Hi

I've installed XAMPP on windows 10

When I start the server I get the following errors (Same if Run as Admin)
Can I safely ignore these warnings, if not how do I resolve them?

the ssl related warnings are a concern. they mean example.com is not the CN of the SSL certificate which will likely produce a broken SSL config. if your external ip is www.example.com, this is ok. but unlikely. if you do not need SSL, don't bother.

At this point I'm using localhost and don't  have an external IP so no need for SSL !

So I can ignore this error?

You can resolve these warnings by...

1) If you actually own the example.com domain (unlikely) you generate a cert for this domain + use the cert.

2) You ignore the warnings, as they're meaningless + can be ignored.

3) You modify the related default SSL virtual hosts file, so that example.com is no longer referenced.

4) You disable the default SSL virtual hosts file.
Yes. Don t bother
