Xampp security problem

Postby grparisgr » 13. July 2013 10:24

Hello everyone ,i will try to be short.

I've installed xampp 1.8.2 at my machine Snow leopard 10.6.8.All the lights of the servers are green (Mysql, proftpd, Apache) but when i select to open application then safari browser pops and says "Safari can't connect to the server.Safari can't open the page " htttp://localhost:2500/"because safari can't connect to the server "localhost" . Now from the research that i made i found out that the error is at the file under XAMPP/xampfiles/etc/extra/httpd-xampp.conf and more specifically at this part:

<LocationMatch "^/(?i:(?:xampp|security|licenses|phpmyadmin|webalizer|server-st$
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from ::1 \
fc00::/7 \

ErrorDocument 403 /error/XAMPP_FORBIDDEN.html.var

I'v tried with plenty of ways to change this such us , add a line that say allow from or allow from
or i changed the "Deny from all "line to "Allow from all".But still no luck.Any thoughts?

p.s. Also when i clicked at xampp/xamppfiles/bin/apachectl i got this error message
"(48)Address already in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:8088"

Thanks for your time
