I decided to make a very simple form of guest book. With only one text area and no more
crap like fields for your email address, name or home page url. Just simple and plain as a real world guest book.
And also like a real guest book: HTML input is not allowed.
And a message to all guest book spammers: URLs in this guest book were automatically removed.
This is only a guest book. If you've questions or need support: Please visit our forum. We don't answer any questions here.
And please, for your own happiness: Don't leave your e-mail addresses in a public guest book. Spammers will love you.
I thank the people who started XAMPP a million times over each day. I run a small webhost and it wouldn't be possible without XAMPP. A few years ago, I'd gotten a few machines (dual core Xeons) but was struggling with setting the software up. Then I came along XAMPP. It made my life alot easier. Thanks. :)

No more Apache, PHP, MySQL + bundles of other stuff and doing the compile dance... works nice even with Solaris 10 Sparc!
For those with questions and problems..... try the Forums... Try the Forums...

Thank you for assembling this AIO, it is the answer I have been looking for in starting my personal home-network webserver. I plan on using it to learn on and then expand to the world. I've tried the separate installs, but have been unable to get mySQL to interface properly. Perhaps this will help!
Tue Oct 4 23:50:25 2005
wow, now if I can just get this to work on my web server
Tue Oct 4 21:13:35 2005
Very very very nice software to use.
I only use it as a test server for testing my PHP files. But it just works perfect :)
I'm very happy with it. I hope you will continue developing this kind of software :D

Hi! Thanks very much for this really useful and excellent collection of software. I can't say how much it helps me as a developer, and it's really good quality into the bargain.
Keep up the good work.

Hi ! Good product but I found some troubles for windows version. One is the imposibility to select wich is the working directory (localhost). Some programs let you choose that. An other is when calling an php scrips, such an counter, If I use the "require C:\Program Files\xampp\..." I receive errors. Reasons the link is interpreted as ""require C:\Program Files mpp\...". I found an solution, but is not very nice to use tricks, I think. Solution: "require C:\Program Files\\xampp\..."

Great job! Saves a *lot* of fscking about :o)
I like the idea for the guestbook. This is a way better way of doing things...
Though i see one problem... because the users haven't been frustrated and held up from typing their messages by the "Name: <TAB> Email: <TAB> Message" routine, they have way too much steam left when they hit this box, so they type big messages :-s
Wed Sep 14 17:01:37 2005
Looking forward to learning Apache, Linux and PHP.
Tue Sep 13 20:58:35 2005
Xampp is very helpful, thanks.
Sun Sep 11 11:33:35 2005
In a word? Fantastic.
Powerful enough to a live installation, quick enough to get your home machine up and running.
This is how I will distribute web apps in future!
Sun Sep 11 11:07:13 2005
Great job, thank you so much guys, i tried for a week to get my server up with all the independant instalations and too many outdated help files, an hour after downloading XAMPP i had my cpg nuke site online :) If you like you can check it out at
Sun Sep 11 02:18:01 2005
Hi all at XAMPP
Just to say thanks for an incredibly easy to use fantastic script that just worked. It beat trying to install it all from my distro which was inconsistent! Lovely to have something that does what it says without any hiccups at all!
Fri Sep 9 23:11:30 2005
Looks absolutely amazing! I will download it right away... I have read about it a bit, and i was referred by a friend here. Thank you for providing such a great program. Greetings from Macedonia!

Wed Sep 7 21:42:24 2005
just discovered it and it seams great.
could someone explain why the packages for the different OSes are so different?
Wed Sep 7 14:31:37 2005
What you are providing is a super service! I'm finding Zend Studio is tying nicly into XAMPP as well. When it all comes together this will make an awesome local web/mysql/php development environment.
HOWEVER (!) - there is alway a cloud to the silver lining: It seems that XAMPP .04 running under OS X 10.4.2 causes a hang on shutdown/restart of OS X. I've tried to combinations: starting, stoping and restarting XAMPP. Then I started and simply stopped XAMPP. In both cases when I would tell OSX to restart - it would go down to a blue screen and then just hang with a whirlling 'pinwheel' graphic.
I've waited as much as 10 minutes but the hang persisted. I have to press the reset button on the Sawtooth G4 to get the system to restart. I'm hoping there may be a fix for this in the near future -- it gives me some concern. Is XAMPP leaving something running that the system can't shut down? Has it broken anything? I think not -- but I must be cautious.
Hope all the best for this super package!

Bah alors les français vous dormez ? lol
Formidable distrib'. Une base debian simple + xampp et hop on a son serveur web !
Trés bon travail.
Merci beaucoup et bonne continuation ;-))
Mon Sep 5 21:17:08 2005
How can I make it so that people can access my server from different computers?
Also, XAMPP is great!
Sat Sep 3 00:45:55 2005
Thanks for all your hard work; XAMPP is awesome. I like it so much more than IIS.

I have problems installing my phpmyadmin gives me a error (The configuration file now needs a secret passphrase (blowfish_secret).) any ideals. I am running tiger...
any help please... thanks [EMAILHIDDEN]
Wed Aug 31 14:10:51 2005
XAMPP is an excellent tool for those with no experience with compiling/configuring Apache with the things XAMPP provides. Although I have a few minor gripes with it I must say a fantastic package. Nicely done.
Wed Aug 31 03:25:50 2005
i really like live-cd linux version (slax, klax), most of them excluded lampp package. Thank God there's xampp that is really good, no install, nodeps, no nothing!
Thank you guys!

Mon Aug 29 15:34:00 2005
XAMPP has made my life a lot easier. I spend less time fiddling with ocnfigs (I said LESS time) and more time actually working on my projects.
Thank you. Thank you.
Mon Aug 29 12:27:12 2005
Thanks so much for such a great package! I love the open source movement!

I was completly lost in the jungle of Apache, MySql and PHP. Thanks to Xammp I found my way out.
Keep up the good work. You're Xammpions for me!

Dit lijkt me inderdaad een aardig gastenboek.

wow. i love this package. it makes it so simple. i was having a hard time trying to get mysql and php working for apache on my win2k3 box and wasn't even going to bother with perl. i gave this a go, and had a fully working webserver in minutes. even the perl addon was simple. this certinly beats doing the install manually for mysql, php, etc...
i did try the ftp server and couldn't get it working. it says it was, but i couldn't log on with a user. thats the only problem i've had.
love the work guys, keep it up.

Hi, i'm from Poland, & i had problem with polish letters but i repair this.
In file name "httpd.conf" in row number 752 i change default charset from ISO-8859-1 to ISO-8859-2 & now is very good.

Great package. I installed it on my Tao Linux box just to try out. It worked so well I am going to be installing it on both my Tao Linux and Windows web servers for development. I noticed the Python, Tomcat, Cocoon, etc. add-ons for the Windows package and hope they will follow soon on the Linux version.
