I am running Windows XP SP2. I had an earlier install of Apache that I manually installed that was working at one time. Then I screwed it up. SO I uninstalled it and deleted the files. Then I downloaded XAMPP and installed it following the checkboxes. I selected install as a service for Apache, MySQL and FileZilla.
Now when I run the control panel is says it is started but I cannot access http://localhost/
. I get nothing back. Also, I do sometimes get a windows error
in Apache. I assume this is related but then I got them before as well and the Apache server worked.
Any ideas where to start looking? I am doing this to stand up a MediaWiki. I already have one at the office but I would like to be able to set up a sandbox at home. I think if I can get proficient with it, I may be able to convince the IIS and Websphere guys that Apache has a place too.
