I'm trying to get Joomla! going on my local machine (Win XP). I have Apache, MySQL and PHP installed and working. I've followed the directions from http://api.joomla.org/ric_INSTALL.php.html
up thru #2, with the Joomla! files copied to the directory indicated by http://localhost/Joomla
When I go to http://localhost/Joomla
as indicated in the third part of the installation instructions, I get a directory listing that does not include any html files. So I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do next; if I choose install.php, it won't run unless I edit the file to include the bang (#!/php/php); when I do try to run it then, I get "The requested URL /Joomla/installation/index
.php was not found on this server."
Ideas? tia, Bill
