Can't access phpmyadmin again!? [Solved]

Postby jl2035 » 15. December 2012 11:43

This is probably similar to this topic: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=51501

Every time I install xampp I get into new issues... :(

This time I changed the owner of the lampp folder (sudo chown -R nobody:root /opt/lampp), but I still cannot access phpmyadmin...

What to do now?

There are several things you do not say:

A. Is your problem on the same machine?

B: What Linux version and what XAMPP version

C. What is the exact error you get and when does it occur?


Good Luck

The problem is exacly the same I had last time I was installing xampp (the link I provided) ...

- I have ElementaryOS which derives from Ubuntu 12.10 I guess.
- Latest xampp version from the website
- The problem: It's basically the same except the solution does not work (chown nobody:root).

Accessing phpmyadmin gets me this:

Code: Select all
New XAMPP security concept:

Access to the requested directory is only available from the local network.

This setting can be configured in the file "httpd-xampp.conf".


And what's really making me nervous is the fact that it's all happening on my laptop...so that's like 10000% locally!

All the time I'm trying to "Access the requested directory from the local network."

and finally please... if you never fix this just change this error message... it totally pisses you off!

This is a 403 error -
New XAMPP security concept:

Access to the requested directory is only available from the local network.

This setting can be configured in the file "httpd-xampp.conf".


A. NO - it is probably not the same problem - it is most likely the changes in in mod_auth and .htaccess that is causing the problem.

B. Please make the changes suggested in this post to your system:
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=51873

Lets us know if that is the fix.

If it is not a fix, please paste the tail of your httpd-xampp.conf into your reply.

That is why we made it a 'sticky. Also please modify your Profile in User Control Panel so we don't have to ask what versions every time.

Thanks
:)

As for your last, I'd be open to hearing what you think the error message should be. I have ideas that come to mind, but I'm also OK with the factual message currently provided.

Yep... that fixed it...

As for the error message ... it was in fact a joke, but if you asked, let me think... :roll:
Maybe it should just say 403 error, or maybe exclude "Access to the requested directory is only available from the local network." part.

Well, thanks for your help!
