Can't access htdocs

Postby Steve542 » 11. April 2013 19:37

Hi,
I am having trouble getting things to work on my Win 7 64-bit system. (MS C++ installed). I've installed wampp 1.8 and Apache and MySQL are running,
The problem is, I get an object not found error whenever I access htdocs with my browser. Here are the settings in httpd.conf:

Listen 8080
ServerName localhost:8080
DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs"
<Directory />
AllowOverride none
Require all denied
</Directory>
AcceptFilter http none
<Directory "C:/xampp/htdocs">

I think that's it. I'm a complete newbie trying to learn php. Any
help anyone could give me would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Steve

Hello,

Listen 8080

If you change the default port from 80, you have to specify that port in every URL (Ex: http://localhost:8080/myfile.php). All browsers make the assumption you are using port 80 if you do not specify it.

Thanks for replying. I have been aiming my browser there without luck. http://localhost:8080/xampp/htdocs.
Any other ideas I can try?

Here's the apache error log from the last time I tried to access that directory.

[Thu Apr 11 07:10:07.477200 2013] [mpm_winnt:notice] [pid 1336:tid 460] AH00455: Apache/2.4.3 (Win32) PHP/5.4.7 configured -- resuming normal operations

Here is the access log:

Hi Steve,

Apache already routes you to the \xampp\htdocs\ folder if you request http://localhost:8080/. \xampp\htdocs\ is the DocumentRoot folder, so it is also the root of the URL.
So if you request http://localhost:8080/xampp/htdocs/ Apache searches for files in \xampp\htdocs\xampp\htdocs\ which is not present.

best wishes,
Altrea

Altrea,
I never thought seeing the words "Hello world" from my baby php script on my computer screen could make me so happy! Thank you! I can't tell you how grateful I am to get responses from yourself and hackattack142. Now on to my next ignorant mistake.
