XAMPP set up - cannot see localhost

Postby Donna5dcp » 12. September 2006 09:08

I brought to work with me the xampp-win32-1.5 3a-installer. I put it in a directory below the C Drive, ran it and have kept all of the default settings. Apache resides in C:/Program Files/xampp
I have not touched the hosts file or any conf files.
My explorer annoyingly keeps telling me that "Web Page unavailable while offline" and prompts me to click "Connnect" or "Stay Offline" if I click either of these I still get the Explorer page "Web page unavailable off line"

Could someone start me off please?
TIA

SOLVED!

I went to http://localhost and it defaulted to http://localhost/xampp which is in German??? Could you tell me why?

For everyones records - I hadnt set up PHP to configure it (as per book WROX 0-7645-7966-5) so test.php wouldnt work.

The problem was IE was looking for http://www.msn.com by default. You need to change this is your internet setting to look for about:blank. Accept all the connection prompts, keep trying to connect....
It gets there
TIA
