Are you sure your URL is correct?

http://localhost.filename.php

doesn't look right to me :)

http://localhost

really points to the htdocs location of your xampp installation.

Lets assume that's

c:\xampp\htdocs

then your php file called filename.php needs to be in c:\xampp\htdocs

and you need to put in your browser address bar:\

http://localhost/filename.php

That should do something (as long as the php file is called filename.php .... :))

How did you create/save your filename.php? Which editor did you use?

Hi, I just installed Xampp and had some similar issues which were proving very frustrating!!

Are you sure Apache is running? On the Xampp control panel, when you check the 'Svc' box next to Apache and press 'Start', to the right of where it says Apache should display a green strip that says 'Running'. Just because the log window says 'Apache service started' doesn't mean it's running - this is what was happening to me!

Check out this post: http://www.netshinesoftware.com/compone ... AMPP.html/

It has a couple of clearly pretty successful suggestions for most people and they are all to do with other programmes and services using Port 80 and therefore blocking Apache (Skype seems to be the most common culprit). However, for me the post wasn't useful, but the additional comments afterwards. This allowed me to identify that a Windows Service - World Wide Web Publisher - was the guilty party and after turning that off Apache and Xampp worked first time.

I'm not very technical so am unlikely to be able to help further, but let us know how you get on - maybe someone else can move things on if you're still stuck after reading that?
Good Luck!

@scampsall

this message is a pretty good indicator that Apache is running:

@ dutuktok

The best test for PHP is simply to go to the XAMPP page - http://localhost/xampp

it it works - PHP and Apache are working

That usually makes basic PHP debugging a matter of:

Short Open Tags - usually a blank page or 'text containing code'. - not the case here

404 errors - Either the page is NOT really named what you thought, or was placed in the wrong place.

If the XAMMP Page worts, since the PHP syntax is OK - the problem virtually has to be with the filename or its location.

A good way to check is to step arounf the Windows Explorer (that can hide file extensions). Open a Command Prompt at c:\xampp\htdocs and take a directory of the folder - see what's in the folder

Good Luck
:)
