I have been following a tutorial I found for installing Apache, MySQL, and PHP. It had me create a file called phpinfo.php. Then I am suppossed to go to my web browser and type hxxp://locolhost/phpinfo.php. I do that and nothing happens. It just sits there.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do? Everything was going good to this point.

Thanks in advance.

first off, you want the address to be : [a href=\"http://localhost/phpinfo.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://localhost/phpinfo.php[/a]

the phpinfo.php file must reside in a folder on your computer which was specified in your http.conf file (in the apache folder).

(do a search for DocumentRoot).

if you intend to use multi-users, then you'll have to type :http://localhost/~yournamehere/phpinfo.php

usually the folder you create is called "My Webpage" (default) and it would go inside your "My Documents" folder.
