First website

I am setting up my first server and cannot figure out why I get "NOT FOUND. The requested URL /Mysite/login.php was not found on this server." I have the Mysite folder with 755 permissions along w/the same login.php permissions. I also have a virtual server for the folder setup and is located in /var/www/Mysite. I am not that good with terminal and use webmin to get do my server work. What am I doing wrong here?

RE: First website

Are you requesting /Mysite/login.php OR http://localhost//Mysite/login.php in your browser?

RE: First website

The URI most probably would be http://localhost/Mysite/login.php or even http://localhost:81/login.php depending on the mapping including which port.

As this is your first experiment with apache, don't try too much at first, simply try to get http://localhost working and as first experiment add some php file in the www dir just doing some echo "hello world" and see if that is found, then you may go further.

Bye, Olaf.
