Can't open/access XAMPP Security Console (1.7.0)

Postby dilbert » 05. January 2009 20:51

I have successfully installed XAMPP.
XAMPP Controle Panel - OK
localhost - OK (Can access)
Services - Up and running (Apache, MySql)

When using the link "Security" in the XAMPP window in my browser i reach a new page which says
Error 404
Access denied. You don't have the.......

All other links in the "localhost" is fully functioning.

OS - Windows XP Pro SP3

What can I do/should do to be able to access the "XAMPP Security Console"?

I wish people would have a quick look at the forums already made topics because you have asked a question that has been asked And Answered like a million times this week.

You need to do this :-

1) open the file "\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-xampp.conf" in a text editor
2) replace "Allow from localhost" with "Allow from 127.0.0.1" (2 times)
3) save the file
4) restart Apache

Try using the search feature in future thank you......

I'm not being funny with you but are you sure you searched this forum ? because I can see the answer to your problem on the first 3 pages of topics numerous times. And even via search I get the results I want. *sigh*

Did you try the fix I posted for you anyway ?
