Where is Localhost?

Postby SeanF » 04. February 2021 13:39

Hi:
I have been using XAMPP for about the last seven years on a 2013 MacBook Pro Retina. So... that tells you the last time I needed to load XAMPP..

I recently upgraded the computer with a new 1Tb SSD and have loaded a new install of XAMPP. It seemed to load fine but I can't find /localhost.

The last installation:
  • created a folder in "Applications" called "XAMPP"
  • Inside that folder was another called "htdocs"
  • any web pages or site structure was copied to htdocs
  • htdocs was the root level for http://localhost

In this installation:
  • "XAMPP" in "Applications" is an application, not a folder
  • I can't seem to find "htdocs" anywhere
  • Navigating to "localhost" in a browser returns a "Can't connect to the server" error
  • The XAMPP application is showing an IP address of "192.168.64.2"
  • Navigating to 192.168.64.2 in a browser takes me to the XAMPP welcome page but it is not clear to me where that is
So:
What's changed?
What am I missing?
Did I miss a step?

Thanks!

OH... NEVER MIND.

I just realized, I accidentally installed the "VM" version... deleted that and installed the "normal" version and all is as expected!

Sorry for the false alarm!
