I am running Windows XP SP2
Generally speaking, I can't run any Apache in either WAMP or XAMPP. I was originally running WAMP, but it stopped working and I decided to upgrade to XAMPP which I'd been wanting to do.
XAMPP did not work either. I and installed and uninstalled many times. I tried just unzipping files to root c:/ drive instead of installer.
I also tried a new version of WAMP.
The response is always the same: the browser cannot establish a connection to the server at localhost or 127.0.0.1.. Nor does phpmyadmin work, or the sql manger. All respond with can't establish connection.
All firewalls are off, virus protection is off. No IntetPub.
I run port check and they are all available, on, open, whatever.
The first error code I reported showed up at some point with XAMPP. It does not come up at all times
Any thoughts anyone?
