How to stop Xampp loading in the wrong place? [Solved]

Postby Xamppingaround » 28. July 2012 11:45

Hi !
Just reinstalled the previous version i had (1.7.4), i made some changes on the structure of the website, by this i mean that, previously, i had my website directory in the same place where i have installed Xampp, but this succesively created me problems with Xammp, as i was unable to load up some default programs.
So, now i installed Xammp on 192.168.5.8 and my site on 192.168.5.8/x.
The problem is that every time i try to load my website, on the first try i get redirected to 192,168.5.8/Xammp.
I think it's something that has to do with configuring the Httpd.conf file inside the Apache folder, maybe every request on port 80 is getting caught by Apache???
How can i fix this???
Thanks.

Nooooo- LOL -

It has to do with 'index.php' in \xampp\htdocs - its a redirect to \xampp\htdocs\xampp (whihc is the XAMPP Welcome Page)

Code: Select all
<?php
   if (!empty($_SERVER['HTTPS']) && ('on' == $_SERVER['HTTPS'])) {
      $uri = 'https://';
   } else {
      $uri = 'http://';
   }
   $uri .= $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'];
   header('Location: '.$uri.'/xampp/');
   exit;
?>
Something is wrong with the XAMPP installation :-(


You either:

'had a a different index.php'

OR

'you had changed the 'index order' so a different default index was served'

httpd.conf: look for

Code: Select all
# DirectoryIndex: sets the file that Apache will serve if a directory
# is requested.
#
<IfModule dir_module>
    DirectoryIndex index.php index.pl index.cgi index.asp index.shtml index.html index.htm \
                   default.php default.pl default.cgi default.asp default.shtml default.html default.htm \
                   home.php home.pl home.cgi home.asp home.shtml home.html home.htm
</IfModule>



Good Luck

Thanks, so, what is the action i should take?
The index.html for my site is located in 192.168.5.8/x/index.html, would i just need to add this address on this part of the code "$uri = 'http://HERE'; " inside the 'index.php' in \xampp\htdocs ????

Provided that you don't have an index.php in the htdocs\x\ folder (which would be served before index.html unless you changed the index order)

this change should work:

Code: Select all
header('Location: '.$uri.'/x/');


Good Luck
