I have installed XAMPP server and bitnami WordPress on my Ubuntu machine. I want to run a WordPress on my localhost but the following error occurs:

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 localhost Apache/2.4.25 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.2j PHP/5.6.30 mod_perl/2.0.8-dev Perl/v5.16.3

  • Hi, can you access the root folder of your website or you have trouble running XAMPP? You mean that even with the empty folder you get an error?
