I've been trying to figure out why my XML and XSL transformation keep failing to generate in XML originally the format was in HTML and it generated perfectly. But after I changed the output method for XSL to HTML it did not generate for me when I tried transforming

my XML
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="/(name of file).xsl"?>

this code is after changing my output to HTML ^^ (also I've spaced out the https links cause it limited me to not send this in this forum due to being a new user)

Adding onto that my HTTP server has also been facing issues I was not able to locate the original outputted transformation of my HTML code to the HTTP preview server on the configuration, it did not appear on the section to let me choose it either. The original output did not appear when I clicked on Edit Configuration > Common > Folder either. When I run the server it does not seem to pop up either but I can see that its running. I've already changed the port to 8080 with assistance of someone's inquiry from this forum.

You haven't mentioned any error messages for the transformation, nor what's performing the transformation. I'm also not sure what Folder field you're editing for the HTTP Preview server. Could you provide that information?
