WAMP Installation - Newbie

Recommended Posts

I am very new to the php world. I am trying to get everything up going to start practicing with PHP. I currently have installed the Newest version of WAMP on a Windows XP system. The installation went fine and the notification area shows that all services are running. When I go to [a href=\"http://localhost/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://localhost/[/a] I get the Apache default page which consists of:

Index of /

Name Last modified Size Description
PBarFarms/ 03-Apr-2006 19:10 -
Thumbs.db 13-Apr-2006 09:29 8.0K

Apache/2.0.55 (Win32) PHP/5.1.2 Server at localhost Port 80


Inside PBarFarms folder I have only one file: index.php. I cannot seem to access this page. If I click on PBarFarms, IE gives me the The page cannot be displayed with Cannot find server on the title bar.

I just do not understand all the concepts going on here to fix my problem. Please let me know if I can give any more information to help with this. Can someone please guide me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

Also,

If I place index.php inside C:\wamp\www folder, I get page cannot be display when going to [a href=\"http://localhost\" target=\"_blank\"]http://localhost[/a].

OK, I tried placing a simple hello world php file in C:\wamp\www and when I go to [a href=\"http://localhost/helloworld.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://localhost/helloworld.php[/a], everything works fine.

So, my problem is that I have an existing php web site that I will be maintaining and when I copy all the files from that site into the C:\wamp\www folder I still get page cannot be displayed. What am I doing wrong? I just do not get it. Thanks
