Access forbidden/httpd.conf locked

Postby Dazzathedrummer » 16. December 2018 11:06

Hi,
I've tried a few suggestions that I've come across but none of them seem to work.

I'm simply trying to install Wordpress - I get an error page that says

Access forbidden!

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".


But I can't find a file called http-xampp.conf - only a file called http.conf in apache2/conf.

When I try to configure it, I get the message...

https.conf os located on a server volume. You can not unlock this file


...as I said, I've tried a lot of this suggested on the internet but nothing seems to work. I'm running High Sierra 10.13.6.

Are there any definitive instructions for this - I'm a bit puzzled as to why there would be a security feature that prevents you from using a product without having any documentation for the feature (unless I've just not found the documentation yet of course!).

Thanks,
Darren

Did you install the VM version of XAMPP or the normal one?

I must apologies - as soon as I hit submit on my post, I found the answer in the FAQs on the Xampp website.

I now have this working.

Onto the next problem - setting file permissions!
