I have installed xampp and used it for several tasks so I know the installation should be good. I started it and mySQL from the xampp control panel, both show as running,firewall allowing xampp, but when I browse to http://localhost I get this:
       Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost. I am a newbie at this any advice?
