Don't get the mainscreen of xampp

Postby rovo1968 » 06. December 2012 02:14

After typing
I get the next message in my browser (Firefox 16)

    Server fout!

    De server kreeg een interne fout en kon uw vraag niet beantwoorden. De server is overbelast of er was een fout in een CGI script.

    Indien u van oordeel bent dat deze server in fout is, gelieve de webmaster te contacteren.
    Error 500
    Apache/2.4.3 (Win32) OpenSSL/1.0.1c PHP/5.4.7
i'll try to translate it:
    The server received an internal error and could not respond your question. The server is overloaded or there was an error in a CGI-script.
    If you believe that this server is in error, please mail/contact the webmaster.
    Error 500.
I don't know how to describe this error to the webmaster.

What is wrong, why i don't get the homescreen of xampp?
What does error 500 mean?

It usually means that a script running in CGI mode (often a Perl Script) has choked. Possible reasons - the script is not properly configured or has syntax errors. The script has probably has a redirect that points to it in your DocumentRoot. The script is probably located in \xampp\cgi-bin.

I do have a question though - aren't YOU the webmaster?

Good Luck
