I'm ashamed I even need to ask this but I can't seem to overcome a super basic setup issue.
I have XAMPP setup on my Windows Install already (and everything works) it is installed at:
If I just visit: h t t p://localhost I go directly to the XAMPP "welcome" page and if I visit:
h t t p://localhost/foo/index.php I can view the
index.php file in the
C:\xampp\htdocs\foo\ directory... and the PHP parses/executes just fine.
I next installed CodeIgniter and the instructions tell me to unzip CodeIgniter into the
htdocs directory... thus I now have
C:\xampp\htdocs\CodeIgniter\ \application \system \user_guide
Further in the setup it indicates to add/update/modify files in the various application subfolders inside the CodeIgniter folder... and then suggests that I can go to:
h t t p://localhost/index.php/pages/view to view pages I create.
However I can't get a single thing within CodeIgnitor to load except the default "hey you installed CodeIgniter!" page at h t t p://localhost/CodeIgniter/index.php
I've hit that frustration point where I just want the most basic thing inside CodeIgniter to load (and I honestly don't care if I can't load anything else in my htdocs directory).
What configuration change do I need to make (either within CodeIgniter or in my Apache httpd.conf) to make this all work?... or are the CodeIgniter install instructions misleading? (e.g. was I supposed to "lose" the CodeIgniter folder when I unzipped the application framework?)
Note: all the spaces in the localhost URL's are there on purpose and only there to overcome the SE systems anti-spam filtering. In addition although I specified localhost it was only to simplify the issue... e.g. I'm not having any network or DNS issues.
