Can not get site live-- real bind

Postby bigjules » 27. October 2005 19:19

I have a mambo site, it works fine in localhost mode. Xampp is running and there are no conflicts. When you go to my URL, I got a /xampp login screen and not the website.

I had just changed the default settings in xampp for htaccess and mysql, but I don't really understand apache or xampp enough here. The mambo site is correctly placed in htdocs.

The apache port is 80, I made no other changes to phpmyadmin or apache. Can anyone help guide me or show me a forum post that explains what steps to take to figure out if I need to change a setting in phpmyadmin or apache?

Once everythign gets fwd with the DNS servers and name servers, I thought your webpage should come up, but instead, I'm getting the Xampp login.

Let me know what report or piece of info I need to include in this report to someone who can help.

PS- are there are other security issues I should know before I host this page to friends to test it?
Thanks

I'm in a real bind

Setup VirtualHost its makes everthing so much easier and if your on a Dynamic IP address (Cable, DSL, Dial Up) you can use www.dyndns.org to assign names to your ip address.

My xampp is installed in C:\
So to edit my httpd.conf I need to go to C:\xampp\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf

at the very bottom it shows you how to setup virtualhosts.
I use C:\www\ for my websites
My VirtualHost Looks like this:
Code: Select all
NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot C:/www/thegamerslounge
    ServerName thegamerslounge.game-host.org
    ServerAlias www.thegamerslounge.game-host.org
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot C:/www/gamersworld
    ServerName gamersworld.game-host.org
    ServerAlias www.gamersworld.game-host.org
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot C:/www/personal
    ServerName thewiccanslounge.blogdns.org
    ServerAlias www.thewiccanslounge.blogdns.org
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot C:/xampp/xampp/htdocs
    ServerName localhost
</VirtualHost>
