object not found when trying to run php file

Postby howardarbutus » 20. March 2009 03:06

Dear all:
I get the following error when I tried to run a file in "htdoc" file of xampp.

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.

Error 404


I tried to open the file in internet explorer by "file", "open", and is able to fine the file just fine.
I am a newbie and would appreciate the help.
Thanks in advance.

Use http://localhost/yourphpfile.php as opening a file will not work as the server needs to parse the file.


Also check in the xampp\apache\logs\error.log file for the file not found error and correct if appropriate.

Checked the error log with the following error:

[Thu Mar 19 19:04:28 2009] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] script 'C:/xampp/htdocs/xampp/f.php' not found or unable to stat

I put the f.php file in C:/xampp/htdocs/xampp/ file and the internet explorer found it. Thanks. That solves my problem. Many thanks.

Your welcome.

File f.php in C:\xampp\htdocs folder has an address of http://localhost/f.php
File f.php in C:\xampp\htdocs\xampp folder has an address of http://localhost/xampp/f.php

Hope this helps.

What version of XAMPP?
What version of Windows?
Both omitted.

What do you see when you go to http://localhost in your browser?

You have deleted files in the xampp\htdocs folder?

There should be an index.php and an index.html file and some images.
Also 3 folders xampp, restricted and forbidden.

You can still access the XAMPP Welcome page by going to http://localhost/xampp/ in your browser.

Hello Izzy, I had restored index.htm and index.php on C:\xampp\htdocs. I can run just one of both: the index.htm ; I can't run index.php the error 404 persist.
The dirctory has the refered sub-directories: Forbiden, Restricted, Xampp, some pictures and a new directory added by me (www - following some recomendations I read before).

When i run http://localhost/xamppI saw the ERROR 404 again

Error 404

Look in the C:\xampp\apache\logs\error.log file and see what it says about file not found errors.
