Problem with Accidental Shutdown

Postby szantovitch » 20. December 2006 01:50

I had XAMPP running peachily for a few weeks, and then a cat happened to step on my surge protector's on/off switch.

When I got everything back on, Xampp's silly control panel insists on popping up anytime someone goes to the main page, EVEN THOUGH there is no index.html file (which I had already deleted and replaced with my own)!

I honestly don't know how to stop this and was hoping one of you could help out.

Thanks,

Christine

To clarify, I already had Xampp installed and working fine until there was an accidental shut-down caused by a cat. :P

Steps to problem:

  1. Turn Computer on.
  2. Start XAMPP Control Panel as normal.
  3. Go to http://localhost

This is what pops up ( http://localhost/xampp ):

Welcome to XAMPP for Windows Version 1.5.5!
Congratulations:
You successfully installed XAMPP on this system!
Now you can start using Apache and Co. Firstly you should try »Status« on the left navigation to make sure everything works fine.

For OpenSSL support please use the test certificate with https://127.0.0.1 or https://localhost

And very important! Big thanks for help and support to Carsten, Nemesis, KriS, Boppy, Pc-Dummy and all other friends of XAMPP!

Good luck, Kay Vogelgesang + Kai 'Oswald' Seidler

Again, I had already replaced the index.html file that XAMPP gives normally and deleted it. It no longer exists on my system.

Thanks,
Christine

clear Browser-Cache !

I had already replaced the index.html file that XAMPP gives normally and deleted it

The XAMPP search at first for index.php

Will you, that xampp look at first for index.html
you must edit the httpd.conf
Code: Select all
DirectoryIndex index.php index.php4 index.php3 index.cgi index.pl index.html index.htm index.shtml index.phtml


bring the notice of "index.html" befor "index.php"
save, restart apache
