ok, i have followed the directions given to me with the joomla/apache installs and for some reason when i enter http://localhost/ in blank browser i get a cannot display site page. i would like to setup a local host but i keep running into dead-ends can anyone provide an easier way to set up.
win xp, have xampp installed, apache 2.2, main reason for this is i want to use the joomla pkg for designing backend site. i just wish there was another way to run it(install it) easier for use like you would any other program.
I know this sounds incredibly tech supporty, but make sure the program starts the server. I know it took me a few tries before I realized that wamp doesn't automatically start the server just because the program is running.
