Hi, I am a new XAMPP user, not very familiar with Apache or XAMPP.
I installed XAMPP 1.7.2 on my Windows XP virtual machine under OSX. After I installed, my Secunia Personal Software Inspector informed me that Apache 2.2.12 is insecure, and that I needed to update to Apache 2.2.13. I followed the update and installed Apache 2.2.13 under C:\xampp\apache. The installation proceeded without any error, but when I tried to start the apache service, I got the error "Syntax error on line 122 of C:/xampp/apache/conf/extra/httpd-xampp.conf: The specified IP address is invalid."
I commented out the LocationMatch under "New XAMPP Security Concept" and now apache starts up properly. But I am nervous about what security I have disabled and what other damage I have done to XAMPP.
Thanks in advance for your quick response,
