  • append port to every request
    the new port needs to be added to every request (e.g.: instead of http://localhost/xampp/index.php to request the orange XAMPP administration page with port 1234 you need to use this url http://localhost:1234/xampp/index,php. This is not needed for the default ports, because if no port is given the default ports based on the protocol (http://, https://, etc) is used.
  • XAMPP control panel configuration
    The control panel needs the information about the new ports, otherwise the Admin buttons and port prechecks will not work anymore

    [...]


Done that?

if I type http://localhost:8080 I get the dash board, if I click admin on the MySQL section I get http://localhost/phpmyadmin which I have to change to http://localhost:8080/phpmyadmin and then it works, is that what your referring to? the problem is when I click mysite http://localhost:8080/mysite/index.php just get waiting for localhost.. its an opencart standard install which works online

Means XAMPP is working as expected

So you did NOT configure the new port in the control panel settings too.

Either your OpenCart configuration is the problem (did you adjust the config to use your local url?) or your Apache / PHP settings needs to be adjusted, or this opencart version does not work with the PHP version used in your XAMPP.
In all cases this is a third party requirement issue. You should ask that question on an OpenCart support channel.

config file has been changed in OC (opencart) to cater for localhost connection, just to be complete, what setting for the server should be in the config file of OC to direct to the database location?


this is out of the apache error logs
[Tue Mar 08 13:47:09.241172 2016] [ssl:warn] [pid 6068:tid 324] AH01909: www.example.com:443:0 server certificate does NOT include an ID which matches the server name


It eventually says the server has gone away, so it seems it cannot find the db?

here is my setting for the server in the OC config file

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://localhost:8080/auctioneerslive/');

that is my local foldername

I don't know Opencart. I only know that many webapplications need to be adjusted for local úse.

This is not a problem. This message results from a SSL dummy configuration and occurs on every XAMPP installation.

Depends which server. Can also be a timeout problem. But i cannot say in which way OpenCart reacts on specific situations.

is that correct anyone? never used xampp but I know its c:\xampp\mysql in its physical location and that site folders should be placed in c:\xampp\htdocs so can my php find the db server? all tests with php work fine ie: phpinfo() etc

I cannot tell you if this is correct. This is a OpenCart specific constant. How am i able to know what OpenCart expects there?
Ever tried to google this? => http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?t=149679

Oh okay. My fault. I was expecting you don't know what the problem is...
So i can assume you did already adjust the .htaccess file to fit your local URL and subfolder like the tutorial explains?
