Problem Logging into Security Xampp

Postby high_tower » 24. January 2008 15:34

I'm having trouble logging in to sort the security out on the server running xampp.

It shows me what the problems are but when i try go onto the link http://localhost/security/xamppsecurity.php i get the error 'Forbidden for Client'

any ideas on a resolution?

What happens when you go to just http://localhost ?

Can you click on all the menu items without any error messages?

Does Apache even start?

What do you see when you run .\xampp\xampp-portcheck.exe ?

Full complete error messages should be pasted here.

What clues can be found in the apache .\xampp\apache\logs\error.log file?

Did you change or add anything to any of the XAMPP configuration files?

This has been known to fix this issue:

Open .\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf file in your text editor and add this to the bottom of the file:

Save the file and restart Apache then try again to access the page again - first always make a backup of conf and ini files before editing in case you make a type and apache won't start.

I've done all the things you suggested so thank you. It was the added line to the conf file that seemed to resolve the issue.

thank you for a speedy response
