first program problem, page 23
I got apache, php, and mysql loaded and tested as per the book and thought i was good to go. Then I entered firstprog.php and saved it as instructed on page 23 when I went to localhost/firstprog.php with my browser, the page cannot be found error 404 appeared. I changed my path to include the directory i created for the programs which is c:\php\phpprogs. I also tried to put the entire path following localhost in the browser address. I restarted the machine. all to no avail. I looked at the errata and did not see any issues there either. any suggestions?. the it works screen comes up fine when i just use localhost alone but am stuck. thanks dennis lee

Localhost refers back to this location in your Apache server.

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs

if you put your programs inside htdocs folder, then you can use /localhost/yourfilename.php

Good luck
