403 Forbidden error

Hi,

I downloaded XAMPP, "START"ed Apache and MySQL in the Control Panel, and tried to load up http://localhost/xampp/index.php or index.html, and I get this error of "You don't have permission to access /xampp/index.php on this server" consistently. I am running Firefox 3.0.1 with Windows XP. I also tried it using 127.0.0.1 rather than localhost.

Strangely, when I try to load up FileZilla through the XAMPP Control Panel, it says "ERROR: FileZilla must be run as a service".

All I want to do is write PHP scripts and see them output to start with. Is there an easier way to do that?

I downloaded XAMPP

ZIP, 7ZIP-EXE or installer EXE?
You have used "setup_xampp.bat"?

Used the installer, so I didn't have to run the bat. I just uninstalled and tried with the installer. Should I try unzipping?

Again, even after reinstalling, FileZillaFTP won't run; same error message. Not sure if that matters. And looking at the MySQL thing, MyODBC says:
"Not Found
Driver 3.51 Not Found"

FileZillaFTP won't run;

For FileZilla it's necessary to enable the "Svc" checkbox.

And looking at the MySQL thing, MyODBC says:
"Not Found Driver 3.51 Not Found"

That's normal.

Duh. Thanks. Still not working. I'll try it with the other methods.
