OS: Win7 (service pack 1) 64 bit All updates are installed. Installed xampp. Able to connect to phpmyAmin and also xampp GUI. Add passwords to gui and mySQL. Went to run a site: localhost/mydevelopmentproject and only get a blank page. I remembered there is a conflicting port issue with Skype because it uses port 80 and port 443 as secondary listening ports. Xampp defaults to port 80 and 443. Easier to change xampp ports. So I Changed http.config (Listen to: 8080) etc etc. Changed http-ssl.config (Listen 4433) etc etc. But still I'm getting a blank page on localhost/mydevelopmentproject, when I should be getting a WP install screen. I'm surprised this is happening because I did a fresh install of my OS 10 or so days ago and apart from what I need, nothing else is running on the system. I had this setup and working before the fresh OS install and I followed the exact procedure. I'm at a lose to what is wrong. I'd appreciate some help if anyone has any suggestions?
