I've had XAMPP set up and working fine and using it with NetBeans for PHP development for ages but haven't needed it for a couple of months and on returning to it it seems to have stopped working properly. Attempting the access my projects at http://localhost/htdocs/index.php just gives a can't find the server or page not found message (depending on the browser).
I get the same problem with http://localhost/xampp ... not found
However http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ does work so it is serving something.
What could have changed to stop it working?
