I am not a network engineer.
Is this relating to a HP ProLiant Server?
Hello, is anyone home....?
The members of this Apache Friends forum who answer support requests are all unpaid volunteers and normally you would have to wait until one of those volunteers, who may know the answer, finds the time to reply to your request for help - "bumping" after only a short time has elapsed since first posting, may actually put some members off replying, which actually in turn, may cause an even longer delay before you receive an answer.
proliant server running Windows 2003 Server
You included the OS you are using but keep in mind that it is also helpful to included the XAMPP for Windows version you have installed, which may help with troubleshooting, as now different versions of XAMPP can require a different approach, much the same as different Operating Systems can also demand a different troubleshooting approach, as I am sure that you being a network engineer would be very familiar with.
(In the following paragraphs I am using the default XAMPP for Windows installation paths).C:\xampp\htdocs
contains an index.php
file that redirects a request from a browser for an index file in the Apache server's DocumentRoot to an index file in C:\xampp\htdocs\xampp\index.php
- for example http://localhost/
will redirect to http://locahost/xampp/index.phpC:\xampp\htdocs\mediawiki\index.php
will always have to be called by http://localhost/mediawiki/
unless you configure your server differently.
So, if you put your MediaWiki folders and files including it's index file in the C:\xampp\htdocs
folder and delete the index.php
and the index.html
included in the XAMPP installation, then http://localhost/
will give you your MediaWiki index page.
Then to get to the XAMPP Welcome Page, after deleting the redirecting index.php file, use http://localhost/xampp/index.php
Because Apache Listens on all IP addresses on port 80 (Directive Listen 80
in the httpd.conf file) your networks should also be able to find your wiki pages and the XAMPP Welcome Page after reconfiguring your server using the method mentioned above.
