without any sample code or a much much more detailed error reporting, no chance!

AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) is a browser (client) side development method and so not really a server (Apache) issue that many settings on the server can remedy.

Usually the error is the other way round, works on localhost but not on a hosted server.

Is your hosted server the same type as your localhost server?

What version of XAMPP have you installed?

Are you using a link to an AJAX file on the web or a file that your html/css/javascript is relying on?
If so then download the file(s) and store it/them in your site locally and edit the link to reflect this - often people use Google's file repositories or similar file sources to download files and often this can lead to problems.

Check your links in the html will work at localhost and do not rely on a hosted server as AJAX relies on HTML, CSS and JavaScript to function fully and if any of these requirements are giving errors then AJAX will also fail.
TIP.
You can copy and paste the links to files, that you want to check directly, into your browser and see if the files will download without issues.

Are you getting any error messages in your browser?

See if there are any clues in the C:\xampp\apache\logs\error.log file or the access.log file at about the date and time you last try to run your AJAX script.

Also I would take a close look at your browser's settings to allow scripting for localhost or even a firewall setting or even a ZoneAlarm setting that may be blocking your progress using localhost.

Try using different browsers and see if you get the same result as Firefox, it seems, can sometimes be the culprit of AJAX issues.

Take a look at these search results as they may contain some clues.

Good luck. :)
