Connection refused.

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Connection refused.

I am using XAMPP 5.63. The installation has gone fine, but when I open the control panel, turn on mysql, and click Admin to go to the localhost site to create the database, it fails, and the page says it was a connection refused error. When I go to the Apache status page, it says that the MySQL database has been deactivated. Does anyone have any insights on how to resolve this? I've tried some other solutions, like uninstalling and reinstalling Xampp, disabling antivirus, and checking to see if the port was already in use (as far as I could see on the task manager, the port was not being occupied by anything else.), but I have not been able to solve this error on my own.

Did you start Apache too?
If yes, what happens if request http://localhost/ or http://127.0.0.1 ?

I see, so that was the problem. I feel embarassed for not figuring this out, although I am a total novice with using this kind of stuff. Thank you greatly for the help.
