    How do I do the following step on wordpress?

    I'm following a tutorial on how to create a worpress theme

    http://geeksaresexy.blogspot.com/200...lly-under.html

    Iím stuck on the step 4- Open your browser and go to this address: http://localhost/. From the menu on the left column, choose your preferred language.

    I have installed XAMPP and I am running apache and MySQL, I have been stumped on this bit for ages. Nothing shows up when I open http://localhost/. what am I doing wrong?

    Try using http://127.0.0.1/
    If this does not work check that your anti virus program is no blocking port 80. Skype, if used, must be turned off.

    Please make sure that you have added the entry in your hosts file as shown below:

    127.0.0.1 localhost

    The hosts file is located at your Windows directory/system32/drivers/etc/hosts.
