You also want to make sure that your database is running before you try to setup the actual website. It needs to be able to access the database in order to save user info generated by the webpage.Hello, I'm in a dilemma at the moment. I wanted to use this website on my server, but I'm not exactly sure how to set it up. I've changed the files in the htdocs, but when I start Apache it tried to connect to 127.0.0.1 and apparently cannot, so then it crashes saying "Press any key to continue...". I'm not sure what I'm doing. Do I need Xampp installed or am I just completely forgetting something? I believe it's just because of the IP that Apache is attempting to connect to as I have all my ports forwarded and the server is accessible publically, but I don't know how to change the bound IP. Any help is greatly appreciated!
