I went through these clear instructions - '' and installed Cacti together with IIS instead of Apache.

Everytime I try to browse http://localhost/index.php, a message states that the page cannot be found and I am sure that PHP is working fine as I've tested it.

Can someone help me please?

Thanks, Chris

As the manual says: point your web browser to http://your-server/cacti/

In your case it's http://localhost/cacti/

cacti is hosted on the same server, therefore i don't think it makes any difference as i am using 'localhost' as the website's name – user49125 Jul 29 '10 at 15:19
What you are missing is the difference between localhost/index.php and localhost/cacti/index.php – David Mackintosh Jul 29 '10 at 20:41
Sorry, that's the same web address I am trying to access.. localhost/cacti/index.php, still without success.. – user49125 Jul 30 '10 at 7:05
any updates on this query? if you didn't understand what happened let me know and i can give you an RDP to logon and configure it yourself, should you wish to.. look forward to your reply, thanks.. – user49125 Aug 2 '10 at 15:17
Sorry, I'm not IIS guy. If there is no significant reason to stay with IIS, I would recommend installing Apache. Beside that, the manual is little obsolete, since stable version of PHP is 5.2. – mkudlacek Aug 3 '10 at 6:24
