[solved]XAMPP 1.8.0 Fresh Install Localhost Issue

Postby Apocalypsse » 07. August 2012 12:01

I've just installed XAMPP 1.8.0 on my pc with Windows 7 64 bit. When I go to http://localhost/ it comes up with 'Could not connect to remote server'. The control panel says Apache/MySQL is running, I can turn MySQL on/off but I have to exit the CP to turn off Apache. There are no error logs for Apache.

Whats the go here? I've had XAMPP running on Vista 32 bit but I can't get it running now on win7 64bit.

Perhaps your host file has localhost commented out?

Nope. Host file is just fine. Using http://localhost:port/ also yields the same result, except 1 port listed on the XAMPP CP redirects to my network card admin cp.

MySQL has this in the error log:

Seems it works fine when I have the apache_start batch file running, but it still doesn't work when just using the control panel alone.

Hi Apocalypsse,

Have you registered the service checkfields of the components in the control panel?
If yes, please untick them and try again to start

Have you started the control panel with enhanced administrative priviledges?
If no, please do this. Some actions can only be done if running with enhanced administrative priviledges (especially things with windows services).

best wishes,
Altrea

I don't have them running as services.

This has fixed it, I hit 'Run as Admininstrator' on the shortcut and now Apache starts/stops properly from the control panel.

Thanks for the help.
