After unzipping the given files and moving them to htdocs, I still can't seem to get the local host to load correctly
When I try to reload localhost after moving the downloaded material to htdocs, the page is still just "index" with my only option to click on test.php. Why isn't the preformed "Shirts 4 Mike" site loading?

1)When you download the materials, extract the folder, open it, open the subfolder with the files you need depending on your system (Mac/Windows), then select all the files inside and copy them 2)Open the C:\xampp\htdocs folder and paste the files in 3)Make sure you have Apache and MySQL running. Do this by launching XAMPP and then activating both. 4)Now open a web browser such as chrome and write to the address line localhost You should see the project.
I hope this helps. If not, please, try providing more details.
