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!
