LOCALHOST WON'T LOAD, HELP PLEASE

Postby Mateusz » 23. December 2009 21:28

when i go to http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ i get this error

Access forbidden!
You don't have permission to access the requested directory. There is either no index document or the directory is read-protected.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

Error 403
localhost
12/23/09 15:25:56
Apache/2.2.6 (Win32) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.6 OpenSSL/0.9.8g mod_autoindex_color PHP/5.2.5

i went to apache>logs>error and i think this is the problem:

[Wed Dec 23 15:01:30 2009] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] Directory index forbidden by Options directive: C:/Users/Matt/Desktop/Desktop/xampplite/phpmyadmin/

But I don't know how to change this. ALSO, i did a command in cmd so that mysql wont run as a service cuz i wanted to restart it, i dont know the command to make it run like a service, i check the "svc" box but when i open xampp after hitting exit it is unchecked. can somebody please help me with these issues?

PS: i use xampplite 1.6.6 , LOCALHOST WORKED BEFORE.

my directive thing is

<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>
Where is this taken from exactly?

What other changes have you made in the httpd.conf file that may be affecting this issue?

Did you make a backup of the original httpd.conf file before making any changes?

this is from httpd.conf, i didnt make a backup file, the only thing i change was deny from all to "allow from all" and order deny, allow to order allow deny.(I changed it because i couldnt acces localhost, but this didnt help.)
i put the phpmyadmin folder back into xampplite>mysql>backup because i thought putting it in xampplite would make the server find it. with the original placement of the files this is the error i get when i type in http://localhost/phpmyadmin/

It is important that you revert your changes in the httpd.conf file to their original default values, this may make it easier to find the problem.

Next clear your browser's cache, Temporary Internet Files in IE.

Now can you see the XAMPP Welcome Page when you type:
http://localhost/
or
http://localhost/xampp/index.php

Also can you access using the IP
http://127.0.0.1/
or
http://127.0.0.1/xampp/index.php
also
http://127.0.0.1/phpmyadmin

"Next clear your browser's cache, Temporary Internet Files in IE."

What do you mean by this i don't think i understood you.

Can you upload a standar httpd.conf file so i can download it, also can you please tell me the command so i run mysql as a service.

To clear your cached files in IE right click on the Internet Explorer icon on your desktop and select Properties.

Then Under Temporary Internet Files click on the Delete Files button, then OK.

When working at localhost you may often be given an old cached file by your browser instead of a fresh file from your server and by clearing the cache often it will eliminate this behavior so we can be certain that we are getting a server page not a browser cache page.

When you clear your cache try the links I gave and let me know what errors if any you get from the error.log file not the browser - this is a step by step method so we can find your underlying problem.

Normally when you open the Internet Properties item it start at the General tab where you will find Temporary Internet Files heading.

In the mysql and apache folders there is an uninstalservice bat file, use those and try again.

or if that fails try this fix:
