Scope of support

Evaluate if your topic is in scope of support of our board. We don't want to provide...
  • ...support via personal communication channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer, etc.
    One advantage of community support boards is that every user can participate in issues and solutions of other users. To make this possible every information relating to this issue needs to be accessible for the other users (which is not the case for personal communication channels).
    If you think that some from a helper requested information contains sensitive data (like personal data you don't want to share with the world), ask if you can send this part of the information via PM and mask this data in your post.
  • ...support for third party applications like WordPress, Joomla!, phpBB, Skype, etc.
    There are several hundred of thounsand of these applications out there, all of them with their own requirements, characteristics and issues.
    The developers of these applications are knowing their own software best and commonly provide their own support channels where you can get proper support relating to this specific product.
  • ...support 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.
    You and/or your company earns money for what you are doing. If you don't have the knowledge to solve XAMPP problems on your own, spend a part of your money to hire an expert or pay an it freelancer to solve such problems. We all need jobs and money to live and 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.

Thx to your own stupidness and lazyness - a fool with a tool remains a fool.

Yes!! Exactly what is described in the very basic readme. Thats what happens if you ignore readmes....

See Altreas posting for more information, you did everything wrong what one can do wrong. Now you learned it the hard way, exactly what you deserved.

I downloaded this version in the original official page!
https://www.apachefriends.org/hu/download.html
The problem are more than a bug! The program defaultly allowed all visitors to browse and download all my documents with a simple browser! This is caused by an integrated function. Not just the server but other partitions. They get the PHP Admin password and get another documents from another patritions.This is not an optional option its defaultly in the program.The other problem this is hidden and specialy from avarage users!Defaultly with this funktion the server works like a backdoor from everybody who know this adress!

Yes of course. And the official page states, that this package is NOT(!) MEANT(!) FOR ONLINE servers, but only for your private development. Everything else is caused by your IGNORANCE!

Not excusing the OP here but,

http://www.apachefriends.org
What is XAMPP?
XAMPP is the most popular PHP development environment

XAMPP is a completely free, easy to install Apache distribution containing MariaDB, PHP, and Perl. The XAMPP open source package has been set up to be incredibly easy to install and to use.

I have to say it would be helpful if it also stated "NOT FOR LIVE PRODUCTION SERVERS ON THE WEB." I've seen this stated somewhere deeper (probably what Altrea quoted) but putting it right out front where no one can miss it would be extremely helpful. Not after-the-fact which is what that statement in the form rules is.

More problematic than that I've seen many tutorials and how-to's that suggest Xampp. The large majority say nothing about this not being for a live server. While that's not Xampp's fault, it would be prudent to make it impossible to miss when they come here following some other idiots shabby advice.

Some folks just don't know the difference between Development and Production. Web developers are not server administrators in more cases than not. This is your user base, get used to it and do what you can to prevent it. If that was plastered on the front page you have done your due diligence and those that ignore it can then be berated, called stupid idiots, morons, whatever you wish.

I am very curious about this. Did you make sure to change all default passwords and security holes like described in this page?

I definately agree. But "someone" has to tell that to Bitnami, unfortunately none of them reads in this forum.

I see that the server-info and server-status special pages can be accessible from outside because the new security concept is no longer part of xampp (i don't know why).
But i don't see how someone could be able to access any private folder or file on your local computer. Can you prove that or give more information about how this was happened on your pc?

I just did, not that it won't just end up in /dev/null. I can at least hope not.

If what keeps unauthorized peeps out of those pages is failing elsewhere, like phpmyadmin, game over with the default passwords.

The probleme here wehen its connect the internet everyone can acces your files. This is a huge mistake, or intentional backdoor. Does not matter your run a private what connet in internet or public web server. I consider such a function to be outrageous "free comjuter hack for everybody".The function is HIDDEN in the program. It's a big unwanted surprise! It's defaultly active, and nothing warns him. Its does not care the seted up PHP admin password funkcion. The funktion are not in the dashboard,or PHP admin page, its not public. The forums,help center,faq and another toturials does not talked before anything like this.

This was the link:
http://server name/phpmyadmin/abc.php?

The cracking started with:
http://server name/server-info
http://server name/server-status

All cracked folders start with this link: http://server name/phpmyadmin/abc.php?(and the folders)
The PHP admin was password protected!

We already mention that it is not production ready, in the FAQ: https://www.apachefriends.org/faq_linux.html
XAMPP is not meant for production use but only for development environments. The way XAMPP is configured is to be open as possible to allow the developer anything he/she wants. For development environments this is great but in a production environment it could be fatal.

Here a list of missing security in XAMPP:

The MySQL administrator (root) has no password.
The MySQL daemon is accessible via network.
ProFTPD uses the password "lampp" for user "daemon".
PhpMyAdmin is accessible via network.
Examples are accessible via network.


I think it is pretty clear. I do not know how we can make it even clearer or more secure defaults that do not interfere with development/ease of use

You don't have to. But burring this in the faq is not enough, most often that is read after the fact. If there's one thing I've learned following this forum over the years, people don't go out of their way to read. Hence all the post about something not working and asking how to fix, posting the very part of the message they get that tells them to check the logs and windoze event viewer, and they don't even read that part of the error message.

Just put it where I suggested. You've done your duty!
