XAMPP CONTROL PANEL Version 3 Problems

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Re: *** New XAMPP CONTROL PANEL Version 3 ***

Hello Stephen, thanks for your feedback.

In XP or in 'Windows versions before Vista' having to constantly and repeatedly click the Run As window tick box (even though one is logged in as administrator with full rights) is very distracting (read annoying) similar to those pesky 'Windows Annoyances' we all read about.

Also the size of the font in the log window now causes an annoying horizontal scroll bar to appear.

Some of the text does not fit inside the default log window size and it does not remember the new size if you change the window to fit the text when you Exit the panel and then restart the panel.

If these little niggles can be addressed then I believe this CP is a winner.

Thanks very much to both of you for giving the XAMPP community a really greatly improved and now true Control Panel.

Best wishes :)

hackattack, for resolving that XP-Admin questions you should add follwong lines in uTools.pas in function RunAsAdmin:

Code: Select all
    wnd   := application.Handle;

INSERT NEW START:
    // 6 = Vista or Higher
    if (WinVersion.Major<6) and IsWindowsAdmin then begin
      lpVerb := nil;
    end else begin
      lpVerb := PChar('runas');
    end;
INSERT NEW STOP:

    lpFile := PChar(filename);



Kind regards,
Steffen

I can add that code but the underlying issue was that the IsWindowsAdmin function does not actually check for Admin on Windows version less than Vista (it just returns True regardless). I haven't looked into this in depth yet but it did not look straight-forward. Thanks for all the feedback though I will start looking into all the issues/suggestions mentioned.

Just given it a thorough workout and all those concerns I had have been addressed and I am pleased to announce that it is now working perfectly, that is, as far as I able to tell.

We need other opinions of course but I am very pleased with this 3.0.6 version.

Top marks to all concerned and at last a true XAMPP Control Panel that I will be using as my primary panel in XAMPP from now on.


My only other concern is your choice of file server Mediafire, being an 'in your face' advert hater, my browser is locked down to prevent this type of web site giving me ads I do not require and so this file server does not perform well when the ads are banned.

Best wishes. :)

Hi,

I installed XAMPP 1.7.7.
My Apache runs on port 8888. XAMPP Control panel v3.0.6 displays right port (8888) but still opens XAMPP Admin page on port 80. Please check and fix this problem soon.

Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,
Son Nguyen.

I just uploaded 3.0.7 and updated post.

You are right, I overlooked this when I did the custom ports. It is fixed in 3.0.7. There is a new window to edit the ports that XAMPP Control Panel uses. You can get to it via the "Config" button then the "Service Options" button if you have not edited it in the INI file manually.

I must edit INI file manually to change Apache port.

I want to make sure we are on the same page. When I said INI file, I mean the "xampp-control-3-beta#.ini" in the "/xampp" directory. This does not change the ports the Apache, MySQL, etc listen on, it only changes the ports the Control Panel checks and uses.

That said, do you have issues using the GUI interface to change these ports? ('Config' button in upper right corner > 'Service Settings' button)

8) ,

Yes, I edited "xampp-control-3-beta#.ini".
At first time to change port from CPv3.0.7 using "Config" button, I could not save my modification and I had to edited the INI file instead. But I can save them now.

I know the translation has not been functional since I started making changes. I finally figured out how it works and how to update it but I don't know German so cannot reliably update the translation file.

I think I will wait until it is included in the next release so files can be easily download from SourcForge or until you find a better less ad orientated file sharing service.

Mediafire is also dial-up user unfriendly of which there are still a large percentage of users Worldwide who have no choice in the matter (broadband of any description is not available).

German translation issues, possible help found in this post:

I added a direct download option I think the file is small enough I will not go over the monthly bandwidth limit.

I will reach out and see if he is willing to do the translation.

As always, feedback and bug reports are welcome.
