I downloaded XAMPP for Windows, I'm running Windows7.
I went into FireFox browser and typed "localhost" & just have a blank screen. The XAMPP home page doesn't appear.
I go to Advanced System Settings, click on Environment Variables to edit "Path" and I have this...
C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\;C:\Program Files (x86)\ActiveState Komodo Edit 5\;%CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;c:\Program Files (x86)\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Core-Static;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Roxio Shared\DLLShared\;C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTSystem\;C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin\
They want me to add \;C:\XAMPP\mysql\bin. To the end of the "path"
It pretty much has it in there already and it didnt work.
If I leave it and dont edit the "path" and type "mysql" after C:\users\scotty> in the command line.
My response is... mysql is not recognized as an internal or external command.
