Cant access localhost

Problems with the Mac OS X version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Cant access localhost

Postby kkillgasmm » 13. October 2007 19:13

Ive tried entering http://localhost in both Safari and Firefox2 but I just get a message saying something like 'cannot connect' or 'no connection available'. I dont have the internet on my Mac which is why I wanted to use XAMPP in order to test my PHP scripts.

I've tried using an offline connection and still cant get it to work! Does anyone have a solution?

Dumb question, but have you started XAMPP through the Control Panel?

Make sure both personal file sharing and personal web sharing are turned off, then try http://localhost/xampp/

I have been having the same problem

Yesterday I typed in http://localhost/xampp/index.php and it worked fine and create my tables. Today I typed it in and it can up with.......

Not Found

The requested URL /xampp/index.php was not found on this server.

When I type in just http://localhost/ I get a page saying that Apache is working from the Apache webserver.

i'm using mac leopard if that makes any difference.
