the .php files are executed by the browser but php code is not parsed
i have tried to change httpd.conf file but then apache fails to start
what should be done to correct this problem? please guide me

check whether "IIS Admin" service is running. If its running then you have to change the port number for Apache.

Or you can stop the service by.. goto Run --> services.msc

Find the service "IIS Admin" right click and "Stop".
Now try running "Apache" from Xampp. PHP files must parse now :)

If oracle is installed then also XAMPP doesn't work.
Best way is check that some other application is not using the same port that is 80.

use netstat -an command at command prompt to check all ports being used by other applications.

if some other application is using the same port then edit httpd.conf file and change port from 80 to something else.

Access forbidden!

New XAMPP security concept:
Access to the requested directory is only available from the local network.
This setting can be configured in the file "httpd-xampp.conf".

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
