I tried the xammpp for linux, but after I had installed I had a problem (I'm beginer)
1. I downlad the xampp-linux-1.4.14.tar
2. tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.4.7.tar.gz -C /opt
3. cd /opt/lampp
4. ./lampp start
Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.4.7...
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for Linux started.
5. I opened firefox and I typed it: http://localhost
6. Then a window was popped up the folloing message: "connection refused to localhost"
I don't konw it is necessary to say or not, I use Mandriva2005 and I don't use any firewall protection. In the background I see the daemons running.
I don't know why I get this message or what the problem was:
-maybe I have to install some package ????
-maybe I have to set something else ???
So I don't understand, because I should get this message when I don't start apache and mysql (I think)
Please, help me !
