How to change login notification [Answered]

Postby eneos86 » 05. January 2012 01:34

A username and password are being requested by http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX. The site says: "xampp user" .

This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the URL "/xampp/". You either supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required.

In case you are allowed to request the document, please check your user-id and password and try again.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

AFAIK - that login request only occurs when you try to access the 'XAMPP' page and after you have used the 'security tool'.

IS what you are asking - "How do I disable what I have done"???

Good Luck

Very easy: Don't use XAMPP on production environments!
XAMPP is build for small development environments, not for big networks like the internet or other big networks.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

Of course, Altrea is correct. XAMPP is definitely NOT for production environments.

I use it for development and my Linux box is at my office. I often work on it from home, or when I am away on work but have some free time. For me, I don't care who knows I use XAMPP as I have (I think) secured things well enough. That does not mean I advertise the fact either.

Two things that should be done are to turn off server signatures, and remove the /opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp folder (and any aliases or symlinks to it).

As for removing that basic authentication request, I have to say 'you should not be running a server connected to the internet if you cannot figure that out'.
HInt: you should look in the /opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp folder - or - Google ".htaccess"

I think my last statement here and your response to my question totally validates Altrea's (and the XAMPP developers) point. XAMPP is NOT for production environments,

There is nothing I can do to prevent you from being reckless, and it is your machine and your efforts that are on it. I would say "be sure to back up frequently". It would also be a good idea to invest the time to actually learn the technology you want to use.

Good Luck
