I have followed the instructions from www.ipicdg.com
for installing xampp.
everything seems ok.
control panel is running and showing apache, mysql and mercury running.
when I type in http://localhost
i got "internet explorer cannot display the webpage"
I pressed diagnostics and the message is
"localhost is not set up to establish a connection on port 'world wide web service(http)' with this computer"
I installed xampp in c:\xampp.
I did not reboot my pc.
I have vista.
stopped and started apache - did not help.
any advice what I need to check.
