Hi, I'm new at Xisto, and it's a good host, but there are too many forums so sorry if I got this is the wrong forum.
I am using Fedora 9 (Linux) and I want to test PHP locally and one of the moderators said XAMPP is good. I''ve got it installed and that, and I can go to the XAMPP page by going to LOCALHOST/xampp/ and logging in.
However, I want to know how I can use XAMPP to test PHP locally.
Any help would be appreciated.
Store your scripts/programs in the htdocs sub-folder under the XAMPP folder.
Then access the script using LOCALHOST/folder/script.php in your Browser. Be certain that the XAMPP Apache Server is running before calling the script.
I don't get what you mean by access the script. To go on XAMPP, in the Terminal, I type
su-root password-/opt/lampp/lampp start
Dunno where XAMPP for Linux expects files to be... Generic Apache configuration on my Linux looks in /var/www for files and scripts... Maybe there? You should read XAMPP documentation, or configuration files, to see where XAMPP wants the files to be...
