Windows 7: Localhost not working

03 Jun 2010   #21

Windows 7
The problem is Skype.. localhost

This is correct but port 80 is the issue.

Skype uses port 80 so try shutting down Skype and
retry localhost in your browser.

It worked for me when everything else failed. - Total Web Solutions Company Specializing in Flash, PHP, CSS, Wordpress, and E-commerce
