alias stopped working

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

alias stopped working

Postby Xyzzyx » 19. September 2013 08:22

I created a file apache/conf/extra/httpd-custom.conf with the following:

Code: Select all
Alias /WebDev "/WebDev"
   <Directory "/WebDev">
        AllowOverride AuthConfig
        Require all granted
    </Directory>

Alias /OpenSim "/OpenSim"
   <Directory "/OpenSim">
        AllowOverride AuthConfig
        Require all granted
    </Directory>


and in apache/conf/httpd.conf I added the line:

Code: Select all
Include "conf/extra/httpd-custom.conf"


(as per http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=53045 )

It worked just great for a month or two, then suddenly it stopped working for the 'WebDev' directory, but continued to work just fine for the 'OpenSim' directory. Both directories on on the drive root, as is the XAMPP parent directory.

I've tried deleting the WebDev entry, restarting XAMPP, then adding it back in and restarting XAMPP. That didn't have any effect. I've also tried rearranging with the WebDev entry following the OpenSim directory, also with no effect. I'm not even sure how to start troubleshooting this because the 'OpenSim' entry is working just fine, and they had both been working just fine and no changes were made to XAMPP, Apache, MySQL, or PHP (the only modules I'm running). What do I need to do to get it working again?

Using Win 7 & XAMPP 1.8.1

Well, I gave up and completely wiped & reinstalled xampp. Now running v1.8.3. After setting up as above, it is still not working for the WebDev folder, nor it it working for the OpenSim folder either.

Please help!

I tried what you have and it works just fine for me. There must be something else going on.

[s]No errors in the console log to show![/s] EDIT: added error logs

What happens is that I start xampp, start Apache and MySQL. Navigating to localhost in my browser brings up the xampp page, which also shows no errors. 'Status' on the xampp page shows everything active (except Tomcat, which I disabled). PHPmyAdmin also works.

When for example opening a php file in Firefox from the WebDev directory, it obviously isn't processing the php. Viewing the source via Firefox displays the php code in red. When trying to run OpenSim from the OpenSim folder, it (OpenSim) just crashes instantly, the same way it does when I forget to run xampp first.

It's like xampp is just ignoring the alias lines in the conf files.

Note: I should mention I don't know why it says "unclean shutdown of previous apache run?" - When shutting down xampp, I 'stop' MySQL, then I 'stop' Apache and wait for them both to show not running, then I click 'Quit' on the xampp window.

Just popping in to mention the php error seems to have sorted itself (presumably when I visited localhost in my browser is what gave it a language to set in the lang.tmp file).

The most recent apache error.log (virtually identical to the other, but different child process number, not sure if that's significant). Is the RSA cert warning anything I need to worry about? Still closing xampp as 'cleanly' as I know how, so still not sure why it is complaining about that.

No. HTTPS/SSL is preconfigured with dummy data to test if it is working. That produces the warnings.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

This all looks like as if you were trying to simply "double click" in Explorer View on PHP Files (inside WebDav or OpenSim) instead of (correctly) applying "http://localhost/WebDav" in your Browser URL. Typically, there is neither any log, nor seems PHP to be executed (and finally, this does not work at all!).

Am I right with my suggestion?

oh GEEEEEEZZZZZZ...! :oops:

Yep, sure enough Nobbie, that's it. Simply replacing "file:///F:" with "localhost" did the deed... To quote Bejamin Zander, "How FASCINATING!"

However, OpenSim doesn't rely on the browser or php (it's a 3D virtual environment, often referred to as "the open-source version of Second Life" opensimulator.org), it just requires Apache and MySQL, but is still no longer working. However I would assume that's outside the scope of this forum. Might be something I need to add to an .ini file or something else I've completely forgotten about. But at least I can finally return to building websites!

Anyway, many thanks for your patience on this when I really just needed a smack upside the head! :lol:
