I have installed XAMPP on a WinXP system and have great success with the product thus far on getting everything installed and running as a service. I have also loaded XAMPP onto a Linux box (process was easier). On the Win32 ver I have ran into complications though. The Linux version of XAMPP has a security script that can be ran and locks the system down effectively. The Win32 ver of XAMPP does not have a 'security' script that will password protect many of the packaged software components.
The SSL in Win32 works well if manually connecting to https:// . However when I go to http:// the default XAMPP directory does not force the connection to use SSL and posts the default pages with out password as well.
How do I make the default directory force SSL ???
How do I turn on the password protection ???
I have attempted to read the Apache 2.0 support docs but they are not very user (noob) friendly.
Is there a user (noob) friendly link someone can send that will assist me ???
Is there a 'security' script that I can run on Win32 XAMPP that will put in the securities the way Linux XAMPP has them, did I overlook it ???
