Support » Installing WordPress » xammp localhost: Object Not Found!

  • I’m trying to install and run my blog on my local machine (offline) using XAMMP

    Installed everything (xammp full version and database) according to

    Used SRC to change url’s in database to http://localhost/myblogname/

    I enter http://localhost/myblogname in the firefox location bar and the main page of mylog appears just fine. However, when I attempt to go to any other page/post on the site I get the following error message:
    Object not found! The requested URL was not found on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated. Please inform the author of that page about the error.
    If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
    Error 404

    Apache/2.0.54 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.0.54 OpenSSL/0.9.7g PHP/5.0.4

    Problem also occurs if I switch xammp to php 4.

    I’ve checked all the url’s in the database and the links have indeed been changed to http://localhost/myblogname. Even shows the proper ?p= reference to the page.

    The apache server is working properly.

    Any ideas as to what is wrong?

  • Problem solved by doing the following:

    As suggested by Podz at his Tamba2 WebSite:

    In phpMyAdmin,under the SQL tab, instead of importing the database file by using the browse function in the lower window, I copied and pasted the database contents in the upper window.

    The Permalinks now work fine.
