I’ve installed XAMPP on my Linux computer and server and database are running. Now I have a question how to execute my existing PHP-Files from
So far I have saved all of my PHP files in
./home directory (e.g.
/home/Path-to-PHP-Files/Development_01/....php) and until now I have uploaded them with FTP to server. In order to save myself from constant uploading, I thought that usage with XAMPP is faster and more elegant.
I found out that XAMPP apparently wants to save the PHP files in
/opt/lampp/htdocs directory. Unfortunately I can neither call my PHP files from
.home-directory in browser nor can I copy them to
/opt/lampp/htdocs because this path is read-only.
How can I configure XAMPP to make my PHP files run in
DocumentRoot in your virtual hosts file, then restart XAMPP. Here is an example:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin [email protected] DocumentRoot "/home/Path-to-PHP-Files/Development_01/" ServerName dummy-host.example.com ServerAlias www.dummy-host.example.com ErrorLog "logs/dummy-host.example.com-error_log" CustomLog "logs/dummy-host.example.com-access_log" common <Directory C:/home/Path-to-PHP-Files/Development_01/> # or a linux path Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> </VirtualHost>
