Lampp security error for v5.6.12

Postby jl303 » 19. October 2015 18:09

I installed xampp-linux-x64-5.6.12-0-installer.run on Ubuntu 15.04.
When I run ./lampp security, I get this.
XAMPP: Quick security check...
XAMPP: Your XAMPP pages are NOT secured by a password.
XAMPP: Do you want to set a password? [yes]
XAMPP: Password:
XAMPP: Password (again):
/opt/lampp/share/xampp/checkapache: line 41: /opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp/.htaccess: No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat ‘/opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp/.htaccess’: No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat ‘/opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp/.htaccess’: No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access ‘/opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp/.htaccess’: No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access ‘/opt/lampp/htdocs/webalizer/.htaccess’: No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access ‘/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin/.htaccess’: No such file or directory
This also happens to xampp-linux-x64-5.6.11-0-installer.run.
However, xampp-linux-x64-5.6.8-0-installer.run has no problem with ./lampp security.

The security option is deprecated in Xampp. There is no action required any more, unfortunately neither the documumentation nor the folders have been adapted. Simply put your own files and projects into htdocs and run them via localhost.

Thanks,
I still like to change my default passwords if I open it up to network.
Is there information on how to change those passwords that I could set up with ./lampp security if I want to make your set up more secure?

No, i dont think so.

Xampp is NOT designed for Online Access, it is meant as an development environment only. If you like to use it Online, you *should* at least know how things are working and where and how to set passwords.
