So are you working on an upgrade-to-1.7 setup? I read it's not recommended to use the upgrade due to changes, but I haven't upgraded, so I don't know.
Anyways, so let me get this straight. You're trying to reach say mypage.php that's located in your root folder, htdocs, right? And you CAN or CANNOT reach it via localhost?
localhost doesn't go through your router, so if you're having the same issues with localhost, it sounds like a directory setting perhaps in httpd-vhost or in httpd.
Now if you're trying to access it via your external IP address, then yes, it could be a port forwarding setting. Otherwise it's behind the router and it doesn't make any difference.
Post your httpd-vhost settings (this file is found in xamp/apache/conf/extra) so we can take a look at it. I have a hunch it's going to be a setting misdirecting you.
By the way, have you tried logging in when prompted to do so? It's probably your XAMPP login. I would login and see where it's taking me. You also didn't confirm or say if where it's trying to take you in your browser when you go to http://localhost/
. That also would really help us to know.
Hopefully we can get it sorted out and you back on track.
