Hello all. I am extremely new to using PHP and Apache and I am having an extreme amount of trouble using Xampp. I downloaded the installer and ran it to completion. Once i completed the installation, I opened the control panel and both mySQL and Apache are running, however, when I go to http://localhost/ I receive a message that states It Works! I believe this is because of a previous installation I have tried to little success, however, I cannot find it running in control panel, nor do I know how to stop localhost from visiting that same file each time. I originally installed httpd.exe in my system and now I cannot remove it and am unsure exactly how to do so. Additionally, I need to know how to reassign xampp to view the correct directory for PHP. I know the installation is not working correctly because when I navigate my browser to C:/xampp/htdocs/index.php it reads "Something is wrong with the XAMPP installation "
I am using Windows 7 Home Premium. If anyone can help this is urgent please and thank you.
