Local host / Page cannot be displayed

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

Local host / Page cannot be displayed

Postby Levisatak » 09. December 2015 17:43

Hi,

I have searched the internet looking for an answer to my problem but couldn't find one.

I have installed Xampp successfully on my computer, running under Windows 7. I have launched the panel as an administrator, changed the ports for Apache to 4433 and 8080 because otherwise it wouldn't work. Everything worked perfectly until I tried to launch the admin page. At that point, I am faced with a blank page which finally ends up in an error message "This page can't be displayed". I am under IE11...

I have pretty much tried everything I could find on forums to solve my problem, but couldn't manage.

I would appreciate a lot if you could help !

Thanks in advance,
Levisatak

On the Xampp control panel, there's an Admin button, linking to a page. This one.

How exactly did you do that?
Does the control panel know the new ports too?
What is written in your browsers address bar after hitting the Admin Button?

If you do so, you have to change ports twice(!); one in Apache Configuration (httpd.conf) and again in Xampp Control Panel. Otherwise Control Panel does not find the Admin Page (missing Port in URL).

Ok, then Xampp cannot run on your machine for an unknown reason. Sorry, i cannot help further.

I am a bit surprised that you told us, that you changed the port in the Control Panel (only one of two instances) and that dont know, where to change it also. Then you suddenly said, that you did everything right. Ok, so please tell us, where you changed the ports as well. Because i dont believe, that you "already did all that". It is on you (and only you) to get your installation running.

Nobbie > I just wanted confirmation for the ports, making sure I hadn't forget anything... No need for that kind of tone I think.
Anyways...I changed it on the Config menu for Apache and MySQL and also on the Config button on the right top part of the Control Panel. And I have made it run on an older and less performant machine, I don't see how it could not run on an almost new one... :roll:

Altrea > After hitting the admin button, it is written : http:localhost:8080/phpmyadmin . The page stays blank, I have the Waiting for localhost message and then "This page could not be displayed".

Thanks

Alors, after going to the error log, I have the following message : "server certificate does NOT include an ID which matches the server name"

Thats only a warning.

I still cannot see, how and where you changed the ports for Apache (which has to be done in httpd.conf)?! There is neither a config menu nor a config button for that. You need a text editor, you have to edit the file httdp.conf and have to apply the appropriate changes. Did you do that?

Yes, that is what I did by clicking on the config menu of Apache : Image

I opened http.conf and then http-ssl.conf. Which indeed, opens a text file. In that I changed the ports, at two different lines, each time.

Because it is not a question of hardware, but of software. The question is, if Apache / MySQL can listen to their desired ports, or if any other software already listens to these ports. But i give up now, it is to hard to get proper information and finally, it is your problem, not mine.
