View Full Version : preview in browser problem

Hi Im trying to get to grips with PHP and MySQL. I've been following 'PHP - A Beginners Guide by David Jackson' which is very useful however I'm trying to preview the script in my browser and I get an error message telling me I need a testing server and I am not sure what URL prefix I need to use on the testing server page of manage sites. Could someone please help? Also if anyone knows of any other useful PHP tutorials that would be great. Thanks

I get an error message telling me I need a testing server

did you install wamp5?

Yes I followed the tutorial from the start and installed all the necessary applications. It wasn't until I added 'Test' to the end of 'http://localhost/' that I got the error message "The site URL prefix [/Test] for the testing server does not match the site URL Prefix [] specified in HTTP Address for the site..." Apologies for being such a novice I could have just missed out something earlier!! Any ideas?
