Updating apache server live
You should be able to see the default Apache test page.
By default, your pages should be placed in the "C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs" folder for Apache 2.0 and the "C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs" folder for Apache 2.2.
Instructions for changing the port used by Apache Server are found here.
1) Click on Port-Check to see if any other applications or services are using port 80.
If the download does not start in a few seconds, click on the direct download link: 3) Select to either Save the file or to Run it directly over the Internet.
Saving allows you to uninstall and reinstall if necessary: 4) Enter the location to extract XAMPP into. I entered my D:\ drive because I have more space there.

Simply point your RSS feed reader or a browser that supports RSS feeds at https://XAMPP 1.7.7 (released in Septemeber 2011) is the latest version.I had no problem with the install and most things work just fine, however, there are many little things that require “expert” tinkering to get it working right (it is much stricter on PHP errors than 1.7.3 is – a flag change to fix that).You can read more about how to subscribe to RSS site feeds from my RSS FAQ. Please do not reproduce or distribute this article in whole or part, in any form.
These instructions are for installing XAMPP 1.7.3 on Windows XP, Service Pack 3. Because of this, I cannot recommend it to someone just looking for a straightforward install with minimal tinkering.
This article deals with how you can set up and configure Apache 2 on your own computer so that you can test your scripts and site.
