I’m looking for some help getting the local host function to work on my computer
Configured as noted below, I cannot get a PHP document to execute phpInfo() and have it write to my monitor. I get one of the following when I execute the program from the URLs shown.
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.
Apache/2.4.17 (Win32) OpenSSL/1.0.2d PHP/5.6.14

Fix connection problems There is a button on the webpage at this point that asks if I want to ‘fix’ this problem. Clicking it has not effect.
I am running an HP desktop with Win 7 on it. I have downloaded the XAMPP suite and have it running Apache, MySQL, and Mercury. My computer is running Norton 360 for its virus protection and firewall functions. The Norton firewall supplants the Windows firewall. Turning the virus protection and firewall functions off does not change the response. I have IIS set up on the computer but there is no configuration relative to use of local host, but then I don’t know if one is required.
The executing script is a simple http file as follows:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>PHP Info Screen</title>
My suspicion is that I have a Windows configuration issue (1st) or a Norton conflict (2nd) but I have not been able to find anything that fixes the issue. I’m assuming that the problem is not related to the Apache server setup but that is a risky assumption based only on the fact that I had this problem when playing with ASP files a few months ago.
Any insight into a fix for this problem would be appreciated.
