I couldn't get Apache to install properly because it kept saying that port 80 and 443 were in use although they were (Skype and McAfee were turned off, and I'm not using IIS!) I found a fix online that required I changed a few things in the files, (ie: telling Apache to run on ports 8080 and 4499) and then Apache started working fine.
I'm still not able to view Localhost, though. I can view localhost:8080, but that doesn't help me much! I thought I found a way to turn on the (HTTPS) SSL which was deactivated, and I hoped that would solve it, but I can't figure out how to activate it.
I'm trying to install Joomla and I've spent the past 4 hours trying to figure out how to get Xampp to work first!!!
Help! This is so frustrating!
