(another) novice trying to get started with xampp 0.9 ...

Postby ruud00000 » 26. September 2003 14:24

Hello there,

I tried to install XAMPP 0.9 under Windows XP Professional, but all I get is an MSDOS screen popping up for a short while and than disappearing again, not leaving a (visible) trace of Apache.

When I type http://localhost in Internet Explorer I land on the XP serverpage (ISS). When I type http://127.0.0.1 I'm asked to type a username and password but I have no idea what username to use there?

Help? :?

Hi ruud00000!

Under normal circumstances you can only run Apache or IIS. Not both at the same time. So if you want to run XAMPP please stop your IIS!

I didn't expect an answer so quickly.

And I certainly didn't expect it was going to be simple (for me...) to solve.

After deinstalling IIS, Apache simply worked!?

Thanks!

Hello,

I was using phpdev423 and wanted to try out xampp. I'm very familiar with how phpdev works, but I'm embarassed to say I can't even get http://localhost to work with xampp. :oops:

I uninstalled and stopped and disabled all services (apache, monitor, etc) associated with phpdev423) I downloaded the zip. I extracted it to C:\xampp. I ran the setup_xampp.bat. (Beautiful program btw)

Ok, so all looked fine from there. I opened my web browser and went to http://localhost and couldn't be found. Kinda stuck now. Any advice?

Oh, and I'm running IIS at http://localhost:8080/ to make it even more fun. :D

Did you start Apache with apache_start.bat? Any error messages during start shown?

No error messages (I'm assuming since the dos window closed after start) but no localhost. :cry:

Ok, I just checked my Task Manager and Apache isn't running. So, hum, let me re-unzip and start over and then see if Apache fires up.

All right. When all else fails, start over. So I did. I re-unzipped the file. And then moved everything to c:\xampp, ran the installer, started apache. Good there. Next I go to a command prompt and ping localhost. Yeah! Comes back with packets ok. :D

Next, I go to web browser and type in http://localhost and nothing again - not found. Hummm? Not sure what to do now? Any suggestions?

ping don't shows you what services on a remote or local machine runs. It's only for testing, that the pinged adresse are reachable.

You started apache.... after that, there are two Apache.exe Tasks?
I hope for you, that you didn't installed any buggy AV or FW Software! :)

And another hint: On some systems localhost doesn't work. Please try http://127.0.0.1.

Which browser do you use? If IE please try Mozilla/Firebird!

IE? Never! I'm using Opera 7.21 right now, but I've got Mozilla 1.5 installed. I'll give tha a try, with the 127.0.0.1. I'll try the installer too, I didn't do that part.

Thanks for all your help!
