Removing Password

Postby allenm541 » 29. May 2009 06:33

Hi,

When I first installed xampp there was no password. At some point I created one.
At http://localhost/security/xamppsecurity.php is a screen that allows me to change the password; however, it won't let me enter a blank field.

I don't want a password. I'm just testing on my home computer, and for testing purposes, it's just become an annoyance to have to enter the user name and password every time. How can I remove it completely so that I'm never prompted again, like it was when I first installed xampp?

Remove the .htaccess file in the xampp\htdocs\xampp folder.

Remove the .htaccess file in the xampp\security\htdocs folder.

Remove the xampp.users file in the xampp\security folder.

That should do the trick.

This is the XAMPP for Windows forum so your question would best be placed in the XAMPP for Linux forum:

Sorry! I am new in these forum.
I have resolved the problem!
I delete the file .htaccess in htdocs
It is for me enough so the users can access the web pages without password
Thank-You everybody
