HTTP Status 404 - /phpmyadmin

Postby martinb » 11. August 2018 00:06

Hi, I'm new to XAMPP and also I'm new to Qt which is the book I'm following to get started (Hands-On GUI Programming with C++ and Qt5).
I'm using Windows10, and XAMPP Version 7.2.7, I have had to make some changes to avoid conflicts with my system, for example main port, SSL port, and HTTP port
after I made the changes I'm able to run the control panel, and start all modules.

My problem is that when I try to access my phpMyAdmin account by entering "http://localhost:8010/phpmyadmin", in my browser I get the following error below. Can someone help me solve this issue?

HTTP Status 404 - /phpmyadmin
type Status report

message /phpmyadmin

description The requested resource is not available.

Apache Tomcat/7.0.56

Error 404 means "file/path does not exist". You either deleted the ALIAS for phpmyadmin in httpd-xampp.conf or did something similar. Either restore the ALIAS or move the folder c:/xampp/phpmyadmin to c:/xampp/htdocs/phpmyadmin

Look into the error_log and access_log for detailed information also.

I just have another clue, in config.inc.php you will find a line which show the server (i.e. http://localhost or similar), maybe you have to add the port there as well (as phpmyadmin may execute a redirect).

Anyway, we strongly recommend NOT TO CHANGE standard Apache ports (you currently see why, this always leads to unpredictable results). Port 80 and 443 are the reserved http(s) ports and it is always a bad idea to use different ports than the standard for all the protocolls (http, ftp etc.). Instead find out what is blocking your Port 80 and 443 and change THAT software (or de-install it).

Thanks Nobbie, I'll follow your advice and go back to default port settings. I''ll have another go at it and see how it works out.

Hi I reset all ports to default, and I'm getting the following message which prompted me to make the changes in the fist place. I resolved the Port 8080 issue by deleting the process using it, but I cant delete what ever is using Port 80 as I have also pasted below from TCPView.exe.

System 4 TCP user-pc.home netbios-ssn user-PC 0 LISTENING
System 4 TCP user-PC http user-PC 0 LISTENING
System 4 TCP user-PC microsoft-ds user-PC 0 LISTENING

That is Microsoft HTTP Services (i.e. Microsoft IIS Internet Information Service, thats Microsofts Webserver), you have to disable that service (or deinstall it). You will find lots of hints in Google when searching "Port 80 in use by "Unable to open process" with PID 4!"
