'The connection was reset' when running a specific PHP file

Postby newbtophp » 28. May 2013 08:20


I'm experiencing problems when running a specific PHP file; in the latest Firefox it keeps giving the error 'The connection was reset' (I've tried running the PHP file in a different browser - the latest Internet Explorer but get the same problem).

I've also tried completely uninstalling both XAMPP and Firefox (default browser) - then reinstalling them.

I have even tried clearing the cache in Firefox and also ran CCleaner.

I'm not sure what is causing this problem as when I run the exact PHP file on another machine (on Windows 7 - with XAMPP & latest Firefox) it works perfectly fine and it is not like the PHP file is fairly complex/resource intensive (it does not even call/use MySQL!)? :S

I have tried integrating some debug/error reporting code within the PHP file - but that does not produce/do anything, but I've noticed whenever the PHP file is ran; apache does create/update an 'error.log' file within the 'XAMPP/apache/logs' folder with the following errors:

Code: Select all
[Tue May 28 07:31:18.158004 2013] [ssl:warn] [pid 2404:tid 328] AH01873: Init: Session Cache is not configured [hint: SSLSessionCache]

PS-1: I noticed it is referring to SSL within the above log - I'm not using SSL?.
PS-2: The XAMPP settings are exactly the same since the install (like I have not modified/updated php.ini or have added anything that does within the .htaccess file).

OS: Windows 8 (64 bit)
XAMPP: 1.8.1 (installed relatively to user 'Admin' => 'C:/Users/Admin/XAMPP')
Browsers: Latest - Firefox (default) and Internet Explorer, both have NO third-party extensions/add-ons installed/enabled
Security programs: Avira Free Antivirus, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (PRO) and KeyScrambler (Personal)

Would appreciate if someone could get back to me! :|
