I had some trouble installing XAMPP because I could not get the service on port 80 to stop. So upon suggestion I edited my httpd.conf file to use port 8000 instead of port 80. After doing this I was able to start the Apache service and see the "running" status in the XAMPP Control Panel. However, when I try to go to localhost/index.php or to localhost/test.php, I get the error "HTTP Error 404. The requested resource is not found.". I installed xampp in c:\xampp. If the control panel says the service is running, how can I get it to work. Is the correct thing to put in my browser window "localhost/index.php"? Is 8000 as a port ok? Thanks in advance for your help.
