Xampp Cache?

Postby rube2112 » 21. August 2011 23:51

Hi, I've been running xampp as a production server for about 5 years. I just upgraded the other day and now I'm having a problem which I can't seem to fix by myself. Today I needed to update a few pages which I did, and now xampp will not recognize the new page. It keeps loading the old version. Even if I create a new file by a new name, it is not recognized and gives a 404 error. ?? I have no idea what the problem is. Help! Robb

Make sure, using the XAMPP Control Panel, that Apache and MySQL are actually running.

Next clear your browser's temporary Internet Files (browser's cache).

When ever the server issues a 404 file not found error message to the browser it records that error in the above mentioned error.log file - that is a fact so you are looking, for example, an entry similar to this
Code: Select all
[Mon Aug 22 16:42:24 2011] [error] [client] File does not exist: (then here the path to the file not found)
in the log file.

The server's cache may contain php files in the \xampp\tmp folder and apart from why.tmp you could delete all files and folders or simply move them out to another temporary location, then move them back if they fail to help your issue - much like a backup would do.

To gives us more info so that a proper troubleshoot can be effected we need to know:
1. The physical location of the file you are trying to load in your browser.

2. Exactly what you type in your browser's address bar to try and load the file in 1.

This info is needed or we can only offer inaccurate guesses that will not really help anyone and simply prolong the effort to a final solution.
