I've installed XAMPP for Windows. I'm using Windows XP 64-bit with SP2. XAMPP of course if installed as a 32-bit application.
First of all, I'm having trouble accessing the apache server at 'localhost'. I've seen some similar threads here with some solutions and whatnot. I'll try some of them. When I type 'localhost' or 'http://localhost/' in Firefox it tries to look up for www.localhost.com or something. If I type 127.0.0.1 it seems to work better. But still, some images or the left frame is not displayed until I manually refresh the page some times. Don't know what the problem is here.
Secondly, when I go to the Status page, there is a strange thing happening. Every time I refresh (or let's say every 5-10 seconds) some of the things there change their status from enabled to disabled and vice versa. For example PHP, MySQL Database, the script features etc.
Perhaps, that's why I can't see some of the xampp's php pages as I said above? (= related). In other words, it's not the refreshing that helps but the PHP is just disabled and after some seconds it becomes enabled and thus I'm able to correctly see the pages.
Don't know what's wrong. I've tried to disable the firewall and that sort of things. I can't say it helped.
Let me know what you think. (About the 'localhost' matter too if you can).
Thanks in advance.
