Brand new to XAMPP. Thanks for wonderful software. Sorry for wrong posting.

At present PHP developed application is running within in our network. the hostname is ltrsql. port 81. (port 80 taken by iis7). following issues

issue 1. apache not responding to some user requests. total users 300+ local network. how to improve apache performance.
issue 2. I assigned public ip to network card. access from local network using public ip (xx.yy.zz.aa:81) works good within our network. But tried from internet. no web page is displayed. (xx.yy.zz.aa:81). ping is working. no firewall.
issue 3. tried install xampp in another server. everything ok. working fine. but localhost:81/xampp asking for user name and password. I am very sure that I had not provided any such thing. so how did it happen. how to solve. where to find user name and password.

config : all - 5 GB RAM / 160 GB HDD / VM session / Win 2K3
db back end sql server 2005

Already resolved, please send me link. Thanks in advance and very sorry.

=> [INFO] How to not fail getting help here (Section: Scope of support)
Evaluate if your topic is in scope of support of our board. We don't want to provide...
  • for live, production or public accessible environments.
    XAMPP is not configurated for such environments (default passwords, many activated and probably unnecessary modules, not tweaked for performance, scalability, stability or security). This board does have several entrys about hacked XAMPP installations because of using unprotected XAMPP installations in not supported environments. XAMPP don't want to fit every possible use case and there are other (also free) alternatives for such environments.
  • ...enterprise or commercial oriented support.
    In a company or commercial oriented environments there are much more things to consider like legal requirements or network security. Every action can contain a financial risk so even answeres on simple questions have to be analysed if they fit all the rules the environment requires. This cannot be achieved in two sentences of a forum post. If you are an employee at a company your employer should spend the money to hire an expert or freelancer for support questions on one of the many freelancer boards.

best wishes,
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
