View Full Version : [ubuntu] problems with XAMPP

July 31st, 2012, 10:48 PM
I installed XAMPP on /opt/lampp
I start the services but I can't access to mysql or phpmyadmin
in the browser i put localhost/phpmyadmin and the message is:
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".

And then i try the mysql console client

(bin folder) mysql -u root -p -h localhost
then it asks for the password and i press enter because by default xampp doesnt set a password for root
and the message is
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)

So the solution for this is as follows:
1) Open httpd-xampp.conf which is at /opt/lampp/etc/extra/
2) Find <Directory "/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin">
3) Now just add Require all granted before </Directory>
4) So the code will look like this
<Directory "/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin">
AllowOverride AuthConfig Limit
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
Require all granted
4) Now finally Restart the xampp with this command /opt/lampp/lampp restart
