They need a large pole inserting and hog roasting for inflicting this on end users who only want to write and test code on a local server. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Can anyone please help solve a problem?
I wrote a simple test script in PHP that required "POST" values to be accessed, the script loads fine but when the page is submitted to the "localhost" that served the page, I get an "Access Denied" notice with the 403 forbidden notice.
After much searching I found several tutorials on various sites, none of which helped, so I then decided to just comment out the annoying security module that has been implemented.
Now I just get a
You don't have permission to access the requested object. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server.
If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
Apache/2.4.3 (Win32) OpenSSL/1.0.1c PHP/5.4.7
notice, and no form post.
I have looked at the php.ini file and that appears to allow POSTing. The problem looks to be what XAMPP have done.
I would like to suggest to the XAMPP developers that in the install process that you ASK the person installing if the want this security implemented and not simply inflict it on people. I only run Apache when offline from the web, ergo no security problems. I also have a firewall that does not allow any incoming connections, again, no security concerns. If someone wants to run a computer on the internet without a firewall, that is their problem and they deserve whats coming, it I feel is not XAMPP's concern with safeguarding, your supplying a test base product that should give bells and whistles for development purposes.
