Removing redirect to /xampp/splash.php

Removing redirect to /xampp/splash.php

Postby SyRenity » 06. July 2004 13:31

I'm trying to replace entire htdocs directory, but even with a new one, the apache still insists to forward me towards /xampp/splash.php. I couldn't find any related info in httpd.conf, soi it must be configured else where. Any ideas?

Look in "index.html" in htdocs. This contains:

<meta name="author" content="Kai Oswald Seidler">
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=/xampp/splash.php">

<body bgcolor=#ffffff>

Which sends you to the splash page. Just delete, modify, or rename this file.

I deleted the default index.html in htdocs and insert my own index.html and yet it still redirects to the splash.php. 8(

Code: Select all



<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />
<meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache" />
<meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-cache" />
<meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow" />





That is the index.html in htdocs now and like I said, somehow I'm still redirected to splash.php

Also checked out httpd.conf and it has no reference to splash.php

I am confused. I have shut down the server. Reboot, etc. Same old thing happens.

I get the same thing when I try to use a different document root.

When I connect to or localhost via port 80 on webrowser I get the correct documentroot. However, if I use my lan/wan ip it still uses htdocs...

proxy or browser

:lol: Hi! Try changing your proxy settings or if you are using Netscape, check the refresh rate of your index.html page (or something like that).
It should not display what it remembers, but what is read, ok?
If I am allright, you should be seing the correct page if you use another browser, or you delete all your cached pages...

there is a file called index.html in the htdocs which has an redirect to htdocs/xampp/splash.php

Now since you have deleted all the files...
The only thing that is possible is the Browsercache.

I believe I had the same problem as the one post where it says "I get the same thing when I try to use a different document root".

My goal was to change the documentroot, and I could never get it to work by stopping and restarting apache. would still show DOCUMENTROOT as the old one even though it was changed in httpd.conf. I had to restart my computer in order for it to take effect.

FWIW I tried to stop and restart the server using xampp_stop.exe and xampp_start.exe but those programs always "encounter an error" and have to close.
