Help with Xampp

Postby khhaven » 18. October 2004 23:22

Hi I'm new to all this and was wondering if xampp can be configured for outside use, what I mean by that is how do i set it up so that other people outside of my network can view my pages and what I know that i have to port 80 foward, are there any others?

Standard web pages run on port 80. SSL stuff runs on port 443. That's largely it, so far as the software is concerned. You need a public IP address that allows incoming connections, and if you want it to have a normal domain name, you need DNS service to point that domain to your public IP address.

So far as Apache/Xampp is concerned, http.conf is where you set stuff up. So far as DNS is concerned, you need a DNS server, or a service that provides it. There are several free DNS servers available for Windows, but I'm not sure I'd recommend that route if you're not familiar with what DNS actually does. ZoneEdit gets mentioned a lot as a free service that works well, though I'm not familiar with them myself. Take a look at http://www.zoneedit.com/ and see if it makes sense.

Assuming you're talking about your web site, running on the same computer as the MySQL server, no, you don't need to worry about that (and don't want to open it up). MySQL isn't accessed by someone accessing your web site, it's accessed by Apache, running on your own machine, so it's all local access.

Now can someone tell me how to secure it so that no one besides me can acess my stuff like phpMyAdmin and so no one can mess with my MySql Database?

And thanks for the help people!

Hi,

try reading the FAQ:
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/faq-xampp-windows.html

- How I can set a "root" password in MySQL?
- Everyone can use PHPMyAdmin from outside!

So long
