Help with conf files for xampp

Postby ozstar » 10. March 2020 06:43

Hi,
I initially had Apache2 installed and working with my static IP # available from the net but as I was having trouble getting php going with it, I decided I would go with Xampp as it had all components I needed.

In the orig Apache2 install I had the .conf files for all my websites and they all worked. eg..
In etc/Apache2/ I created these folders...
conf-available
conf-enabled
sites-avaialble
sites-enabled
mods-available
mods-enabled


I have copied all the html folders with their websites in them from
var/www/html to opt/lampp/htdocs

but am not sure how to get the websites seen.

I guess it is something to do with the hosts and conf files.

http://localhost/dashboard/ shows me the correct Apache 2 page but when I enter localhost/websiteone
I get the index page with the directories listed not the actual html page and images as I did in the first Apache2 install not xampp.

Any help please?

I have just seen this tutorial and want to be sure it is what I need to get my websites on line. I tried it but it does not work for me.

For a start the address to the httpd-vhosts.conf in my xampp setup is not xampp/apache/conf/extra.

My xampp Linux setup to that file is..opt/lamp/etc/httpd-vhosts.conf

Step 2. Create a virtual host under Apache web server

Navigate to the folder C:/xampp/apache/conf/extra.
Open the file httpd-vhosts.conf in a text editor. At the bottom of this file insert the below lines of code/directives.

ServerName xyz.com
ServerAlias www.xyz.com
DocumentRoot "c:/xampp/htdocs/xyz.com/public_html"

Now restart Apache, i.e. Stop and Start.

Note that you can have multiple entries of the above lines of code, one for each website that you add under your XAMPP.


I do have a path opt/lampp/apache2/conf/ with a httpd.conf file in it but which one is the one I need to use?

Thanks in anticipation of some direction.

The Xampp Apache configuration files are stored in /opt/lampp/etc (httpd.conf) and /opt/lampp/etc/extra (httpd-vhosts.conf etc.)

Thank you.

Where do I put the conf files for each site ?

In which file or folder ?

Xampp does not have that concept of different conf files for different sites/domains. That is Debian (and OpenSUSE) way of configuration. You have to put all VirtualHosts into httpd-vhosts.conf for Xampp. You cannot simply copy the previous (Debian?) configuration to Xampp. You should edit httpd-vhosts.conf and insert all changes you need.

Well finally did that in the httpd-vhosts.conf /opt/lampp/etc/extra like so...

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@sydneybiz.com
DocumentRoot "/opt/lampp/htdocs/myownofficeserver/"
ServerName myownofficeserver.com
ServerAlias http://www.myownofficeserver.com
ErrorLog "logs/myownofficeserver-error_log"
CustomLog "logs/myownofficeserver-access_log" common
</VirtualHost>


but do I need to enter anything in the httpd.conf file in /opt/lampp/etc
This is the default..

Alias /bitnami/ "/opt/lampp/apache2/htdocs/"
Alias /bitnami "/opt/lampp/apache2/htdocs"

<Directory "/opt/lampp/apache2/htdocs">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>


When i enter the domain name outside of the LAN I still get to the Apache/Dashboard page, not the index of my dom.

Is it because of anything above, or could it be something else. I have checked everything I know how to do.

Thank you for your help.

Hi,

Can anyone tell me if I need to change the default httpd.conf that comes with Linux Xampp?

/opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf


Alias /bitnami/ "/opt/lampp/apache2/htdocs/"
Alias /bitnami "/opt/lampp/apache2/htdocs"

<Directory "/opt/lampp/apache2/htdocs">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>


My web html file are here..
opt/lampp/htdocs/

No, you dont.

But probably your Virtualhost does not work and is ignored by Apache due to a wrong ServerAlias. You cannot apply a protocoll like http: in the ServerName or ServerAlias, that is quite nonsense. Delete the line with the bad ServerAlias, reboot Apache, evt. clear the browser cache and finally try again.

A quick look into the error log would tell you about your error.

Thank you Nobbie. I have decided to uninstall Xampp due to the many who say it is not secure even though it it is deliciously easy to install all 3 components.
I only got into it because I had so much trouble getting mySQL and php installed with the regular Apache 2.
The Apache works fine but I will have to try again for the other two.

BTW I did look at the xampp error log and this is what was in it for the last 2 days.

Apache only checks once the VirtualHosts, while booting. Actually i dont know to which error log an invalid VirtualHost is reported. But there is a commandline option "-S" for Apache, which lets Apache check and report about the VirtualHosts.

If you have trouble to get the Servers and Php running on your linux, why dont you simply install a server distribution. Like Ubuntu Server for example. These are fully configured out of the box.
