I'm a newbie to Xampp, etc., so please be easy on me.
I've been trying to create a store finder for my website. I've been following a tutorial posted on the Aciddrop.com website. Here's the URL - http://aciddrop.com/2007/12/17/quick-easy-and-free-nearest-store-postcodezip-finder/.
I'm using Xampp on an Apache server on my Windows pc. The Aciddrop turorial requires me to create a database in MySQL (which I've done) and uses some PHP code (which I've also had a go at). I've managed to get the store finder on my site. However, when I try to carry out a search, it comes up with a message saying 'Unable to connect!'.
First of all, I thought it may have been a problem with the PHP code, so I've been speaking to a guy on a PHP forum. However, he's now asked me to ask an Xampp guru for help. As the store finder uses Google API features, he's asking if this is part of the default Apache server installation. Can anyone shed any light?
