I hope someone can help me as I have spent all day on this and got back to square one.
I originally installed Xampp 1.7.2 and it worked fine. I found out some way down the line of getting this all working with Eclipse that Joomla cannot work with 1.7.2.
As such, I deleted the xampp folder on the C: drive which was 1.7.2 and installed 1.7.0.
However, after doing that the control panel shows me a green bar for Apache, yet if I try and reach localhost I get an 'Unable to connect' error page.
If I click the MySQL start on the control panels I get an immediate error message as follows:
- Code: Select all
ERROR: MySql service not started [-1]
So in essence I have gone from having it all working this morning and working on Joomla files via Eclipse, to now not even being able to get apache and MySQL working nor interact with a browser.
I'm wondering if I should be deleting other files somewhere else or something?
If anyone can shed some light I would be truly grateful.
