This is in some ways a trivial problem but as I can't work out why its happening I'm concerned it might have an effect on other aspects on my installation.
I have just made a fresh install of XAMPP version 1.8.2. on Windows 7. I had to change the port numbers as 80 wasn't working but with the new ports the installation displays simple pages OK. I ran some test pages to check the display, including the applications.html file provided with the installation... http://localhost:8080/applications.html. However for some reason this page will not display and I get a 'web page not available message'. The odd thing is that if rename the page to say 'application.html' or 'applicationx.html' or 'applicationss.html' it works fine. It seems that XAMPP just objects to this one name 'applications.html'. Any ideas why this should be and whether it has implications for other file names?
Thanks. Rob Wheeler
