i renamed the index.html to old_index.html and it still doing the same thing but fortunately i almost figured it out when i go to http://localhost/administrator it takes me to control panel of joomla when i type in now http://localhost/index it takes me to the web bage that i am building but unfortunetly on every link that i click it takes me back to http://localhost which is the default page i suppose and whenever i try to click on something in the website it takes me there and just says "its working ! " the freakin apache is using the localhost to tell me that its working.... its driving me crazy :d

Try temporarily removing any .html files (index) from the root directory. See what happens.

also, try to type this in:


What does that get you?

Also, I haven't seen any response from you about what your .htaccess file looks like. Joomla will install an example file titled 'htaccess.txt'.. If you have NO file called .htaccess in your root directory, try copying the example provided by joomla---

cp htaccess.txt .htaccess
