Starting issue

Postby dtommy79 » 24. June 2008 21:45

Hi,

I've downloaded the xampp (exe windows version). I installed it on my laptop but it won't work. From the control panel I start apache and mysql, but I can't open anything in the browser.
I installed xampp on my C drive in a xampp directory.
I cant even open phpmyadmin (http://localhost/phpmyadmin)
I use vista home edition.

Do I have to do anything else during the install?
Any idea?
Thanks

So you have confirmed that Apache is running then and it doesn't crash or anything like that? You should check in tack managed to make sure that you see the apache.exe process running.

Try to go to 127.0.0.1 also instead of localhost. It shouldn't make a difference, but if something got screwy in the host file, then it could.

If that doesn't get us somewhere, what exactly happens when you try to open up the page in your browser? Do you get an error? A time out? Nothing at all?

I thought it might, Vista has a line in the host file that looks something like this:
Code: Select all
::1      localhost

The problems is that since Apache doesn't listen on the IPv6 address, that doesn't work. You can change it to:
Code: Select all
127.0.0.1      localhost

if you want or you can simple use the IP.
