I recently did a course on PHP and Apache, which used the XAMPP package. Copying the relevant files onto memory stick, I transferred everything to my home computer. Installation went fine but when I try to run Apache it doesn't seem to work.
Using the path http://localhost/class1.html in my browser gives "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost".
class1.html is where it should be in htdocs.
The application is unblocked on firefox.
I tried changing the port from 80 to 2000 in httpd.conf, but that didnt help. (Yes I used http://localhost:2000)
I am running Window XP, Professional, version 2002, service pack 2. I wonder if I need Server 2003 or such to be able use localhost? Should I be able to use localhost with a default setup or do I need extra software?
I don't want to buy any new stuff, just practice some coding as soon as possible.
