To me, that looks like a problem with the PHP extensions (or even PHP itself). What version of xampp are you running? Also, where did you install it?

This is when MySql and Apache is on looks normal with only Apache.

So c:\xampp is the directory that you installed to?
I'm not quite sure at this point....I could go on speculating all day I'm sure. It's possible that the user you are logged in as (of the user under which you are running apache/mysql) is not a local admin.

It's also possible that (even though you said the firewall is off) that something is still blocking the connection. It's hard to make that call though without being in front of the machine.

What browser are you trying to view the security pages in by the way?

You may try to use 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost and see if that makes a difference also.

Someone else may be able to offer some additional insight....as I am far from an expert on xampp.

Are the any serious problems or only the one white screen?

The security message is quite nonsense and have been discussed many times in this forum. Simply ignored it. It only means, that your mysql server can be accessed via port 3306, thats all. You *could* configure mysql not to use tcpip but sockets (a local pipe) instead - but anyway, this is really NOT a securitiy issue, simply the message is annoying.

Pretty stupid.

Delete Xampp from your pc and install the related software tools manually by yourself. Forget Xampp.

Dude what's wrong with you ? Some people can't just install each piece of software individually and have a server up and running within 5 minutes. I know when I "1st tried" it was a nightmare and then when I came across xampp it was like xmas & new year rolled in one. So less of the ignorance and maybe help the users out if your such an expert on these matters. And yes I agree xampp needs a tiny bit of work but I have no doubt that the next editions of xampp will be even better and by that I mean Standard apache latest stable edition with only php5 and with MySQL 5.0.51b and then add all the extras you get now like eaccelarator, perl, tomcat and then add a few bonusus like mod_security & ioncube loaders. but hey thats just me and I still think what we have now is good, just could be and will be better. ok that's it, vented and now breathe :roll:

EDIT: @Thread Starter --> As for your problem m8 I suggest starting again, getting the latest xampp installer and install to (*) c:/xampp but not before making sure ALL traces of any previous xampp installations have been deleted and that includes any Registry entries for MySQL (You should/maybe find 2 entries" delete them after uninstalling xampp and any services you installed when you installed xampp and then restart your computer.

(*) Just a tip to m8 I'd make a partition just for xampp and call it server or whatever, that way your server and all files todo with are not on your local c drive therefore making your system alot more secure.
