Xampp "Page cannot be displayed" error

Postby Musether » 22. January 2009 01:24

I'm currently running XAMPP 1.7.0 on a server with Windows Server 2008 installed.
UAC has been disabled, if that helps.

When I go to http://localhost/security the page fails to load, however it will load when I click on the Dutch language option on the security page.

After that, when I try to access http://localhost/security/xamppsecurity.php it brings up a white page with the error message "Internet Explorer cannot display this page" on it.

The same error message occurs when I try to access PHPMyAdmin, and despite me uninstalling and reinstalling XAMPP several times, the problem still occurs.

You need to change 2 settings in the xampp\apache\conf\httpd-xampp.conf file from Allow from localhost to Allow from

Save the file and restart Apache.

What do you see when you go to http://localhost only?

Any clues in the xampp\apache\logs\error.log file?
