Problem with instalation. (1.5.5a)

Postby mamaly » 06. February 2012 10:56

Hi friends, I have installed the Lampp in opensuse. it runs everything perfectly. That is the start. In any case xampp is running now.

Console tells me:

Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.5.5a ...
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5) ...
XAMPP: Starting MySQL ...
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD ...
XAMPP for Linux started.

I get no error message, but when I viewed via a browser http://localhost or http://127.0.0.1 I get the page not found "can not display the webpage". what am I doing wrong?

Could I inquire why you have chosen such an OLD version of XAMPP???

I suggest you install a more current version that we can support. Generally 1.7.3, 1.7.4, or 1.7.7 are considered current.


Good Luck

can I update this version under the Linux without any problem


If it is all static HTML, the impact will be little.

Without knowing what your 'programs' (or scripts) are it is impossible to say correctly the answer. I am not trying to be difficult, but there are so many variables.

If the programs are from others, it is completely impossible to say, without doing your research on requirements.

IF the programs are in PHP, then you will likely have to at least fix your warnings level. There is a switch that allows the current Linux/Unix versions to run PHP 4 - whihc you cannot do on Windows.

IF you use Perl, the impact may be lower, as the language does not change so rapidly.

If you use MySQL - you may need changes to settings like type= for database connectors, as type= is deprecated now, and engine= is the correct method.

If your programs are solely for your own use, then its one thing, if you are developing for the use of others, its a different case. If you are developing for others, it would be irresponsible not to bring the code up to date.

May I ask if you have pinged 127.0.0.1 or localhost???

Code: Select all
[jonb@localhost ~]$ ping 127.0.0.1
PING 127.0.0.1 (127.0.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=0.048 ms
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_req=2 ttl=64 time=0.036 ms
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_req=3 ttl=64 time=0.041 ms

^Z
[1]+  Stopped                 ping 127.0.0.1
[jonb@localhost ~]$
[jonb@localhost ~]$ ping localhost
PING localhost (127.0.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=0.037 ms
64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_req=2 ttl=64 time=0.044 ms
64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_req=3 ttl=64 time=0.040 ms
64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_req=4 ttl=64 time=0.039 ms


That would be the right thing to do first -

There is one thing I know for sure - we cannot provide support for a version that is 6 years old, too much has changed.
