Alright this is a very confusing issue. When I open nz.ath.cx (our dns name) it comes up to the index.htm page. When I open it using the IP however, it sends us to the /xampp/splash page.

Virtual Hosts are not enabled. Anyone know what the problem is?

I had almost the same problem, so this might help

You can delete that folder if you want anyway so...

In your httpd.config in the apache\conf directory just change what comes first in the line
"DirectoryIndex index.php index.php4 index.php3 index.cgi index.pl index.html.var index.phtml"

or do as I did just delete index.htm and index.html. I am using .php anyway so it helped alot.

the problem as I see it is that in the index.html file in htdocs you will see it says
<meta name="author" content="Kai Oswald Seidler, Kay Vogelgesang">
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=/xampp/splash.php">
<body bgcolor=#ffffff>

What I higlighted is of course the problem. It redirects you to /xampp/splash.php Make sure that none of you index files in htdocs does this.

Hope I was at some help


NB: PLS say if that helped you. Then other people will be helped by it also
