can't access localhost

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

can't access localhost

Postby Prayera » 28. May 2009 00:28

Hi, I am a real beginner and I have problems starting. After installing, I try to access localhost (I also tried with 127.0.0.1), but the browser tells me that "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost" even though "the site seems valid". Please tell me what shall I do?

Thank you!

Did you open the XAMPP Control Panel and start Apache and MySQL?
C:\xampp\xampp-control.exe

Did you read the readme_en.txt file, the XAMPP for Windows Home Page and the FAQ?
