Sad but true - help on the CI installation


Im new to CI and tried to install it based on the installation guide you guys provide with the beginners guide, and also followed other install guides available on the web. I just moved from a windows environment to a linux one so i might be really doing some crazy wrong stuff with this but i swear i'm loosing my mind :|. So here are my steps:

note: im using Xampp(Lampp) for linux wich kindly installed apache+php and mysql residing in /opt/lampp/

1 - downloaded version 1.7.1

2 - moved CodeIgniter_1.7.1 directory to /opt/lampp/ht_docs/

3 - changed dir name from "CodeIgniter_1.7.1" to "shout"

4 - edited ht_docs/shout/system/application/config/config.php

5 - changed $config['base_url'] = ""; to $config['base_url'] = "http://localhost/shout/";

6 - opened browser and gone to http://localhost/shout/index.php/ to see if installation was successful

the page displayed:

Object not found!

The requested URL was not found on this server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
Error 404


what am i doing wrong here ? I really can't see whats wrong so please if you have any idea post it please =)

many thanks in advance and sorry for wasting your time on something so easy :|

Should it not be htdocs instead of ht_docs? Or did you change some config settings somewhere?

ops sorry it is htdocs my mistake.

EDIT: ok sorry guys problem is solved, dunno why but it started working now ( downloaded files and did the steps again and it worked fine, and i did do that like an hour ago with no luck ) maybe some files got corrupted i dunno, im just happy it works now Big Grin

So did that fix the problem or was it just a typo when you wrote up your steps here?

it was a typo everything was set properly. Guess a re-installation fixed it somehow now i can start finally =) thanks for the help Dam1an!

i had the same problem, a reinstall fixed it for me too.
