no access to localhost after installing

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

no access to localhost after installing

Postby amc » 16. January 2010 15:15

either installing raw apache or xampp, //localhost is not accessible. Should be a kind of firewall or security problem. Is there any guidance to fix that, please?

try http://localhost/

Have you started Apache?

cannot connect to http://localhost, either

I didn't start Apache, i started xampp, and XAMPP Control Panel says that program says Apache Started, although I can't see any process with a name similar to appache, all I see is xampp-control.exe

thanks

Please read the \xampp\apache\logs\error.log file for clues why Apache can't start.

In the XCP if Apache or any other XAMPP component is started then a green running indication will be displayed next to the name of the component.
although I can't see any process with a name similar to appache,
When Apache is started and running then there will be 2 processes called httpd.exe seen.

BTW, you omitted what XAMPP version and Windows OS you are using.

ok, works now (I don't know why)
I see the green running
I see two httpd.exe
error file reports some messages about starting process, but no errors
//localhost gives a xampp page

xampp is 1.7.3
os is xp sp3

so, who knows. . at least it seems to be working

thanks
