Hi there :)

How and where did you install xampp?
By Windows ultimate you mean Vista I guess.

I've bought a lampp book that was published for the "... For Dummies" Series (in case you don't know these, that isn't an offence, it really is a series :) ). Maybe there is also a XAMPP book.

Which version of XAMPP did you install?

If your OS is Vista are you logged in as an administrator to be able to administer a web server.

Good reading here?
