Hi,
I am a new web designer trying desparatly to sort out a testing server for my PHP / SQL sites.

I was told to download XAMP and use that, so I did. SQL runs fine but the Apache just stops running and has 'BUSY' under it so I thought it must be working, all I got on localhost was a blank white page.

I have switched off skype, that has not worked, looked at loads of forums for other ideas and nothing has corrected the problem.

I am on an XP home edition, I even tried shutting off the user accounts but the tabs was not there for me to disable.

I have spent hours trying to sort out now can anyone assist me as this is frustrating.

Thanks Chris
