I recently installed XAMPP v.3.2.2. I have since been trying to test if PHP is properly configured by Apache. But I keep getting this error every time I try to run any PHP file. I have stored the files under C: drive->XAMPP->htdocs.
Can someone please tell me how to resolve this? enter image description here

  • Are you suggesting that test.html does work if placed in the same directory and requested in the same way? The output you are seeing is a "404 Not Found" response, as if the file does not exist at all, not that "PHP is not running"?

"404 Not Found" response means file doest not exist in that directory. i would suggest to recheck the name of the file you are calling. there might be some file naming issue
