Apache problems

Postby adokilla » 27. February 2009 20:22

Hello everyone, I have downloaded the 1.7.0 version of xampp everything went well in the installation. i started the xampp it tells me that it cannot access the security so i change it to so am able to see the security site. Now the problem am having is that i cant access myphpadmin it tells me Cannot load mysql extension. Please check your PHP configuration.
and i can't see any mysql settings or apache directory that i can change my passwords and as well the Status of the unsecure areas. The only unsecure area that is showing is

Security Check

These XAMPP pages are accessible by network for everyone UNSECURED
Every XAMPP demo page you are right now looking at is accessible for everyone over network. Everyone who knows your IP address can see these pages.

The rest is blank and with info of ports and the link for
http://localhost/security/xamppsecurity.php Is missing any help would be great appreciated

Thank you.

Open xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-xampp.conf file in your text editor and find 2 instances of
Allow from localhost

change the lines to
Allow from

Save the file and restart Apache.

Next drag C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\Hosts file into your text editor and see if you have a line
::1 localhost

If there such a line then comment it so it looks like this
# ::1 localhost

Save the file then try your XAMPP pages again from http://localhost

Security pages can be found at
and phpMyAdmin from

Clear your browser's cache before trying to go to localhost again and do this often when working at localhost level or you will be served a cached page instead of a fresh page from the server - fact of life.
