Control Panel Question

Postby Smackie » 09. September 2007 06:03

This might be a weird question to ask I been using Xampp for years and loving it :).. but recently i moved my xampp to a different computer that will only be used as a server for all my sites i have built and currently using as a hosting site.. now i have a friend that helps me keep it up to date he lives a few states away and well we can't get the ftp to work correctly sometimes it just doesn't want to stay connected..

so i been thinking is there a possiblitly there is away to create like a control panel that will let him and me login to to like change things like passwords for database files and stuff? is that a possiblity?


Thank you

Just did a Google for webmin for windows and found some interesting reading.

Also might be worth taking ZPanel Project for a test drive and see if it has what you need.
A new version 3, that you get to from the New - Blog link on their menu bar, will be released soon and promises to be much more feature rich than the current version ZPanel v2.5b11.

=================================================
Take a look at the new DeskTopXampp launch control for XAMPP and XAMPPlite (DTX.exe)

I highly recommend DTX.

What is the document root directory of your web site that you have put the subdirectory that contains the ZPanel in?
usually it would be in xampp\htdocs\websitefiles\zp\ the directory zp directory can be your choice and would be defined when installing ZPanel.

Http:\\localhost\websitefiles\zp
would open the ZPanel index page and Apache would know where to find those files when asked for them from within your browser as the htdocs directory is the default Document Root.
All files and directories in the htdocs directory are accessible and will be served by Apache when called by your browser.

If you are using a domain name for your web site then you would put the ZPanel files directory (zp perhaps) into the directory that contains your web site.
http://domain.com/zp
would load the ZPanel index page.

The README.htm in the ZPanel archive give some hints for placement.
BTW the php.ini file mentioned is in xampp\apache\bin\php.ini file and is the default php.ini file used by the Apache server.

Configuring ZPanel after installation will give ZPanel most of the information about your servers it requires and on a default XAMPP installation you should not need to change any server configuration files except for those mention in the ZPanel README file.

For a bit of a tutorial on placing your web site within the XAMPP default's web tree (htdocs) see this recent post:
http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?t=26355

I can only guess really as you only gave a very small bit of info for me to work with.
