Bad news Jon, i was able to use http://localhost/xampp/
but the CD collection gave me this error:
Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]:  A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not (trying to connect via tcp://localhost:3306
) in C:\xampp\htdocs\xampp\cds.php on line 64
Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. in C:\xampp\htdocs\xampp\cds.php on line 64
Could not connect to database!
Is MySQL running or did you change the password?
I was able to access it yesterday right after the installation of xampp.... before i started to fart around with ini and settings files
I have however never been able to see mysql server to be active in http://localhost/xampp/status.php
As a last desperate option i uninstalled Xampp from my system ,did a restart and reinstalled it, but now the bugger give me the same error when trying to open the CD collection.
