I have just had the most ridiculous week of work. I'm getting cracking on this now. I know I'm running miles behind, but this will be rectified pronto.

To work smiling smiley

After sorting out the issues with XAMPP and the various services (thanks Vista tongue sticking out smiley), I've completed Task 1A and Task 1B.

You need to install that XAMPP package to your hard drive, say C:\XAMPP. There's a file called readme_en.txt in that folder with the instructions. All I did, after reading the file, was run 'setup_xampp.bat', and then 'apache_start.bat' (this gets the Apache server started), and 'mysql_start.bat' (this starts the MySQL service). If those are running successfully, then you should have no problems accessing the localhost.

If this IS all up and running, and it's still not working, you probably need to copy your PHP file to the 'htdocs' folder in the XAMPP directory. This is where the localhost seems to look for any PHP files such as the ones we're going to be making. So, once you've copied your PHP file there, you'd access it by entering http://localhost/firstscript.php into your broswer. Unless we're meant to make a StudentPHP folder, but I couldn't figure out how to do that. I read about this in the 2008 forums, and it worked for me.

Man, I just realised that after you unzip the file on the Masterskills CD, there's a StudentPHP folder. If you copy this across to the 'htdocs' folder I mentioned, then you've got your localhost/StudentPHP folder. I take it it's meant to be there for the later tasks in the book. I hope this wasn't in the instructions somewhere tongue sticking out smiley

Hi All,

I think I am seriously behind, I know I will catch up. Though still having problem with my localhost issue. Let me try your steps as you have instructed.

This is not a PHP error - it is an html error. It cannot find the file, or the filename has spaces in it (sometimes you cannot "see" the spaces - start over renaming the file). Does the file c:/xampp/studentPHP/firstscript.php exist?

I did struggle initialy but realise that you need to copy all the files in the same folder or otherwise you will get error 404 not found.
