Base_Url, Etc Please Explain

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I apoligize for jumping in the middle of this conversation but I too am going crazy trying to get the app started.

 

I am running Win 7 Professional SP1, installed xampp (Version 1.8.0) from ApacheFriends many months ago and have been using it for various other projects so I am comfortable w/ the installation. MySQL v 5.5.25a; Apache 2.4.2; PHP 5.4.4. Apache is running as a service on Port 80 and 443. MySQL is running as a service on Port 3306.

 

Therefore, DOCUMENT_ROOT is c:/xampp/htdocs. The first exercise is in a directory under DOCUMENT_ROOT in a directory called /ecommerce1. config.inc.php and mysql.inc.php are in the includes directory under ecommerce1.

 

So, my question is 2 fold: What exactly does BASE_URI and BASE_URL represent or mean? Looking at the previous question and answer under "Base URL and URI, I am lead to believe that BASE_URI would be 'c:/xampp/htdocs/ecommerce1/' and BASE_URL would be 'localhost/'?

 

Is this a correct assumption?

 

Now the bigger problem!!

 

When trying to execute "http://localhost/ecommerce/index.php" after completing chapter 3 using FireFox, I get severe errors. To remove any of my mistakes, I have substituted the author's code for config.inc.php, mysql.inc.php, index.php, header.php, footer.php & styles.css.

 

config.inc.php has 'BASE_URI', 'c:/xampp/htdocs/ecommerce1/'; 'BASE_URI', 'localhost/', MYSQL, BASE_URI . 'includes/mysql.inc.php' config.inc.php is in the includes directory. Chapter 4 code at the end of this module has been commented out.

 

mysql.inc.php defines have been changed to reflect my DB_USER, PASSWORD parameters.

 

line 42 of the footer.php has been commented out (require ('includes/login_form.inc.php');

 

Now this is what I am getting when I run localhost/ecommerce1/index.php!!

It appears that I have a major problems with my installation as programs that use to work no longer do and even phpinfo() fails with a Server Error!!

 

I will research the changes I have made to various Apache and PHP config files otherwise I will remove and re-install everything.

 

John
