XAMPP Security settings in 1.8.3-1

Postby okanime » 17. November 2013 07:25

1. Don't install 1.8.3-1 on top of 1.7.3. First back up and uninstall 1.7.3.
2. This link /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/xampp security will not work.
3. First open Terminal and type in cd /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles to get to the xampp files folder
4. Then type in sudo ./xampp security
5. Follow the instructions. Tip, I change everything to the same password since I am not running anything incredibly sensitive security wise.

Below is what you will see in terminal if you did each step correctly. This is for OSX 10.9 Mavericks.
