Can I get pretty permalinks for Wordpress installation with using Xampp lite and AmpStart?

According to http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/usb/ it says Xampp Lite cannot get pretty permalinks.

I have not tested wordpress yet as I could not download and extract it.
I think XAMPP can support permalink. You must comment out the line
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
in XAMPP\apache\httpd.conf
Try to add the line
RewriteEngine On
if needed.

Hi lyntuan,



EDIT [ It works fine now but without using AMPStart ]

P.S: After a lot of testing, I can confirm that the problem is the XAMPP not able to allow for custom permalink structure. I have been able to go to the internal URLs after I change the permalink structure to default...which means the "ugly" permalinks.

Edit - Still need testing for Wordpress. XAMPP works - but for the default version need to configure the original httpd.conf file by removing the # like as said earlier.

Not sure how to do with AmppStart :idea:

The DeskTopXampp launch control for XAMPP and XAMPPlite (DTX.exe)
is available here:

I highly recommend DTX.

Any notes on that?

What version of ampstart.exe does your post refer?

I find it hard to believe the file is infected but what is believable is that certain anti-virus software are prone to giving false positives when they have a suspicion rather than a known issue with a file.

Many anti-virus scanners add weight to a suspicion when they detect that the file is a self modifying executable as in the case of ampstart.exe.
Note
The software's authors maybe the ones to answer why the need for this file to be self modifying and to perceivably irritate some scanners to display cautions and warnings.
/Note

Scanners then turn this detection weight into either the closest Worm variant or mark the file as suspicious.


EDIT - 09/20/07 ******
This link below has expired but if you download to your PC the latest ampstart.exe and then visit http://www.virustotal.com/ you will see that now 8 out of 35 (25%) scanners detected various versions of MalWare some of which are reported as being related to a self modifying exe or a compressed exe file which can only be addressed by the files authors.
You only need just 1 negative anti-virus result to sow the seeds of suspicion and here we have 8 scanners of which major players like McAfee (Worm) and AVG (BackDoor) have declared the file to contain MalWare.

It is now up to the individual whether to trust a suspicious file or not.

Dead link now - Click on the link below to see a single file online scanner report using multiple scanner sources:
File AMPstart_1.2.1.8.zip received on 09.19.2007 03:49:09 (CET)
Current status: finished
Result: 7/32 (21.88%)

/EDIT



So it would always appear to be a safe bet to check out the suspicious file with as many quality online file scanning services as you deem to be comfortable with.

One of the many advantages of this double checking method is you can be assured of the very latest detection methods and lists, often only a few hours old.

These Google search results have many of the top anti-virus software developers that provide an online file scanning facility.

This site uses several of the leading anti-virus companies to do multiple scans all at once with a report feature.
http://virusscan.jotti.org/

I scanned version 1.2.1.8 (fresh download from the developers site) with F-Prot and a couple of online services.
The results in all scans was File OK no Virus/Worms/Trojans or indeed any malware of any description.

If, after you have double checked your file and hopefully found it to be also OK by the majority, then you might like to say so in another reply as it would then prompt others to do the right thing and check the file (indeed all downloaded files) to their level of confidence and satisfaction.

Hi,

AMPstart is not a self modifying executable file. It is compressed executable file. I tested AMPstart with Kaspersky 7.0, it's vivus free.

Ampstart and SdBot3 Trojan

Postby lascasas » 22. September 2007 03:34

I had been using Ampstart for a while with no problems. I then started using the Pidgin IRC client, and when I attempted to start Ampstart, AVG Free flagged a trojan:

Trojan horse IRC/BackDoor.SdBot3.SFO

Needless to say, highly suspicious...

I am surprised that lascasas registered a new account in order to post only this message. You are new user of Apache friends forum, but you had been using Ampstart for a while ???
Needless to say, highly suspicious... I think you don't know what AMPstart is or you have a bad purpose!
I don't care, but you can post an original picture (not modified) of AVG's warning, or post your complain to manufactory of your LCD... :)

Ampstart and trojan

Postby lascasas » 23. September 2007 03:36

Your software has been flagged by two different virus scanners as having a trojan. A clean scan from Kaspersky may only mean that they haven't yet identified it.

If you are a responsible developer and your software is clean, you would contact McAfee and AVG and find out why they have identified a trojan in Ampstart. Then you need to post official word from them in these forums, stating that it was in fact a mistake.

No one should use your software until you do that.

.

Don't be stupid! There are hundred of antivirus softwares in the world. Many of them don't work correctly.
I already used AVG, McAfee, PCilline, Norton, BitDefender antivirus software and now I am using the best :)

AMPstart is a useful and free software. And it's virus free, Kaspersky said. :)

Note: I used PEcompact http://www.bitsum.com/ to compress AMPstart, maybe some antivirus softwares misunderstood PEcompact :)
