Cannot Find Localhost

Cannot Find Localhost

Postby trickymatt » 29. January 2012 14:51

Hello,

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
tried 127.0.0.1/webfolder

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.

Matt

EDIT: have just tried 127.0.0.1 and that has taken me to the xampp for windows homepage, still can't access my htdocs folder though

LATEST: this url works http://localhost/xampp/index.php I switched back to my old httpd.conf file (which worked for months) which has the following changes:

DocumentRoot "C:/users/user/desktop/dropbox/dropbox/htdocs"
<Directory "C:/users/user/desktop/dropbox/dropbox/htdocs">

and still have the same problem, but can still access http://localhost/xampp/index.php
