Default http://localhost/ Where does this pointer point? - 09-18-2004 , 04:05 PM






so, can anyone tell me where this pointer points? by that i mean which folder
is localhost??? is it C:\Documents and Settings\your_login_username OR just C:\
or is it C:\Documents and Settings???????????

localhost is important for me, because i have to set up a testing server, if
you want to see this testing server problem, see other messages posted by me....

but if you can answer only this question it's fine, so concluding, i want to
know where "localhost" pointer points to, meaning which folder or the place it
points to

Can you please keep everything threaded under the same subject line?

It points to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot

Depends on the configuration of your local webserver. Is your local
server up and running? What server is it? Apache? IIS?

You are using IIS locally.
You say IIS must be working, because you can view .asp pages.

But then in one of your replies, you say this:
"when i open IE and type http://localhost, it gives me the default error
page, which has the TITLE "Cannot find server"

*so- that would make me question whether IIS is really running and working*

this comes down to defining a Testing server to a local server installed on
your machine.

There are two parts to this-
What is the FILE PATH to where the testing server files for this SITE will
be stored. This will be a folder that is "under" the server, so they can be
served. In most installs on windows, it will start with
C:\Inetput\wwwroot\ then to the subfolder for this site

What is the HTTP browser path to view those files, using the local server.
This will start http://localhost/ then this site's folder

suggestion-
check some links in these searches-

http://www.macromedia.com/support/dr...ts/pws_ftp.htm


http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&i...IIS+windows+20
00+dreamweaver

http://groups.google.com/groups?q=se...eamweaver&h l
=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&safe=off&sa=N&tab=wg

If still unable to get it going (check the MM link though- all the way
through, the first one above. It's step by step)

Anyway- if still unable to get it working-
One- come back, start a New thread, giving info on what isn't clear, or at
what point things don't work.
Stop. Wait for replies to that ONE thread.
Then reply to those messages. Keep it ALL in one thread.

Otherwise, it's likely quite a few people will just filter this out- it's
just too much noise with no info to offer help on.

Please supply this info---

Open this site definition.
click the ADVANCED tab at the top of the Site Definition wizard.
Now click Testing Server, on the left side.

What exactly is in every field on the testing server pane.
