Hi All

I have been using XAMPP on windows for a while which is fairly straight forward but on Linux its giving me bit of grief (I'm using Fedora 7), installation was fine I've tested localhost I can see "Welcome to XAMPP for Linux 1.6.4 ! " etc. on the web browser. The problem is when I'm creating my own php or html scipts and placing them in htdocs folder I can Not see them they will not display on browser the message shows this file is Not on serever. This is the error message I'm getting;

Not Found

The requested URL /quiz.html was not found on this server.
Apache/2.2.6 (Unix) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.6 OpenSSL/0.9.8e PHP/5.2.4 mod_apreq2-20051231/2.5.7 mod_perl/2.0.2 Perl/v5.8.7 Server at localhost Port 80

quiz.html is my own file that I have placed in htdocs folder. Xampp index.html (Welcome etc.)file shows in browser perfectly fine. I have given permission (CHMOD 777) to htdocs folder it didn't make any difference. Can some please help!!!

Thanks

Why exactly are you not going with Fedora's httpd, php, and mysql packages?

If you want XAMPP try their support forums, as most users of LAMP here use the Fedora packages I'll bet.
