hi, im trying to make a website, but im totaly new; after few investigations i stoped at xxamp. i Downloaded and installed version 1.7.3 for windows. on the cmd.exe options i let the default ones. At the end i press 1 for starting control panel. then i try to start Apache and MySQL. Apache didnt start; in the lower window it shows Apache started but the green message "running" doesnt apear and the button is still "Start". MySQL is started and the mesage "running" its displayed. Next, im my IE7 when i type http:/localhost im redirected to IIE 7 page; when i type http:/localhost/phpmyadmin i get the rror message : "Server Error in Application "Default Web Site"" and "HTTP Error 404.3 - Not Found and a bunch of stuff like:
Description: The page you are requesting cannot be served because of the Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) map policy that is configured on the Web server. The page you requested has a file name extension that is not recognized, and is not allowed.

phpmyadmin folder is installed in c:\xxamp. shouldnt be in inetpub\wwwroot ?
any help in solving this installation issue is highly appreciated.
