    If it says cannot connect, this is not a PHP problem but an httpd problem. Is the apache httpd service running?

    The word 'oops' implies a non-standard error. Are you getting a 404 error? What happens when you go to your web site without specifying any page? Where is your php page with respect to DocRoot?

    Do one of the following successfully bring you to some kind of page in your htdocs directory? (Probably an index.html by default, unless you redefined such in your apache config...)

    http://localhost/

    surely on windows 7, IIS should be on by default? having said that i would just install LAMP/WAMP
