XAMPP In the Eyes of Others

XAMPP (Apache Friends) is a free and open-source cross-platform web server solution stack package developed by Apache Friends, consisting mainly of the Apache HTTP Server, MariaDB database, and interpreters for scripts written in the PHP and Perl programming languages. Since most actual web server deployments use the same components as XAMPP, it makes transitioning from a local test server to a live server possible. Wikipedia
XAMPP is the title used for a compilation of free software. The name is an acronym, with each letter representing one of the five key components (Apache, MySQL/MariaDB, PHP, Perl). The software packet contains the web server Apache, the relational database management system MySQL (or MariaDB), and the scripting languages Perl and PHP. The initial X stands for the operating systems that it works with: Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. IONOS

Method A: Installation with the EXE


Using the self-extracting archive is the easiest way to install XAMPP. Start the EXE file, choose a directory and click on 'Install'.



XAMPP is extracting now and the setup script 'setup_xampp.bat' will be start automatically.



The self-extracting archive knows following parameters:



  • -d[targetdir]
    default is 'C:'

  • -s or -s1
    start extraction automatically without progress indicator

  • -s2
    start extraction automatically with progress indicator

  • -sp[extract auto]

    • 'extract' = don't start the setup script

    • 'auto' = setup script without keyboard input, using default values





E.g. you can make an automatic installation of XAMPP into the directory 'D:www' with:
xampp-win32-1.7.2.exe -dD:www -s2 -spauto



Warning:
All files in the target directory will be overwritten!



Now you can start the 'XAMPP Control Panel'. With the CP you can start/stop the servers, or install them as Windows services (checkbox 'Svc').


Method B: 'Installation' without the Installer


Unzip the zip archives into the folder of your choice. XAMPP is extracting to the subdirectory '[Ziel]xampp' below the selected target directory. Now start the file 'setup_xampp.bat', to adjust the XAMPP configuration to your system.



If you choose a root directory 'C:' as target, you must not start 'setup_xampp.bat'.



Like with the EXE, you can now use the 'XAMPP Control Panel' for additional tasks.



The setup script


With the setup script 'setup_xampp.bat', which you can start at every time and is located in the folder 'xampp', you can:



  • start the 'XAMPP Control Panel'

  • in the case you have moved XAMPP to another location, you can relocate the paths in the configuration files. You can also switch between absolute (with drive letter) and relative (without drive letter) path names

  • (de-)activate basic functions or add-ons



At the first start (XAMPP installation):



  • you can install startmenu/desktop icons

  • you must locate the paths

  • the timezone for PHP and MySQL is configured


I want to start XAMPP without setup


If you extract XAMPP in a top level folder like 'C:' or 'D:', you can start most servers like Apache or MySQL directly without execution of the file 'setup_xampp.bat'.



Not using the setup script, or selecting relative paths in the setup script, is preferred if you are installing XAMPP on a usb drive. Because on each pc such a drive can have an other drive letter. You can switch from absolute to relative paths at any time with the setup script.



Practice 1: The XAMPP Shell and the CLI


For all friends of the console ('cmd.exe'), there is the XAMPP Shell 'xampp_shell.bat'.



The XAMPP Shell is a command line interface with an adjusted searchpath ($PATH) for the XAMPP tool. Also some environment variables are set.



If you have already opened a command shell, you can set the necessary paths and variables for XAMPP with:
xamppxampp_shell.bat setenv



Especially working with PEAR ('pear.bat') or Perl ('cpanp.bat' / 'ppm.bat') should be done with the XAMPP Shell.



All peoples who want control the XAMPP servers in the shell, or remote with e.g. telnet, can use the XAMPP CLI (Command Line Interface).



Usage:



xampp_cli.exe «command» «service»



Examples:



  • start/stop Apache and MySQL

    • xampp_cli start xampp

    • xampp_cli stop xampp



  • (de-)install Apache as Windows service

    • xampp_cli installservice apache

    • xampp_cli deinstallservice apache



  • start/stop Mercury

    • xampp_cli start mercury

    • xampp_cli stop mercury





If you start the CLI without a parameter, you can see the available ones.


Practice 2: Start, stop, test the XAMPP servers


The universal control center is the 'XAMPP Control Panel' (thanks www.nat32.com). It is started with:
xamppxampp-control.exe



As you know this from older XAMPP versionsh, you can also use some batchfiles to start/stop the servers:



Apache & MySQL start:

xamppxampp_start.exe

Apache & MySQL stop:

xamppxampp_stop.exe

Nur Apache start:

xamppapache_start.bat

Nur Apache stop:

xamppapache_stop.bat

Nur MySQL start:

xamppmysql_start.bat

Nur MySQL stop:

xamppmysql_stop.bat

Mercury Mailserver start:

xamppmercury_start.bat

Mercury Mailserver stop:

xamppmercury_stop.bat

FileZilla Server start:

xamppfilezilla_start.bat

FileZilla Server stop:

xamppfilezilla_stop.bat



Test:



After starting of Apache (and MySQL), go to the address http://localhost/ or http://127.0.0.1/ in your browser and examine all of the XAMPP examples and tools.



Practice 3: Installing a particular server as as service


Each server in XAMPP you can install also as Wndows service:



Apache service install:

xamppapacheapache_installservice.bat

Apache service uninstall:

xamppapacheapache_uninstallservice.bat

MySQL service install:

xamppmysqlmysql_installservice.bat

MySQL service uninstall:

xamppmysqlmysql_uninstallservice.bat

FileZilla service install:

xamppFileZillaFTPfilezilla_installservice.bat

FileZilla service uninstall:

xamppFileZillaFTPfilezilla_uninstallservice.bat

Mercury service install:

xamppMercuryMailmercury_installservice.bat

Mercury service uninstall:

xamppMercuryMailmercury_uninstallservice.bat


Practice 4: The XAMPP Add-Ons


Still questions? See also:
»Forum - Questions about Add-Ons«

Many additional add-ons exist for the development with the main package. At the moment, the official add-ons for win32 from this side are:



  • Perl add-on with mod_perl and a selection of important Perl Modules.
    As of XAMPP 1.7.2 part of the basis package.

  • Tomcat add-on with mod_jk and Sun JRE5



You can install add-ons like the XAMPP basis package, with a EXE or a ZIP. Extract the add-ons directly into the XAMPP directory, e.g. 'C:xampp'. In contrast to the XAMPP basis package, you must always start the setup script 'setup_xampp.bat' (manually or automatic). The setup script integrates the add-on into the XAMPP package.



With the setup script, you can (de-)activate an add-on (if this function is available).



Additional XAMPP Add-Ons you can find at
SourceForge.



Practice 5: The XAMPP upgrades


With a new XAMPP version, there is normally a upgrade package too. Additionally, we have sometimes small patches between the releases.



An upgrade is always problematically and there can be errors in the upgrade process. Because of this, you should always make a backup from your XAMPP folder before you upgrade it.
werden.



We are trying to adjust your configuration files during the upgrade progress, if necessary. Especially if a new XAMPP have a lot of changes compared to the old one, we are providing no upgrade package for security reasons. Sorry.



As with the add-ons, install the upgrade directly into the XAMPP directory (e.g. 'C:xampp'). And you must also start the setup script 'setup_xampp.bat'.


The XAMPP security console


As mentioned at another place, XAMPP is not meant for production use but only for developers in a development environment. XAMPP is configured is to be as open as possible and to allow the web developer anything he/she wants. For development environments this is great but in a production environment it could 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.

  • The XAMPP demopage is accessible via network.

  • The default users of Mercury and FileZilla are known.



All points can be a huge security risk. Especially if XAMPP is accessible via network and people outside your LAN. It can also help to use a firewall or a (NAT-) router. In case of a router or firewall, your pc is normally not accessible via network. It is up to you to fix these problems. As a small help there is the 'XAMPP Security console'.



Please secure XAMPP before publishing anything online. A firewall or an external router are only sufficient for low levels of security. For slightly more security, you can run the 'XAMPP Security console' and assign passwords.



If you want have your XAMPP accessible from the internet, you should go to the following URI which can fix some problems:
http://localhost/security/



With the security console you can set a password for the MySQL user 'root' and phpMyAdmin. You can also enable a authentication for the XAMPP demopage.



This web based tool does not fix any problem! Especially the FileZilla FTP server and the Mercury mail server you must secure yourself. If you don't need these servers, don't start them. A server which is not started, is very secure!



Method A: with the uninstall script


If you want uninstall XAMPP, you can use the uninstall script:
xamppunstall_xampp.bat



This script:



  1. deinstalls the Windows services

  2. delete the startmenu/desktop icons

  3. delete the XAMPP directory



If selected, the directories 'xampphtdocs' and 'xamppmysqldata' are not deleted. But you should really thinl about, if need something from your stuff, like configuration files, before you start the uninstall process..


Method B: just delete it


It's also possible to remove/delete by your own:



  1. stop all serves

  2. remove the Windows services

  3. stop the XAMPP Control

  4. delete the startmenu/desktio icons

  5. delete the XAMPP directory



As with the unnstall script, 1st backup things you still need, 2nd delete...



Question 1: What is the 'Lite' version of XAMPP?


XAMPP Lite (means 'light' as in 'light-weight') is a smaller bundle of XAMPP components, which is recommended for quick work using only PHP and MySQL. Some servers or tools such as Mercury Mail and FileZilla FTP are missing in the Lite version.


Question 2: Where should I place my web content?


Problems? See also:
»FAQ - XAMPP for Windows«

The main directory for all WWW documents is xampphtdocs. If you put a file 'test.html' in this directory, you can access it with the URI 'http://localhost/test.html'.



And 'test.php'? Just use 'http://localhost/test.php'. A simple testscript can be:

<?php
echo 'Hallo world';
?>



A new subdirectory for your web? Just make a new directory (e.g. 'new') inside the directory 'xampphtdocs' (best without whitespaces and only ASCII), create a test file in this directory and access it with 'http://localhost/new/test.php'.



Further specifics:

Executable: xampphtdocs
Allowed endings: .html .htm

Allowed endings: .jsp
=> Tomcat add-on

Servlets Java:

Executable: xampptomcatwebappsjava (e.g.)
Allowed endings: .html (u.a)
=> Tomcat add-on



Question 3: Can I move the XAMPP installation?


Yes, that's possible with XAMPP. After moving of the XAMPP directory, jou must execute 'setup_xampp.bat'. The paths in the configuration files will be adjusted with this step.



If you have installed any server as Windows service, you must first remove the Windows service, and after the moving you can install the service again.



Warning:
The configuration files from your own scripts, like for the software phpBB, are not adjusted. This task is up to you. But it's possible to write a 'plug-in' the installer. With such a plug-in, the installer can adjust such files too..


Question 4: 'automatic start pages' for the WWW directories?


The standard filename for the Apache function 'DirectoryIndex' is 'index.html' or 'index.php'. Every time you are just browsing to a folder (e.g. 'http://localhost/xampp/'), and Apache can find such a file, Apache is displaying this file instead of a directory listing.



Question 5: Where can I change the configuration?


Almost all settings in XAMPP you can change with configuration files. Just open the file in a textedit and change the setting you want. Only FileZilla and Mercury should be configured with the application config tool.



A list of the configuration files you can find in the table configuration files.
