I've just installed a wamp server on my computer, OS Windows XP w/ SP2. When I try to connect to "localhost" or 127.0.0.1, I only get the message that connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server". I have no problem connecting to a server outside my PC.
I should be grateful for a little help. I should also say that I'm completely new to all this so I would really appreciate an answer without too much technical talk.
Kind regards,
Gloria

Is the server service running?

Could be a firewall.

Even though I have no problem connecting to my website hosted away from my computer?

Even then. Firewall blocks are application specific.

Thank you for your input. I think I'll just forget about this for the time being. Too many other things to sort out first.
Thanks again for trying to help.
