    Dreamweaver PHP question/ localhost

      Help!
      When i preview a .php file in a browser, I get the same error message.
      "Not Found" "the requested URL /name/ was not found on this server."
      I can't connect to any of my files using localhost. If I preview HTML files from DM, it actually just goes to the website.

      What is going on???

          What type of localhost server did you setup? Are we talking about MAMP or XAMPP or something else? Is the server turned on while previewing PHP pages?

            Hi

            What operating system are you running?

            what happens if you create a file with

            <?php

            phpinfo ();

            ?>

            and place it in the root of your local host?

            If you get a chance purchase David Powers book
