Just installed but having a problem

Postby djwil » 27. October 2009 17:09

I was having a problem installed on windows with some files for mysql not being created. OK, don't know if I did this correct, but I went to safe mode and reinstalled under my user and it went fine, but now when I am in the windows standard mode and try to go to the Apache admin through the access panel I keep getting queried for a user/password. I never created one so is there a default one?

Don't use safe mode to install XAMPP.

Uninstall your current instance by following the methods in the XAMPP for Windows home page.
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html#524


Make sure all traces of your previous installation attempts are completely removed.

Re-install but don't use safe mode and make sure you are logged into XP with administrator privileges.

Then after install is complete and you have started Apache and MySQL from the XAMPP Control Panel (XCP) so both are showing a green running indication, test your installation by going to http://localhost in your browser or using the Admin... button in the XCP.

Any errors should be investigated using the Apache log files.

It is a good idea to read the whole of the XAMPP for Windows home page and the linked FAQ as they both have very useful information and help.
