    xampp and localhost

    I installed xampp but can't get files such as 'test.php' in htdocs to display in a browser. File sharing is enabled. Can anyone help?

    You need to enable "Web Sharing," not "File Sharing," in order for web pages to work.

    Edit: Nevermind... you're using a 3rd party Apache installation, so the Mac OS X "Sharing" controls probably have no control over your installation.

    Did you open the XAMPP control panel and start Apache, mySQL, and ProFTPD?

    Sure, it's already built into OS X (minus mySQL). You can download and install mySQL from mysql.com, and OS X already has an Apache 2 webserver and php built-in.
