User with "Limited Account" can't run ApacheFriend

Postby mawan » 12. January 2005 07:48

I am teacher who teach Web Design. Using Administrator account, a week ago I installed ApacheFriends on each computers (Windows XP Professional with SP2). Then I tested to run it. Everything was okay.

Next day, my students logged in using "Limited Account". But I very surprised. ApacheFriends cannot be started.

My questions:
1. What's wrong?
2. How to solve this problem?

I do need your suggestions as soon as possible. Thanks you.

Best regards,

On Windows2000, I have XAMPP (Apache and MySQL) set up to run as services, so they start up automatically on boot.

I normally log into Windows as a restricted user.

If you want to be able to modify the contents of the htdocs directory while logged in as a restricted user, you'll probably need to change the permissions of that directory, or move that directory someplace else (such as within the user's documents directory), which requires editing httpd.conf.

Your installation path?

--> the user who start XAMPP (xampp_start.exe), must have enough rights in this directiory and below ("\xampp\...").

Hello!

I'm also a web programming teacher, and I use in my school Xampp, because I think it's the best application for working with php and MySQL.

But I am having a really big problem. All my students need to login into Windows XP as admin user, which is something really annoying for me to maintain computers free from viruses and foreign installed problems.

I need to run XAMPP in a Windows XP limited account. I have tested it, I'm using default directory, I have provided full rights to dir to limited user but simply, it doesn't work.

I have send directly to the dev team this pettition with no success.

Please, can you give me any advice on how to solve this issue?

Thank you very much!
xoxo

Don't install the services for Apache/MySQL (remove the mark at the svc checkboxes in the XAMPP control panel.

Thank you for your reply.

I always install XAMPP with default values:

c:\xampp and no SVC services.

Also I have tried last version with no success.

Can you please tell me what do I have to do in order to run XAMPP in a limited windows XP account? I really need it!

Thank you very much for your time.

Nothing special:
- don't use the services
- the users must have read/write (full) access in the xampp dir

BTW:
If e.g. Apache can't start, you should have an error message or something in the "error.log"?
