Hi,

Im a complete newbie to apache and I have a question. I recently installed the latest version of XAMPP so that I can use php mostly and test them locally offline. I was told that I would need a webserver
to test php pages and that I couldn't do it without. I cant seem to set it up though. Everything as far as I can tell is working correctly but I dont know how to upload to the localhost which is the machine I am working on offline. can I please get some help in how to set it up to work offline and what I will need to do to upload and test my PHP pages.

Hi Tokenhost,

If you go to [localhost...] in your web browser that file is coming from your local directory at path-to-xampp-installation\xampp\htdocs. I'm on Windows so for me it's at C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs. The XAMPP docs tell you how to change this at
[apachefriends.org...]
[apachefriends.org...]

Good luck,
Tim
