The web server is Apache. Check that it's running.

Well, what are you trying to do?

If you have an ISP running a site on rem5.com you should use the ISP's webserver. That will not be the XAMPP server of course, because the ISP has installed its own Apache (or IIS or whatever it may be). So to run your applications, upload your html applications to the ISP and run it from there. No XAMPP issue.

If you try to run your own server, you have got nothing to do with rem5.com. Use your own url, connected to your own IP number. Install your html applications locally under htdocs.
