--------------------------------------------------------------* QUICK INSTALLATION: [NOTE: Unpack the package to your USB stick or a partition of your choice. It mu st be on the highest level like E:\ or W:\. It will build E:\xampp or W:\xampp o r something like this.] Step 1: Please start the "setup_xampp.bat" and beginning the installation. Note: XAMPP makes no entries in the windows registry or adds new system variables. Step 2: Start Apache with the Control Panel (xampp-control.exe) or with => \xamp p\apache_start.bat. Stop Apache with the Control Panel (xampp-control.exe) or with => \xamp p\apache_stop.bat. Step 3: Start MySQL with the Control Panel (xampp-control.exe) or with => \xampp \mysql_start.bat. Stop MySQL with the Control Panel (xampp-control.exe) or with => \xampp\ mysql_stop.bat. Step 4: Start your browser and type http://127.0.0.1/ or http://localhost/. You should see our pre-made start page with certain examples and test screens.

Step 5: The root directory (main document) fr HTTP(S) is => \xampp\htdocs. PHP fi les have the extension *.php, SSI *.shtml , CGI *.cgi (e.g. also for Perl script s), Perl *.pl and ASP *.asp Step 6: XAMPP UNINSTALL? Simply remove the "XAMPP" directory. You can also use "uninstall_xampp.bat" to do this task. --------------------------------------------------------------* PASSWORDS: 1) MySQL: User: root Password: (means no password!) 2) FileZilla FTP: User: newuser Password: wampp User: anonymous Password: some@mail.net 3) Mercury: Postmaster: postmaster (postmaster@localhost) Administrator: Admin (admin@localhost) TestUser: newuser Password: wampp 4) WEBDAV: User: wampp Password: xampp --------------------------------------------------------------* WINDOWS SERVICES: - \xampp\apache\apache_installservice.bat ===> Install Apache as service - \xampp\apache\apache_uninstallservice.bat ===> Uninstall Apache as service - \xampp\mysql\mysql_installservice.bat ===> Install MySQL as service - \xampp\mysql\mysql_uninstallservice.bat ===> Uninstall MySQL as service - \xampp\filezilla\filezilla_installservice.bat ===> Install FileZilla as service - \xampp\filezilla\filezilla_uninstallservice.bat ===> Uninstall FileZilla as service

- \xampp\mercury\mercury_installservice.bat ===> Install Mercury as service - \xampp\mercury\mercury_uninstallservice.bat ===> Uninstall Mercury as service Or just use the "Svc" checkboxes in the Control Panel. ---------------------------------------------------------------A matter of security (A MUST READ!) As mentioned before, XAMPP is not meant for production use but only for develope rs in a development environment. The way XAMPP is configured, is to be open as p ossible and allowing the developer anything he/she wants. For development environments this is great but in a production environment it co uld be fatal. Here a list of missing security in XAMPP: The MySQL administrator (root) has no password. The MySQL daemon is accessible via network. phpMyAdmin is accessible via network. Examples are accessible via network.

To fix most of the security weaknesses simply call the following URI: http://localhost/security/ The root password for MySQL and phpMyAdmin, and also a XAMPP directory protectio n can being established here. * NOTE: Some example sites can only access by the local systems, means over loca lhost. --------------------------------------------------------------* MYSQL NOTES: MySQL starts with standard values for the username and the password. The preset username is "root", the password is "" (= no password). To access MySQL via PHP with the preset values, you'll have to use the following syntax: mysql_connect("localhost", "root", ""); If you want to set a password for MySQL access, please use of MySQL Admin. To set the passwort "secret" for the user "root", type the following: \xampp\mysql\bin\mysqladmin.exe -u root -psecret After changing the password you'll have to reconfigure phpMyAdmin to use the new password, otherwise it won't be able to access the databases. To do that, open the file config.inc.php in \xampp\phpmyadmin\ and edit the following lines: $cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] n So first the 'root' password is queried by the MySQL server, before you can acce ss phpMyAdmin. = 'root'; // MySQL User = 'cookie'; // HTTP authentificatio

--------------------------------------------------------------* CPAN/PEAR: CPAN and PEAR are preinstalled with only the basic packages. If you need additio nal packages, you can use the XAMPP Shell (xampp_shell.bat) and install them with the command line tools: - cpanp i Foo - pear install Foo If you don't have a VC6 compiler, you can use "ppm" instead of "cpanp", to insta ll binary packages. --------------------------------------------------------------Have a lot of fun! Viel Spa! Bonne Chance!
