I have previously had Apache and MySQL running on my Windows XP machine.
I want to use a framework, eg Seagull, and my reading seemed to suggest that using XAMPP would produce a more robust basis for this adventure.
I uninstalled Apache, MySQL, PHP, Pear, etc and downloaded XAMPP today. XAMPP installed without problem. The control panel reports that Apache, MySQL and FTP are all working as services.
However in Firefox http://localhost
tell me that they cannot connect.
I have examined php.ini and httpd.conf and they seem to be set up correctly.
Please can you tell me what else I should look for and where?
Apologies for being such a fool.
