XAMPP version 1.7.7
Control Panel Version 3
Windows 7 Ultimate
For the last two days I have been unable to access localhost on any browser, after 6 months of problem free use. I have:
removed my antivirus,
tried re-installing xampp,
edited the windows32/drivers/etc/hosts file,
checked for any other application using port 80
uninstalled anything that was installed around the date xampp stopped working
and am now at a loss what to do next. When I type 'localhost/webfolder' in Firefox it defaults to 'http://www.localhost.com/' and in Chrome it tries to go to 'http://www.localhost/'
Any help much appreciated.
