What do you mean by "not showing up"? PHP is part of Apache and needs not to be started separately. After installation and after starting Apache and MySQL, enter http://localhost into your browser. If you see a Welcome screen (callled "dashboard") everything is fine. You can click in the upper right on "PhpInfo" which brings up a technical information based on PHP.

Now you're getting it!
When I go to http://localhost, it returns page not found. There are diagnostic links, and one comes back that php is not working. (And yes, I know what "dashboard" means.....)

Is Apache started successfully?
Did you change anything since installation like the default port settings?

I would understand "Server not found", but "Page not found" is extremely strange. Did you change anything? Is it a fresh and clean install? And did Apache start correctly in your Xampp Controlbox?

i had the same issue, solved it by accessing the localhost using the port, so you have the type on the URL localhost:8080. Hope it helps you.
