Safari can't find localhost

Postby titotito » 06. August 2010 08:10

Iam a beginner, completely new to
Apache using Mac OS version 10.4.11 using Safari browser.
After down loading XAMPP for Mac OS x 1.7.3,2010/03/04 then dragging the XAMPP folder into the application folder then typing on a new window http://local host this appears “Safari can’t connect to server. Safari can’t open the page https://localhost/ because Safari can’t connect to the server “localhost”.
Will XAMPP for Mac 1.7.3 Patch work? How do you install it?

First you have to start up Apache by using the XAMPP Control App found in the XAMPP folder in Applications folder

In your browser type in the word: localhost or
and press the return key and you should get the XMAPP "home" screen.

Does that work for you?
