Hi, just a quick question before I start downloading. Has anyone tried XAMPP on FreeBSD.

Thanks in advance.

There is a "unofficial" XAMPP for FreeBSD (native FreeBSD compilation). At the moment this version is for testing (eg. the upgrade function between the versions is missing).

I think tomorrow i'am ready with the latest build. You can have a download link if you want to make some tests ;-)

BTW:
You should be able to use XAMPP for Linux if you enable the Linux Binary Compatibility. Maybe you must change some paths in the startupcript, because Kai use the Bash on another location as you can find this on FreeBSD (i have never used the Linux Binary Compatibility, so i have not really knowledge about this)

Yes please and thanks in advance for the download link. I will be using a dedicated "box" with a fresh install for testing. I may try compiling with Linux Binary Compatibility enabled but, at first I would prefer not to.

I have just installed this on a testing computer i am playing with.
it is FreeBSD 5.4 RELEASE with a GENERIC kernel.

the install went good and it started right up like it should.
the xampp security script doesnt seem to work the same as the xampp i have used in the past. The security page says:
To fix or close all these matters simply call

/usr/local/xampp/xampp security

This will start an interactive program.

i dont think this is correct because it doesnt work for me.
i guess this is how security is setup?
Code: Select all
./xampp passwd           #to set password
./xampp security on      #to turn security on

after i did this and checked the xampp security page it still says "These XAMPP pages are accessible by network for everyone: Unsecure" but the rest of the checks are Secure.
again im not sure if in the latest xampp this is how it works or if it is the freebsd version only.
is there a ./xampp command to set this password?
I am going to install some different web software on it and i'll try to report back if i have any problems. :)

You are right. The language files and translations are from "XAMPP for Linux", without big changes. And here I've only changed the path/scriptname. Sorry.

./xampp passwd #to set password
./xampp security on #to turn security on

In the README you can read the default user/password for Apache/MySQL/ProFTPd. MySQL and ProFTPd always use this user/password. Apache uses only this user/password for several locations if you enable the security with
Code: Select all
./xampp security on

don't forget to restart apache:
Code: Select all
./xampp apache restart


With
Code: Select all
./xampp security passwd

you can set the password for:
MySQL: root
ProFTPD: nobody
Apache: nobody

is there a ./xampp command to set this password?

it's always the same script:
/usr/local/xampp/xampp

"mod_fcgid" is not working for you?

Try switching PHP with:
Code: Select all
/usr/local/xampp/xampp phpfastcgi5
or
/usr/local/xampp/xampp phpfastcgi4
