Step #4 of XAMPP installation?

Postby windofkeltia » 25. April 2007 19:16

Ah, this is embarrassing, but upon apparently successful installation of XAMPP on my SuSE 10 box and a successful launch of lampp, I launch Firefox to http://localhost as suggested by step 4 and get the default Apache web server page. I do not see the XAMPP for Linux flash art page. I also tried typing in the address shown in the illustration (which simply isn't found).

I do get the supplementary notification during start-up of lampp:

"XAMPP: Another web server daemon is already running."

What could I have done wrong?

taliesin:/home/russ # Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.6.1...
XAMPP: Another web server daemon is already running.
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for Linux started.

[1]+ Done /opt/lampp/lampp start
taliesin:/home/russ # ps ax | grep lamp[p]

XAMPP: Another web server daemon is already running.

If you want search for another webserver...

taliesin:/home/russ # ps ax | grep lamp[p]

... you should not only search for the XAMPP Apache.

So, are you saying that I should kill any other Apache webservers running? I killed all occurrences of /usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf and the reran lampp thus:
    taliesin:/home/russ # /opt/lampp/lampp start
    Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.6.1...
    XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
    XAMPP: XAMPP-MySQL is already running.
    XAMPP: XAMPP-ProFTPD is already running.
    XAMPP for Linux started.
which appears better than the first time I tried. Now I see
    taliesin:/home/russ # ps ax | grep http[d]
    11953 ? Ss 0:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
    11982 ? S 0:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
    11983 ? S 0:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
    11984 ? S 0:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
    11985 ? S 0:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
    11986 ? S 0:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
    11987 ? S 0:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
However, launching Firefox on http://localhost still only yields the default Apache web server page and not the XAMPP page that Step #4 is talking about.

I'm completely new at this thing. I'm trying to get XAMPP going so that I can use PHPeclipse to debug some php bindings I wrote. I know a little bit about Apache, but not enough to understand what you're saying.

    Not other "Apache webservers". All other webservers. But in your case it seems the same ;-)

    Looks good :-)

    still only yields the default Apache web server page

    Clear your browser cache.

    That's it. I don't get the exact page from the documentation, but I do get an XAMPP splash screen. Thank you very much for helping me.
