How do I activate components ??

Postby Dorovar » 25. November 2009 12:21

So I installed XAMPP on Windows Vista Home Premium.
Apache works, MySQL works, but under status [http://localhost/xampp/], all of my components are deactivated, except SMTP Serivce, and FTP Service.
Like so :
____________________________________________
Component Status Hint
MySQL database DEACTIVATED
PHP DEACTIVATED
Perl with mod_perl DEACTIVATED
Apache::ASP DEACTIVATED
HTTPS (SSL) DEACTIVATED
Common Gateway Interface (CGI) DEACTIVATED
Server Side Includes (SSI) DEACTIVATED
IPv4 DEACTIVATED
IPv6 DEACTIVATED
SMTP Service ACTIVATED
FTP Service ACTIVATED
______________________________________________

I'm sorry but I don't know enough to figure out how to activate them,
and I can't find any relevant topics with any answers . . .

How do I control these components ??

Sorry if this is stupid . . .
Please any help would be great . .

XAMPP for Windows 1.7.2
What Windows OS?

There appears to be something drastically wrong with your XAMPP installation.

Did you follow either of the 2 installation instructions and answer all the questions using the defaults in the installation setup script?

In XAMPP Control Panel which components are running?

What are you typing in the address bar of your browser to access localhost?

Hey Izzy -
Thanks much for your reply !
I agree with your assessment that there was something wrong with the install,
if there isn't some specific way of "activating" components.
I'm new to this, so I appreciate you taking the time !!
... and pointing me in the right direction !!

So after a few tries, I disabled my virus protection, then re-installed, and now all components are activated.
I'm guessing that was the deal.
Whatever the case . . problem solved !!!

Thank you much !!
