What is wrong, that does not work. You *MUST NOT* double click connect.php in an File Explorer or similar, you MUST apply a valid URL to the browser, in this case it is http://localhost/connect.php
(you may simply click on that link).

Of course not, because with file:// protocoll the browser simply opens the file for reading directly, but what you need is Apache(!!!) to open the file and send it to the browser. And for Apache you need the protocoll http and the hostname (i.e. Servername) is "localhost", when it is running locally (on the same PC as the client i.e. the browser). Keep in mind, that usually you need TWO PCs for that scenario, a Server and a Client. In this special case the Server is actually the same hardware as the client, but you need to address the Server in order to trigger Apache.
