LAMPP 1.8.1 fix for phpMyAdmin + 'new Security Concept'

Postby navonn » 06. February 2013 21:22

It just doesn't work. I have lost weeks on that, changing the file in all ways, installing, uninstalling, re-installing ... while I just want a stand alone lampp working ... and I don't see why "security" should lock everything

Thanx

You should have started a support topic detailing your errors/problems. There are only a very few Linux boxes XAMPP/lampp will not run on, and that is almost always a processor issue. XAMPP is not compiled to run on ARM or Itanium processors (and you would get very off error messages).

Good Luck

Thank you for your answer ; Xampp and the included examples work pretty well. So I don't think that it could be due to the processor; the pb I have is the message concerning the "new security concept" : phpmyadmin is not accessable, so I can do nothing to install my files and databases. I have tried to change the file httpd-xampp.conf, restart, reinstall, ... But I always have the same message. Could it be due to a question of privileges ?
Thanx for your help

A:

Check your section 'New XAMPP Security Section against mine (from a a working Fedora 16/XAMPP 1.8.0 install) that I just tested phpMyAdmin on:

Code: Select all
# New XAMPP security concept
#
<LocationMatch "^/(?i:(?:xampp|security|licenses|phpmyadmin|webalizer|server-status|server-info))">
   Order deny,allow
   Deny from all
   Allow from ::1 127.0.0.0/8 \
      fc00::/7 10.0.0.0/8 172.16.0.0/12 192.168.0.0/16 \
      fe80::/10 169.254.0.0/16 127.0.0.1

   ErrorDocument 403 /error/XAMPP_FORBIDDEN.html.var
</LocationMatch>


Look for things like spaces missing OR you could just cut and paste!

Edit: I also just tested this, also seems to work correctly: (I see that a cut and past of one of the suggestions leads to syntax errors '-' & '+' may only be used with certain directives and must be directly prepended)

Code: Select all
<LocationMatch "^/(?i:(?:xampp|security|licenses|phpmyadmin|webalizer|server-status|server-info))">
Require ip ::1 127.0.0.0/8 \
      fc00::/7 10.0.0.0/8 172.16.0.0/12 192.168.0.0/16 \
      fe80::/10 169.254.0.0/16
   ErrorDocument 403 /error/XAMPP_FORBIDDEN.html.var
</LocationMatch>


B. Irrespective of the above, besides phpMyAdmin (which I use all the time) there's another excellent tool for doing all that MySQL design & administration - Oracle has MySQL Workbench. Free, runs on Mac, Linux, Windows all the same (its written in C + python). I do database work for a living and I rely on it for design work.

:D I'm posting this from that Fedora Workstation --

Good Luck
