XAMPP for MacOS X started.
but when I viewed it with my safari, it showed that:
You don't have permission to access / on this server.
It could be that Safari is not really compatible. I hadn't problems while using Safari and Xampp, but now I use Firefox instead, because I want to use a CMS and one of them had in it's manual that the configuration is not working with Safari. Just try another alternate browser and see if it works there.
Double check your passwords - compare how you set up Xampp security with the the password thread. Then from the Safari menu reset Safari and restart Xampp. If you have been monkeying around with settings and don't remember all that you did, then uninstall Xampp from the command line and re-install according to the password thread.
Xampp runs well on Leopard with firefox and safari.
