Not really, i agree to "Atrea" that in fact the basic authorization is not so hard to understand. On the other hand, students learn how to protect Apache (and MySQL) generally (what works on ALL servers), the Xampp securitiy concept was special for Xampp and it did not work on any other server environment, only in Xampp. And (what never has been found) there sometimes has been an issue that users screwed up their Xampp installation (it has never been fixed and still nobody knows, what was going wrong there). Last not least, Xampp is not so unsafe as it might look, it is designed to run in a localhost environment and it is safe, as long as it remains in the localhost environment.
