I'm running Ubuntu and have just installed PHP5, Apache2, and MySQL. I created a PHP Project in Netbeans and trying to echo "Hello World." When I run it, I just get a 404 Not Found error with this "The requested URL /PhpProject1/index.php was not found on this server." Any ideas on what to do?

Is it running on localhost?
Have you stored the file under the localhost directory?
E.g. if you used XAMPP, your default localhost directory will be something like:

c:\xampp\htdocs\

Also check to see if Apache etc are running.

Ok, I think I fixed that problem. Now when I try to open the PHP file, it just opens Firefox and asks me if I want to Open or Save the file. What do I do?

Thanks ardav, but I think I just figured it out. I just stored my PHP file in the /var/www folder and directed Firefox to there and it worked!
