After reinstalling apache, php in vista I got trouble displaying my htdocs folders on browser. Some were there and some were not. I double checked my apache settings if I missed something but so far I did not. I compared what’s the difference of those folders and found out that the one with .htaccess file in it were not showing. Realizing that, it means something to do with my htaccess file. Checked my httpd.conf settings and I forgot to uncomment this line #LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so, so all you need to do is uncomment it and you’re good to go.
