Hi Experts.

Im facing quite a peculiar error. Everything was working a few days ago. On a local install of XAMPP i am unable to access my phpmyadmin. It loads and loads in the browser hangs and after a real looong while it returns the following browser output

This web page is not available
The web page at might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Unknown error.

I really dont know what could be causing this. As a result all my php/mysql driven sites are not accessible however i can acess static sites via XAMPP.

BTW everything seems to start fine in the XAMPP Console. I have restarted the server a few time AND restarted the computer also. Still no dice

Thanks kalmax,

Thats not quite the problem im facing. See i can see the xampp home page. I can also access static sites. But sites made on wordpress or dyanmic sites using php or even mysql dont load at all. And neither does phpmyadmin!!.

This seems like apache is not aware of PHP / Mysql. Try to clear browser cache for a good start. Just to make sure, run xampp-portcheck located under xampp folder.

Ive run the portcheck. Nothing happened. Also have cleared the cache. What i have noticed that in the when clicking on the status link on the left hand side of the XAMPP homepage everything it shows is deactivated. ie PHP & MYSQL however on the XAMPP console both are running

Hmmm so confused

I know nothing's changed but could you doublecheck the security settings - I mean javascript especially and as a whole - isn't it changed ?

Try a simple page
<? phpinfo(); ?>
I suppose it does not output anything or outputs the text ?

Firstly, are you on a Mac or a PC?
What version XAMPP are you using?
What gets reported to the Apache logs?



I have come across this message before, reported by users of Google Chrome and certain anti-virus/phishing filters. Do either of these apply to you?

I apologise for the delayed response.

We resolved this as being some kind of server error. Totally uninstalled XAMPP and reinstalled it and it worked!
