Would you help me out in this?

You installed the VM version instead of the regular one.
The VM version needs to get mounted to access the htdocs.
There is a FAQ for the XAMPP VM version answering this and many other questions.
But I would recommend to install the regular version instead.
