Server error!

Postby Bosman » 15. July 2006 09:02

I installed the latest version on my XP machine. (Downloaded and extracted to Program Files Diectory. Then I ran setup-xampp.bat. Now, when I try to access /localhost/ via Firefox, I get a 500 error. The text in the error log is:

[Sat Jul 15 09:35:41 2006] [alert] [client 127.0.0.1] C:/Program Files/xampp/htdocs/xampp/.htaccess: Invalid file path C:\\Program FilesC:\\Program FilesC:\\Program FilesC:\\Program Files\\xampp\\security\\xampp.users
[Sat Jul 15 09:39:46 2006] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (OS 2)The system cannot find the file specified. : Could not open password file: C:/Program Files/xampp/security/xampp.users
[Sat Jul 15 09:39:49 2006] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (OS 2)The system cannot find the file specified. : Could not open password file: C:/Program Files/xampp/security/xampp.users

The file referred to does not exist - is it created by the program? Can anyone help me overcome this problem, please.

I use the setup for development purposes only on a local machine.

I guess you have tried internet explorer too?

If so:

I would uninstall it making sure you answer yes each time to remove everything including htdocs folder and mysql.

Then run install again. Although it shouldn't matter, run the installer from the root directory c:\

Try that.

[Sat Jul 15 09:35:41 2006] [alert] [client 127.0.0.1] C:/Program Files/xampp/htdocs/xampp/.htaccess: Invalid file path C:\\Program FilesC:\\Program FilesC:\\Program FilesC:\\Program Files\\xampp\\security\\xampp.users

Delete the .htaccess file completely. It will be created again if and when it is needed.

Izzy, why has this invalid path been created?

Just out of interest?

Thanks gentlemen!

I read, I did, and now it works!

It seems it is better to extract from the root directory, and to reboot, often!

No idea, I could only guess. You should ask the original poster that question.

Thanks again, Wooshman,

The problem is solved, except that IE gives me a
Access forbidden
error. It would be nice to resolve this, but not critical.

chech the access.log and error.log to see what its doing.

an access forbiden is a 403 error, it will certianly be in the logs. Apache supports the BrowserMatch Directive. This can be in the .htaccess files or in the httpd.conf its self. Make sure that IE isnt getting snubed.. Not taht i would. I hate IE anyway, and find it kinda humorus.
