Cannot access to my localhost websites

Postby cascade27 » 13. March 2010 00:20

I'm using xampp 1.7.1 and I have a few localhost websites. When I enter http://localhost in my browser, I get a xampp welcome page with the following message:

"Welcome to XAMPP for Windows Version 1.7.1 !
Congratulations:
You have successfully installed XAMPP on this system!

However, when I go to my test site where Joomla 1.5.15 is installed (e.g. http://localhost/test001/), I get an error "Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL".

When I go to a regular html site, I get an error "Restricted access".

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

I'm getting the same problem. Although I'm using XAMPP 1.7.3 (same Joomla build).

Here's hoping someone can solve our problem!

Hi

I solved my problem.

In short, after multiple reloads of XAMPP and Joomla of course, not putting a password in the database configuration page of Joomla got me past the problem. (Which makes sense I discovered becuase my configuration of MYSQL on my localhost doesn't have/need a password.)

Hope it helps you cascade27.
