Ok, firstly, on the control panel of my xampp it says it is version 3.2.1, but I didnt see such option in the registration form. I use Windows 8.
I just had to change the 'port name' for apache and mysql as I kept getting an error message that the port was busy. Both are running fine now, but unfortunately, when I try to log in to localhost wp-admin, I get an error message which is the same when I do not have xampp running - This webpage is not available ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED. I am now wondering if this is because I changed the ports? Can anyone help me? I've been trying to figure this out for the whole day today and I'm feeling hopeless
