Hi, I've done some googling and searches and can't seem to find a problem that mirrors mine, but apologies if I've not looked hard enough.
I have XAMPP installed on my Windows Vista machine and have been using it successfully, until recently.
Following no configuration changes that I can recall, pages accessed at "localhost" (powered by XAMPP) now time out (tried on multiple browsers). There's not an "address not recognised" error, but simply a white space followed by a time out error message.
One thing I have thought could be interfering with XAMPP is an installation of "MonYOG", a MySQL monitoring system that also runs from the localhost address. However, MonYOG runs from "localhost:5555", not simply "localhost". This IS working, but I can't recall testing if both XAMPP and MonYOG simultaneously worked.
I've tried editing the hosts file (as recommended at http://www.emagi.co.uk/3030/how-to-get- ... dows-vista) and I've tried copying a file called "msvcp71.dll" to the root XAMPP folder (as recommended at http://roxxor.co.uk/blog/2007/06/xampp-on-vista/) - both to no avail.
Is my problem my a "localhost" clash, or is it something different?
How would one go about solving my problem?
