Hi guys, so i wasn't sure which forum to ask this but I hope this is the right place. Anyway, I just reinstalled a Xampp on my laptop, Im using windows 8. Now, I'm trying to load my site example: localhost/site/home.php and it is taking forever. I really have no idea what to do.
It was fine yesterday and then today this happened so i uninstalled and reinstalled. that didn't help. its still taking forever.
before i uninstalling i tried reconfiguring the hosts file, httpd.conf file and even the BFE services as suggested by : this person on SO but instead of working the site wouldn't even load at all.
also, i just checked the status on 127.0.0.1 and mysql database is listed as deactivated now that is probably the reason too. how do i activate it?
Someone please help me. im just trying to finish up this project for my internship. TIA
