Does it work when you go to http://127.0.0.1

Do you use a proxy to connect to the internet?

Are you certain Apache is running (in the green state) and did not crash/shutdown shortly after starting?

Are there any errors in your Apache logs (/xampp/apache/logs/error.log)?

No it still does not work when I go to http://127.0.0.1. I don't think I use a proxy to connect to the internet but I'm not 100% for sure on that one. I don't know if Apache is starting then stopping. When I start Apache with the XamPP control panel I just get the message Apache started Port 80. But when I went to look at the error logs I don't have any thing in the folder. I went to (/xampp/apache/logs but then the folder says This folder is empty

It sounds like are you still using the old Control Panel and that Apache is not actually starting.

You should use the newer Version 3 control panel (xampp-control-3-beta.exe) in the main XAMPP folder. It will not tell you the port number in the bottom log window when you start a program, that is behavior of the old Control Panel Version 2.5.

Apache might not start if it is missing dependencies or if one of the required ports is not free. First, try installing this: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... px?id=5582

The modules will have a solid green background if they are running. You can also obtain a more updated version of the control panel here: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=48932

Okay started using the new Xampp control panel and installed the link that was below. The first time I started Apache it just said Apache started and then in the next line it states that Apache stopped. But after I restarted the Apache it just stayed on starting Apache app.

Does the status window of the new control panel v3 give you any more information right after starting the control panel and after trying to start the Apache and MySQL component?

Just a guess:
Maybe the path correction routine of the setup_xampp.bat file has some problems with an XAMPP folder inside another XAMPP folder.
Please try to uninstall your XAMPP completely (inclusively deleting your xampp folder(s)) and reinstall it from a fresh installation file directly in your c:\ path, so that you only get one xampp directory.

I've uninstalled twice already and both times it installs a Xampp folder inside the original Xampp folder. It was downloading to my download folder and I changed it to the c:\ but it still installed 2 folders of Xampp

Finally. The problem was coming from the fact that I was not installing the Install package. But now my next question is how do I upload files to the server? I know stupid question but this is a first time for everything with me

Simply save them somewhere inside your C:\xampp\htdocs\ folder (or any subfolder in it exept the C:\xampp\htdocs\xampp\ folder).

Assumed you have a file test.php and save it in the folder C:\xampp\htdocs\mytestproject\ you can simply request it from your Apache with the URL http://localhost/mytestproject/test.php

generally speaking: http://localhost/ is pointing to your C:\xampp\htdocs\ folder.
