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.


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:



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



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...


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.


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
