I have just installed XAMPP-Linux
on the installation notes at Step 4 it says to type http://localhost . when I do this I end up at a site in australia and not at the XAMPP index page. to get there I have to type http://127.0.0.1
I have not secured the MYSql to the network it is still open.
I cannot connect to databases because DBDesigner4 uses localhost and not 127.0.0.1 , is this my problem or do I have a bigger one?
any help gratefully recieved
