I fired off the XAMPP control panel, all apache, mysquel, filezilla are running and have the green light on.
when I type in the adress http://localhost/
the browser gives me Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to localhost
. I tried in various browsers, and they are all in the online mode.. to no avail.
However, when I go into the xampp directory, and double click on the index file it loads it.
