This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

  • Have you made sure that your index.html page isn't blank? If you get a literally blank page, it means that the server is taking connections, and might just be serving you an empty file.
  • If you are using PHP for your index.php file, make sure that the module is enabled in httpd.conf (if it's split over several files, look for one mentioning modules.)
  • If there are any installation .bat files in the installation directory, try running them again.

If you get an error page when you connect, not a blank page, make sure that your firewall isn't blocking the server.
