  1. type http://localhost/ to test xampp

  2. We have to change the debugger..
    To do this, find the php.ini file, in your system you might not see the extension, so it will be the php configuration file.

    In the php.ini file,
    Press Ctrl+F to find, then..
    1. Look for the line which has "php_xdebug.dll". Remove the ";" in front of the line to enable it.
    2. Look for xdebug.remote_enable = 1 then also remove the ";" in front of the line, then change the "0" to "1"
    3. Ctrl+S to save the changes you have made.
    4. Restart your XAMPP
