Problems with the Mac OS X version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Cannot view sites since update

Postby sheferd » 14. February 2014 20:45

So I was running a pretty old vers of xampp (2 years old maybe?) and I used to access my local builds via "http://localhost/foldername.tld/" (included tld to save some time when changing paths on live vers).

Anyway now my xampp homepage is at "http://username.local/xampp/index.php" but "http://username.local/foldername.tld/" doesn't work.
suprisingly google couldn't help, and the docs are too frustrating to work through can you help?

Thanks (:

I encountered the same issue when I converted to Xampp from the builtin WEB server on Mac OSX.

Here is how to resolve the issue

In applications, open the Xampp folder
In the Xampp folder, launch Manager-OSX
Click on the Manage Servers tab
Highlight Apache Web Server
Click on the Configure button
Click on the Open Conf File button (this will open the httpd.conf file in Text Editor for you)
Click on the YES button when prompted
In the httpd.conf file, scroll down to the section:
#DirectoryIndex index.html
# XAMPP
DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.html.var index.php3 index.php4

change the first entry from index.php to what you need it to be and then save the changed httpd.conf file
Click the OK button in the Configure Apache WEB server window
WIth Apache WEB server still highlighted, click on the Restart button

Now when you open localhost on your WEB server, it should open to where you need it to open to.
