How do I actually run a file on localhost?
I know it is working, but how do I run a file on it, and how do I verify that the file is in fact running on localhost?
Server newbie here, additional questions (I have xampp running Apache 2.2):
From your responses it sounds like I have to type in the path in the browser in order to open the file on the localhost. So, if I want to have the file in a subdirectory, I would have to type the full path including the directory?
Is there a way to have the browser point to the localhost while I am working on my html, instead of having to type in the path all the time?
I am working in Dreamweaver CS3, and want to use include commands (either SSI or PHP), but not have to keep putting my files up on HostGator in order to see if they are working.
What is the best way to do this (please be specific, I know nothing). If there is a detailed tutorial anywhere, really appreciate a link.
