Does XAMPP include MySQL or MariaDB?

Since XAMPP 5.5.30 and 5.6.14, XAMPP ships MariaDB instead of MySQL. The commands and tools are the same for both.

Comment lancer XAMMP ?

To start XAMPP:

  • Launch the stack manager by double-clicking the XAMPP icon in the mounted disk image.
  • Click the "Start" button in the "General" tab of the stack manager.
  • Once the status icon turns green, navigate to the "Services" tab and start Apache, MySQL and any other available services.
  • Navigate to the "Network" tab and enable port forwarding (port 80 of the stack to port 8080 of the host system) over SSH.
Stopper XAMPP ?

To stop XAMPP, click the "Stop" button in the "General" tab of the stack manager. Once the status icon turns red, close the stack manager window.

Comment tester si tout a fonctionné ?

Verify that you have enabled port forwarding (from port 80 of the stack to port 8080 of the host system) in the "Network" tab of the stack manager and type the following URL in a web browser:

http://localhost:8080

You should see the XAMPP start page, as shown below.

XAMPP destiné à la production?

XAMPP est destiné exclusivement aux développeurs. La manière dont XAMPP est configuré donne un maximum de libertés en cours de développement. Ceci permet de gagner du temps en phase de développement, mais peut être fatal en environnement de production.

Liste des trous de sécurité dans XAMPP:

  1. L'administrateur MySQL (root) sans mot de passe.
  2. Le démon MySQL est accessible via le réseau.
  3. ProFTPD utilise le mot de passe "lampp" pour l'utilisateur "daemon".
To fix most of the security weaknesses:
  • Launch the stack manager by double-clicking the XAMPP icon in the mounted disk image.
  • Ensure that all services are running in the "Services" tab of the stack manager (or start them as needed).
  • Open a new terminal from the "General" tab of the stack manager and run the following command in it:

    /opt/lampp/lampp security

Cela lancera une petite vérification pour sécuriser l'installation de XAMPP.
Apache doesn't seem to start. What can I do?

Cette erreur peut avoir plusieurs causes. Apache affiche cette erreur dans plusieurs situations. Pour trouver la cause exacte, faisons quelques recherches :

  • Launch the stack manager by double-clicking the XAMPP icon in the mounted disk image.

How do I copy files to the Apache server document root?

To copy files from the host system to the XAMPP Apache server document root, follow these steps:

  • Launch the stack manager by double-clicking the XAMPP icon in the mounted disk image.
  • Mount the /opt/lampp directory from the "Volumes" tab of the stack manager and click the "Explore" button to open the file manager.
  • Navigate to the /opt/lampp/htdocs directory in the file manager. This directory is the XAMPP Apache server document root. Copy files to it from the host system using the file manager in the usual way.
How do I access phpMyAdmin from the host system?

To access phpMyAdmin from the host system, follow these steps:

  • Launch the stack manager by double-clicking the XAMPP icon in the mounted disk image.
  • Ensure that all services are running in the "Services" tab of the stack manager (or start them as needed).
  • Navigate to the "Network" tab and ensure that port forwarding (port 80 of the stack to port 8080 of the host system) over SSH is enabled.
  • Browse to http://localhost:8080/phpmyadmin to access phpMyAdmin.

If you see an "Access denied" error, ensure that your phpMyAdmin configuration correctly reflects your MySQL credentials.

How do I enable access to phpMyAdmin from the outside?

In the basic configuration of XAMPP, phpMyAdmin is accessible only from the host system via a secure tunnel, at http://127.0.0.1:8080/phpmyadmin or http://localhost:8080/phpmyadmin.

IMPORTANT: Enabling external access for phpMyAdmin in production environments is a significant security risk. You are strongly advised to only allow access from localhost. A remote attacker could take advantage of any existing vulnerability for executing code or for modifying your data.

To enable remote access to phpMyAdmin, follow these steps:
  • Edit the /opt/lampp/etc/extra/httpd-xampp.conf file.
  • Within this file, find the lines below.

    Alias /phpmyadmin "/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin/" <Directory "/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin"> AllowOverride AuthConfig Require local

  • Then replace 'Require local' with 'Require all granted'.
  • Alias /phpmyadmin "/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin/" <Directory "/opt/lampp/phpMyAdmin"> AllowOverride AuthConfig Require all granted

  • Save the file and restart the Apache service using the stack manager.
Sauvegarder/Restaurer mon système XAMPP ?

Attention: La fonction sauvegarde/restauration est en développement et pourrait dysfonctionner.

You can create the backup as follows:

  • Launch the stack manager by double-clicking the XAMPP icon in the mounted disk image.
  • Ensure that all services are running in the "Services" tab of the stack manager (or start them as needed).
  • Open a new terminal from the "General" tab of the stack manager and run the following command in it:

    /opt/lampp/lampp backup

    ou

    /opt/lampp/lampp backup secret

    Quand "secret" est le mot de passe root pour MySQL. Cette commande fera cette sortie:

    Backing up databases...
    Backing up configuration, log and htdocs files...
    Calculating checksums...
    Building final backup file...
    Backup finished.
    Take care of /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/backup/xampp-backup-22-01-14.sh

    Le fichier avec vos données de sauvegarde est /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/backup/xampp-backup-22-01-14.sh (de l'exemple ci-dessus). Placez-le à endroit sûr.
  • Mount the /opt/lampp directory from the "Volumes" tab of the stack manager and click the "Explore" button to open the file manager.
  • Move the backup file to a safe place on the host system.

To restore the backup on a new system, you need the same version of XAMPP as on your original/source system. Follow these steps to restore the backup:

  • Launch the stack manager by double-clicking the XAMPP icon in the mounted disk image.
  • Ensure that all services are running in the "Services" tab of the stack manager (or start them as needed).
  • Mount the /opt/lampp directory from the "Volumes" tab of the stack manager and click the "Explore" button to open the file manager.
  • Copy the backup file from the host system to the mounted directory.
  • Open a new terminal from the "General" tab of the stack manager, change to the directory containing the backup file and run the following command (change the file name in the command to reflect the actual backup file name):

    ./xampp-backup-22-01-14.sh

    Vous devriez voir quelques chose comme ceci:

    Checking integrity of files... Restoring configuration, log and htdocs files... Checking versions... Installed: XAMPP 1.4.2 Backup from: XAMPP 1.4.2 Restoring MySQL databases... Restoring MySQL user databases... Backup complete. Have fun! You may need to restart XAMPP to complete the restore
