Securing XAMPP

Postby brduran » 14. June 2008 01:52

In XAMPP index page I click on Security and it tells me that XAMPP pages are accessible by network for everyone, and that to fix it simply use

=> http://localhost/security/xamppsecurity.php <= [allowed only for localhost]

But it doesn't say how. How?

Thank you.

Click on the link and get taken to the "Security console MySQL & XAMPP directory protection" page. Use the "XAMPP DIRECTORY PROTECTION (.htaccess)" section. This helps you set .htaccess users and their passwords for the xampp directories.

Search this forum for and refer to http://httpd.apache.org/ about htaccess.

But of course, the easy ones bite you in the a..

Instead of clicking on the link I went and opened the file itself, didn't get far.

Got it now, thanks.
