Greetings! First off let me thank the Apache Friends team for making this software package, it has all of the tools I need to make a good web server quickly. I ran into some problems and after a lot of Googling, I feel like I need more help.
I have a fresh install of Server 2008, fully updated. I installed C++ 2008 and 2012, installed .Net 4.0, and Xampp 1.7.7.
I installed all three services during the Xampp setup and rebooted. I noticed the checkmark next to Apache is not present and the is no green bar like on MySQL and filezilla (after the reboot the green bar next to filezilla is no longer present). I hit the checkmark and ok on the prompt and start the service.
localhost does not resolve, have not installed anything else (especially IIS and Skype)
Just after install.
Just after reboot.
Can anyone help me with this? I am at a loss at the moment. I just need to get apache to work
Thanks in advance.
Edit: saw a post in another thread about the beta control panel:
Edit2: Forgot to run it as admin.
