I downloaded and installed XAMPP server on my Windows. I think it installed well. Apache and MySQL were running.
But whenever I want to navigate my PHP files the browser displays the error message – Server not found or something like that. How can I get rid from this problem?
Thanks in advance
Problem with XAMPP server for PHP
The first step toward solving this issue will be to go to the http://localhost/ folder name, or locate the file name that you want to access. It could be something like index.php file of the website you are testing.
An alternative solution will be to stop all of the services, and as well solve the “Another daemon is already running” issue.
The following commands will help you solve the issue
sudo opt/lampp/lampp stop
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop
sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop
You can also use the following instead of the above:
sudo service apache2 stop
sudo service mysql stop
After that you have done that you can start again the xampp services as follows:
sudo opt/lampp/lampp start
After that there should be no problems while opening:
