localhost/xampp/ 2 years 5 months ago #32614

Hi,
I am following an adobe 4 lesson tutorial on editing wordpress themes in Dreamweaver (I am doing this to understand the structure of WordPress in html,css etc. then I am going to get into the lessons on OS training)

I loaded xampp but nothing appears on the local host page or localhost/xampp
I've unchecked port 80 as the alternate port in Skype. something else it may be.
Kaspersky has XAMPP blocked as a heuristically calculated threat - 22% of people have blocked it. so this has to be the problem. Is there some facet of XAMPP that is a threat? Is there a security leak I need to know about or should I allow Kaspersky to trust this entirely?
I assume my XAMPP is running on my 64 bit platform even though the download said XAMPP WIN32.

the XAMPP control panel for Windows is in Kaspersky's trusted group but it's the XAMPP-Win32-1.7.7-VC9-Installer.exe that is untrusted.
I'm thinking your going to say I should allow this.
Thanks for your help.
Since writing the above I place the ...exe into a trusted group and firefox or IE still won't display the xampp for windows page.

Hi mul88tiii

Looks like you've been through this before :) Skype is certainly a common culprit and so is your firewall. You've also guessed my answer correctly. I personally would trust XAMPP and add the exception as you did.

Disappointing that it still didn't work though.

One thing to try might be WAMP: www.wampserver.com/en/. It's almost identical to XAMPP but might not be blocked by your firewall.

If that fails also, we might have to think about other possible conflicts on your computer.
Ask. We'll help. It's as simple as that.

Thank you Steve,
I read up on it first here:
www.adobe.com/devnet/dreamweaver/articles/setup_php.html

Do i need to uninstall XAMPP first before installing WAMP?
here is what the control panel says-

Hi mul88tiii

Yes, you will need to have either one or other (not both) installed I'm afraid because the systems are so similar.

I've uninstalled XAMPP and installed WAMP and WAMP does not open at all.
I have windows7 64 bit

I found this research of a similar problem.
www.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=37143
Maybe I should scrap the whole wamp xampp idea as i want to learn WordPress and this could take an days if ever to figure out.

Hi mul88tiii,

Could you install Wordpress on a remote host (i.e. with your hosting company)? If you already have a live site on your hosting company's server, you can install in a subfolder (call it testsite) and you can use that as your training area. Your host will take care of all the issues for you.

Kind regards,
Nick

I have Bluehost and can access wordpress through them already. But I want to open the wordpress site in Dreamweaver and be able to alter css ans html- if that is possible to accomplish can you tell me where I can find directions?

The directions I found on Adobe's site needed the XAMPP installed.

Thank you.

Hi mul88tiii,

OK, in that case any localhost program will work. Which one do you want to try? XAMPP or WAMP?

One that actually works with windows 7 64-bit.
"any localhost program will work"-- not so easy in reality.
I tried both (see full thread) and feel like I'm going in circles with this.

Thanks for trying though.

Both work for Windows 7 64-bit :) I even have wamp installed and running right now and I use a Windows 7 64-bit computer. The issue is more likely to be with your Kaspersky security software.

Pick the one that you'd like to use and we'll help you troubleshoot it :)

Nick,

I have researched and no solutions are working.
I clicked on XAMPP Control Panel "as Service" for Mysql and Apache and also:
You have to disable the http.sys service manually via the registry:

1) Launch RegEdit:

2) Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HTTP

3) Add a new DWORD (32-bit) value

4) Name it ‘NoRun’ not including the quotes

5) Double click the new property

6) In the Value data field type ’1′ not including quotes and click OK

7) Re-boot your computer

You should now find that Apache will start on port 80!
I did the above which is a 2009 solution.-didn't work-- I have 64bit and wonder if I should do the same except in step 3 add a new 64bit word instead of 32-bit.
I removed the WAMP low restriction in Kaspersky the XAMPP is in trusted.
I rebooted and tried running apache as a service and it won't run.

any ideas?
I have since found this support forum: wordpress.org/support/topic/resolved-dre...er-cs5-and-wordpress

Many people have been going around in circles much longer than I have maybe misled by articles saying it's possible to edit WP in DW. there are too many variables to sync.
One fellow worked it out and created this site www.5ing.us
I'm impressed.

Hi Ruth,

I'm not sure you should have edited that. Can you check your Apache error log and see what's in there? You can find it in \xampp\apache\logs\error.log

Nick, I just saw this...

"In the browser's URL area, try 127.0.0.1 instead or https://127.0.0.1"

I did not have 127 of any sort (could be wrong)in my browser but I did paste in only 127.0.0.1
>and it worked<
- on top of (or after) all the weird changes I made
that's all I had to do?
shouldn't mysquirrel.database be working?

Hi Ruth,

Great! I'm glad that worked! Can you restart all services now to see if the mySQL will start working?

If that doesn't work, can you revert your changes that you made at the following permalink: www.ostraining.com/support-forum/wordpre...alhost-xampp/#p32715

Hi mul88tiii,

Did you revert the changes at the following permalink? www.ostraining.com/support-forum/wordpre...alhost-xampp/#p32715

If so, then try going to:
xampp/phpMyAdmin/config.inc.php

and add:
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['socket'] = '/xampp/mysql/mysql.sock';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = '127.0.0.1';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['connect_type'] = 'tcp';

under the line with:
$i++;

Nick,
I made those changes and it looks like it all works, even though I don't know what working actually is supposed to be like.
Have you ever successfully run wordpress in Dreamweaver?
I remember editing portions of Blogger in Dreamweaver so maybe this can work.

I've added passwords (w/o screwing anything up)

Now on to step two. thank you for your patience. It kept me on track.

Hi Ruth,

No, I've never run Wordpress in Dreamweaver and I don't even own Dreamweaver :)

You're welcome for the help :)

By those changes, do you mean the xampp/phpMyAdmin/config.inc.php or revertingthe changes at the permalink (www.ostraining.com/support-forum/wordpre...alhost-xampp/#p32715) or both?

Can you check your Apache error log again and see what's in there now? You can find it in \xampp\apache\logs\error.log

I made the one last change - adding this suggested code
$cfg[$i] = '/xampp/mysql/mysql.sock';
$cfg[$i] = '127.0.0.1';
$cfg[$i] = 'tcp';

Instead of undoing this series of changes within "disable the http.sys service manually via the registry: etc" I uninstalled and reinstalled XAMPP and starting fresh then I made one I couldn't undo but this gets so confusing going back over ..suffice it to say your code above has fixed it.

error log:(I see two warnings)

can I send it to you all of it privately if you need the code with password info

Hi Ruth,

Great, one more step then (hopefully).

Go to \xampp\mysql\my.ini and remove the pound symbol (#) from:
#bind-address="127.0.0.1"
and then save.

Afterward restart mySQL and give it a go.

Hi Ruth,

I see it within the last screenshot that you uploaded. It's called "my" because your Windows 7 file navigator is hiding the file extension ending (.ini). Looks like it's located in \xampp\mysql\bin\ folder. Look for "my" and then follow the directions at the the permalink above,i.e. www.ostraining.com/support-forum/wordpre...alhost-xampp/#p32855

although xampp control panel application says mysql is running

here is the error log below
I see "overwritten -- Unclean shutdown of previous Apache run?"
"Warning! 30 month gap detected! (5/2009 to 11/2011)"
"'C:/xampp/htdocs/php_test/comments.php' not found"
and the password my computer remembers is incorrect so I add the letter to correct it each start.


here is the error log

Hi Ruth,

Can you check the my.ini again and make sure that the file was saved and line was uncommented?
bind-address="127.0.0.1"

If so, I'm sorry but I'm not sure what the issue is with your setup. Do you have someone you know that could take a look at it for you? Perhaps an IT person in your department?

Kind regards,
Nick

Hi mul88tiii,

Could you install WordPress on a remote host (i.e. with your hosting company)? If you already have a live site on your hosting company's server, you can install in a subfolder (call it testsite) and you can use that as your training area. Your host will take care of all the issues for you.

Kind regards,
Nick


The site will then be visible to the public from a search?
Or is there a way to access password only? I don't want this to look like and compete with the site up already.

Hi Ruth,

No, it wouldn't necessary be visible. If there are no public inbound links to the site then search engines wouldn't even know it exists and neither would anyone else.

You can also install the Maintenance Mode plugin to add a guaranteed measure of protection:
wordpress.org/extend/plugins/maintenance-mode/

Nick

thank you Nick - very helpful.
I typed a detailed question in retur and lost it.
short version - is it possible to keep many of the old page addresses as there are dozens of sites which link to the current non wordpress version of the site I want to makeover in wordpress.

You're welcome, Ruth!

As to the new issue, could you open up a new topic for please? This one is getting very cluttered :) I'll get an answer started in the mean time:

It depends on the structure of your current URLs. Could you post a URL of your current site in the new topic so that we could take a quick look?

Kind regards,
Nick

paste in
$cfg[$i] = '127.0.0.1';
before the closing tag

Hi Ruth,

Search for "$i++;". You should add it right below that line.

Aside from a training area you would or would not recommend this method to create wordpress sites?

Hi Ruth :)

I would. It's a good place to create test sites as well, before going live.
