Hi, Im having some hassles with phpdev. I install it then run the bat file for xp, which starts apache etc and opens the browser at localhost. It cant see the localhost (ie tries to go online). i have checked the httpd.conf file the documentroot etc point to a valid directory as it should as they are set by the installation. Can someone give me a 'check list' of things to try and solve this problem? Thanks.

If I run the XP bat file my browser is started at localhost but a bit too soon I think because I get the "The page cannot be displayed" error. In my case I just have to hit the refresh button to see the correct localhost page...

Well technically that IE want's to go "online" is actually quite correct... Even if online happens to be locally on your computer.
What localhost is is really sort of a "local domain", meaning that the computer loops back from localhost to 127.0.0.1

Don't know if you are on dialup or not, but try to allow IE to go online, it should loop back "inside" your computer and not needing to call up an outside line.

Otherwise, yes "page not found" is quite common for me as well, that's because localhost is opened before the server is ready.

this could also be a proxy problem - do you have proxies configured for your IE?
If so, is 'do not use proxy for local addresses' turned on? (don't know what the actual text on the checkbox in english is. sorry).

So long,
