Localhost page is not working

Postby followsfortyone » 31. May 2008 09:16

I just installed XAMPP on my Windows XP machine. The installation went perfectly. I started Apache and MySQL and both say they are running. My localhost page is not loading. It eventually says "Page not found".

I've tried:
-stoping Apache and MySQL and starting it again. (It starts fine but still no luck)
-restarting my laptop and restarting Apache and MySQL again

I read a few entries about having to change my /etc/network/interfaces file to turn on interface file loopback. How do I do that? (Is that a file in a folder somewhere? I can't find it):oops:

If that doesn't work, what else could it be?

Thanks!

What about unistalling and reinstalling Apache?
Uncheck and recheck the checkbox, I mean...

Thanks Logic,

I just tried reinstalling apache and mysql... Still no luck.

I forgot to mention that http://127.0.0.1/ works but localhost does not.

you should be able to access it via the ip of your machine as well, does that work. i.e.
http://192.168.1.x/
or what ever your ip is

try to look inside hosts file in ur C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\ directory. ur localhost is suppose to be mapped to 127.0.0.1 for it to work.

try to play with that file and see if it helps in anyway :)

my 2 cents
