How should I start xampp?

Postby spax » 14. February 2006 00:28

Does my local machine need to be connected to the internet for xampp to function?
I ask because when I installed it and first tried to load it, my firewall asked for permissions for Apache and MySql to access the internet and to act as servers. I denied permissions and MySql wouldn't work, so then I allowed it and now everything works fine.

Can anyone put me straight, please?

You dont need to be connected to the internet, but the Apache and mySQL are network-Server. So when you try to connect to mySQL-Server, you (or the programs) have to do this over 127.0.0.1. This goes over your ethernet-adapter (network-card). For the firewall this is "outside" even if its never leaving your computer
