Ok, I did the installation and it went fine. It should be good to use with Vista 64, just make sure you disable UAC before you install it.

Now I did encounter a rather odd problem that doesn't directly effect your server, but if there's no solution, you will need to manually configure the settings for security.

After I installed it and everything installed just fine, I started Apache and MySQL, then went to http://localhost and went into XAMPP control menu.
Everything in there works except when I click on "Security". A new browser window pops up and it says this:

Code: Select all
Acess Forbidden!

You don't have permission to access the requested object.  It is either read-protected or not readable by the server.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

Error 403



This isn't a huge problem and can be configured other ways, but it's very odd as I haven't seen this happen before.

Search the forum as this security issue is already sorted - you need to tweak a conf file.

Yeah, I tried it on Vista Ultimate 32-bit and 64-bit and realized it's a common problem. I found the solution in this post:
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=32503&p=131809&hilit=security+doesn%27t+work+in+Vista#p131519

Which states:
Code: Select all
1) open the file "\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-xampp.conf" in a texteditor
2) replace "Allow from localhost" with "Allow from 127.0.0.1" (2 times)
3) save the file
4) restart Apache
