I recently “refreshed” Windows 10. It re-installed Windows, but did not erase my personal files, such as my “Websites” folder for DesktopServer. However, it did erase all my applications. I had to re-install Desktop Server.
Now that everything is re-installed, when I open DesktopServer, it starts ok. It finds “localhost”. But when I go to “localhost”, no development websites are listed.
I have not changed my file structure. I still have one development website in the default location:
I don’t understand why DesktopServer doesn’t see that I have a development website where it should be.
Even when I go to localhost->Tools->PHPMyAdmin the database for my website is still there.
Also, the “Sites” button on DesktopServer is greyed out, as if there are no sites.
DesktopServer is made of three components, the /xampplite folder (containing the application and the databases), the folder where you selected to have all your websites files stored and the preferences file.
