Localhost is blank

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Localhost is blank

Postby hunna03 » 07. December 2008 21:26

I just installed Xampp. Vista Computer so I installed it in C drive instead of Program Files because of the whole UAC thing. Had no problems installing it. Installed it previously on other computers no problems.

But this time when I try to bring up localhost it's just blank. No errors, no nothing, no matter what OS I try to use.

Any ideas?

Try instead of http://localhost

If the IP address works then you have to go to the Windows HOSTS file and add a comment character to this IPv6 line:
::1 localhost
so it looks like this:
# ::1 localhost

The HOSTS file is located in this folder:
Drag the file into your TEXT editor and after editing save the file.

Now try using the http://localhost again.
Good luck.
