PHP Tutorial
 
I have followed the tutorial exactly, but got stuck on step 6. When I try to preview in the browser it shows me this.

Quote:

Not Found

The requested URL /test/dwc.php was not found on this server.
Apache/2.0.59 (Win32) PHP/5.2.0 Server at localhost Port 80


I have entered this code:

Code:

<?php

require_once("connections/connection.php"); //database connection

$query        =    sprintf("SELECT * FROM table1");
$result        =    @mysql_query($query);
$row        =    mysql_fetch_array($result);

echo $row['field2'];

?>

Could anyone help me?

the path designated by apache does not match the path in dreamweaver

you need to find the path thats configured in apache

I think I understand what you are saying. I am using the wampserver and the designated path of the apache is the local host right? And that is why it cannot be found. How can I change the path of the wampserver to point to the a different directory ? Thank you!

to find out where your wamp server has designated its root see figure1 and 2 below

create a blank file in DW and remove all the HTML that DW writes

in code view ad the following

Code:


<?php
 
phpinfo();
 
?>

save this off as info.php and copy it to the path that wamp server has as www root (above)

open your browser and in the address type...

http://localhost/info.php

or just click on the link above.

Wow nice details! Unfortunately I still cannot get the page to come up correctly. I created a folder on my desktop called websites and have the webroot and local root folder there.

Code:

Index of /

Icon  Name                    Last modified      Size  Description
[DIR] local root/            30-Dec-2006 20:35    - 
[DIR] webroot/                30-Dec-2006 20:36    - 

Apache/2.0.59 (Win32) PHP/5.2.0 Server at localhost Port 80


When I go to my browser and type local host it shows that website folder. I can navigate to the info.php and it shows me:

What should I do now?

where ever you have webroot/test/

that is your root directory (/test/)

all your files must be placed in there for it to work through localhost

lezgettdrunk 01-01-2007 12:08 AM

I understand that, but my files are in webroot/test. The problem is that the apache path is pointing to the folder containing the webroot & localroot folder and not to the path webroot/test. I'm trying to find out how to change the path of apache or can that not be changed?

davidj 01-01-2007 12:21 AM

if apache is using webroot as the webroot and its not using webroot/test/ then thats fine as anything in webroot will be processed through the PHP engine

thats what you want really so you can add other working/project directories under webroot

lezgettdrunk 01-02-2007 01:43 AM

apache is not using webroot, but using this path

C:\Documents and Settings\Allen\Desktop\website

localroot and webroot are in that folder.

So what can I do?

lezgettdrunk 01-02-2007 02:54 AM

I tried uninstalling wamp server and changed the apache path to the

C:\Documents and Settings\Allen\Desktop\website\webroot\test

But when I hit f12 to preview in browser it shows me

Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in C:\Documents and Settings\Allen\Desktop\website\webroot\test\connec tions\connections.php on line 8

Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in C:\Documents and Settings\Allen\Desktop\website\webroot\test\dwc.ph p on line 7
