Yes, that would be an easy change. I will make sure it gets in there in the next release.

Hi folks :D
The last time I was here...I was a grumpy old git and apologise for that.... :oops:
I have had terrible problems getting Xampp working on Windows 64bit.

Example:
I could install 1.7.7 and when I started the services via control panel the admin links were active and I could set my root password no problem. After rebooting the computer - the admin links were not active and connection to phpmyadmin gave me an error and I was locked out. I tried setting the config file but no dice...

I have tried everything in the last few days and each time was the same -the root password was set and then I restarted the services...no problem ...password worked, but after rebooting computer nada...

My firewalll was setup to allow access...

I have just seen the new panel and gave it a try...
I followed the same procedure as before to set my root password, restart services, and reboot computer....now it is working and the admin links are active on the new control panel.
I have no problem getting acces to MySql so everything is as it should be again...... :lol:

I don't know the ins and outs of what you have updated on the new control panel....but my hat goes off to you guys for a brilliant job well done.

I just hope I am not being premature with this post.... :D

Re: XAMPP 2012: What we are planning?

Hi there,

a proposal:
I am refering to when the control panel is open and the icon appears in the system tray, that the icon also offers a quick way to stop/start any of the modules.
And then, when closing the control panel, the icon shall remain visible, as long as one of the modules is still running.

Kind regards
sylvia

I can look into adding additional control to the tray icon. The control panel already has a mechanism to remain running while hidden. If you 'X' out of the window as opposed to clicking the 'Quit' button, it will minimize itself to the tray instead of fully closing.

Apologies if this is in the wrong topic, but I am gettting 'Apache Service Detected With Wrong Path', then 'Uninstall the service manually first!' from CP Version 3.0.11 on Win Vista, though service then installs. Path to executable is 'C:\xampp\apache\bin\httpd.exe' is this a real problem or an incorrect error message?

Was this a one time thing or is it recurring?

Did you have an existing Apache service?

Re: Showing unrendered php code in browser on preview.

Postby inspiration1312 » 18. July 2012 15:26

Thanks JonB, problem solved.

I opened my php pages directly with url http://localhost/..../abc.php in the browsers, they are working fine.
But with dreamweaver problem persists. Going to checkout Adobe forums!

C.In the control panel, clicking on stop button parallel to apache, the server doesn't stop.

Please provide as much detail as possible (if you're using a service or not, how many PIDs are showing, any anything else you feel is relevant)

Hell all :)

I have a small problem but cannot solve it, I hope you can shed some light:

I can START/STOP Apache from control panel but not MySQL, I can start it using mysql_start.bat though, and STOP it from control panel.
No errors in the log of course.

How can I solve this please?

Thank you in advance :)

P.S.:
I use the XAMPP Control Panel v3.0.11 and it is configured to run as administrator in windows 7 x64.

Hello,

Could you do the following to provide more context:
1. Click the "Conifg" button in the upper right corner of the control panel
2. Check the "Show Debug Details" box
3. Click Save
4. Exit and Reopen the control
5. Try to start MySQL
6. Post the entire Control Panel log here between Code tags

Here is the result:

Code: Select all
23:12:04  [mysql]    Starting mysql app...
23:12:04  [mysql]    Executing "a:\google drive\xampp\mysql\bin\mysqld.exe --defaults-file=a:\google drive\xampp\mysql\bin\my.ini --standalone"
23:12:04  [mysql]    Return code: 0


The command line is bugged as there is a space in folder name, this works as intended:
Code: Select all
"a:\google drive\xampp\mysql\bin\mysqld.exe" --defaults-file="a:\google drive\xampp\mysql\bin\my.ini" --standalone


Is there a way to edit the command line that control panel constructed?
Or maybe change the way it constructs the command line and always include double quotes.

Thank you :)

Short answer, no.

It is generally discouraged to install XAMPP in a directory with spaces. Due to this, I never initially accounted for those situations, however, it is fixed as of 3.0.12. You can steal the new CP from XAMPP 1.8.0 and use it in 1.7.7.

I never had any issues in this same directory exept for launching services with control panel.

I already use XAMPP 1.8.0 Lite, but the control panel was not included in it, I'll take a look in full version and steal it from there.

Thank you for your help :)

Is it possible to get the control panel to always use the (v1.8.1) portable Apache/MySQL even though I have Apache/MySQL services installed? The entries for EnableServices in the xampp-control.ini are 0 and not checked in the GUI.

(The control panel does not properly request privilege elevation and crashes with an access violation when it tries to start the services unless I ran it as administrator. But I don't want it to try to start the services; I want it to be a control panel for the portable XAMPP.)

Ahah! I think I figured it out. I deleted the Apache and MySQL serviceNames:
Code: Select all
[ServiceNames]
Apache=
MySQL=
FileZilla=FileZillaServer
Tomcat=Tomcat7


Now it's starting the local apps. Hope this helps someone else. (Shouldn't the setup script have done this? Edit: Perhaps it would have done if there weren't a space in my path? I will try on another folder.)
