authentication for opening test page

Postby AldoJongejan » 29. October 2012 15:35

dear all,

I installed the new version of XAMPP (1.8.1), started Apache and MySQL and tried to check everything by going to the test page. However, this page asks for authentication...nowhere i can find what to do with this!
Tried changing the "xampp.users" file within the security directory, but to no avail. Probably missing something trivial, but I would appreciate some help (and perhaps this should be included on the webpage?)

with kind regards,

Hi AldoJongejan,

Please delete the file \xampp\htdocs\xampp\.htaccess to get rid of that authentification again.

best wishes,
