I'm using xampp 1.7.1 and I have a few localhost websites. When I enter http://localhost in my browser, I get a xampp welcome page with the following message:
"Welcome to XAMPP for Windows Version 1.7.1 !
You have successfully installed XAMPP on this system!
However, when I go to my test site where Joomla 1.5.15 is installed (e.g. http://localhost/test001/), I get an error "Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL".
When I go to a regular html site, I get an error "Restricted access".
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.
