I am willing to pay anyone that can help me get Xampp working on my system.
I think I have tried everything I've seen suggested and am still not able to access localhost on my computer.
I installed this version: xampp-win32-1.6.7-installer.exe
My system is XP sp3
In httpd.conf I have:
In my windows hosts file I have:
When I start the Xampp control panel and click Start on Apache, it shows the green text that says "Running" and says it is started on Port 80.
When I run xampp-portcheck.exe it shows Apache running on port 80
When I type either of the following into the browser, IE or Firefox, it continually shows the loading icon, but never loads anything. It does not display an error either, just nothing.
I do have an index.php file in the directory C:\xampp\htdocs
When I run netstat -ab I see 2 entries for apache.exe
Proto Local Address Foreign Address State PID
TCP vwdesktop:http vwdesktop:0 LISTENING 7536
TCP vwdesktop:https vwdesktop:0 LISTENING 7536
Should those say 80 instead of 0?
Also I have disabled firewall and it does not make any difference.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
