Following Tutorial Problems - El Forum - 08-22-2012


I'm a newbie to frameworks and having followed the installation instructions, I figured my best course of action would be to follow the tutorial next. I'm having some troubles however.

I've followed the tutorial, even copy and pasting the code to make sure it's 100% correct but when I go to my view, I get a 404 instead.

I'm using XAMPP on a Mac so I'm not sure if this is just a case of getting the base_url wrong or if there's something else I'm missing. My base url is (ci is the folder in htdocs):

I point my browsers to:


Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Actually fixed this now, nothing wrong with my code or base_url but I had setup the file structure wrong. Really silly error, think I may need to spend some time learning the file structure!

Apologies for clogging up the forum, could this be deleted?

I'm actually having this problem right at this moment. I copied the code just to make sure I didn't make any typos and all I'm getting is a blank screen..

Does anyone know what could be causing this? I have not changed any directory names or anything.
