I have downloaded the non install version of XAMPP since I want to use this on my usb key. I have everything installed(apache,PHP5,mysql) the traditional way on my computer(I installed them one by one, I did not use XAMPP).
However at school we don’t have all this stuff and I would like to work on it on school so that’s why I am trying to get this to work.
Ok now you know why I am doing this here are some questions I have.
When I go to xampp the first thing I did was click the setup_xampp.bat to set it up(If I put this folder on my usb key will I have to do this every time I load into a new computer?)
When I clicked on the setup and it was done doing its thing I went to xampp-control to start apache and mysql. However when I went to http://127.0.0.1/ or http://localhost I would get a error message:
Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost.
* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
Same message for http://127.0.0.1/ expect it said http://127.0.0.1/ instead of local host.
However when I go and click apache_start.bat and the batch loads up and then I go to
http://127.0.0.1/ or http://localhost I can access it no problem. So I don’t know what the problem is here and I rather have the control panel since I don’t like having to keep the batch file open(it gets in my way).
I have set a password up so when you try to http://127.0.0.1/ or http://localhost that you have to use a password to access this.
But when I added some test php files and I wanted to run http://localhost/FolderNameHere I could access this no problem without a use of a password.
So is that how it should be? I would think their should be a password to access you files where your going to run it.
I went to the security tab to check my stuff and I have a couple unknowns and unsecured ones and I am not sure how to make them all secure.
I have a couple status controls disabled and I would love to get them all enabled too but not sure how to do that.
Finally I don’t know how to set up phpMyadmin Like when I installed my stuff on my computer (the traditional way) I used a program called Navicat and then when I needed to my database stuff I made a connection file and crap to this and I can’t remember if I actually changed anything in the apache or php files to link to the program but I don’t think I did.
The only time I used phpMyadmin was when I was using a web hosting site but that gave me options to make a database,an account and stuff.
I just get when I click on phpMyadmin is this:
I hope you guys can help me!
