i installed apache2 php5 mysql and all that, after that i got the joomla done all the configuration and stuff and i was able to start my joomla control panel by going to http://localhost/administrator/index.php and it takes me to the control panel of the joomla and i can manage the website and make changes to it but i am not able to open the website to see it when i go to http://localhost it says "It Works !" and as i recall this was showing up when i was setting up the apache to show me that its working and now i don't know how to access and see the website that im making changes to with joomla
Can someone help me find or somehow redirect the http://localhost to point at the website that im building with the joomla so that im able to see what im changing
Sycamorex is a skilled troubleshooter, but I think I have the answer.
Go into your web directory (likely /var/www)
and rename the file index.html to OLD_index.html
Joomla has likely put some other file in there called "index" but with a different extension. Apache will pick up the 'index.html' file first and send that out to anyone who requests the root of the web server.
After you rename the index.html to OLD_index.html, the page request (http://localhost) should get handled by your Joomla install.
i think i dont have httpd in there i think it was /etc/apache2/apache2.conf i used this "howto" to set up the apache the mysql and the php https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP all from this tutorial worked except the phpmyadmin , which is not relevant to this problem
You might want to check if php is enabled in apache's httpd.conf
To enable it uncomment the following line:
php is enabled, because he is able to access the administration pages, which are dynamic php.
The problem here is what sycamorex hinted at earlier. The .htaccess has index.html ordered before index.php. This can also be easily fixed by just deleting (renaming) the default index.html file that is placed in the docroot during a fresh apache install.
If you want to check .htaccess, just make sure that index.php is before index.html
