  1. When installing WordPress during the second step of the installation msmtp.exe is trying to connect to IP on Port 25 this being tiscali.co.uk. What does tiscali.co.uk have to do with my local WordPress development environment and installation process please?
  2. and connecting on port 443. This now happens when opening phpMyAdmin. I assume this is to check if phpMyAdmin has the latest version running. These IPs are all on CDN77.COM, so I assume this can be ALLOWED. Would be good to let users know that phpMyAdmin will try and check. Sure not everyone is super cautions etc but the people that are like to know what is going on. And yes after allowing the connection attempt once this message came up. Thank you.
  3. You are right, the DNS does not accept it because you might have to flush the DNS cache http://www.wikihow.com/Flush-DNS or edit the HOST file with another editor or this TLD is reserved. For example the .dev TLD cannot be used any more since now there are offically .dev domains to buy and unless you have it in your HOSTS file as well as in your VirtualHost file it won't work and then it will also throw you errors. If you check the dnscache and get this it has to do with this info from icann. https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-2-2014-08-01-en C:\Windows\system32>ipconfig /displaydns Windows IP Configuration 1.dev ---------------------------------------- Record Name . . . . . : 1.dev Record Type . . . . . : 1 Time To Live . . . . : 3522 Data Length . . . . . : 4 Section . . . . . . . : Answer A (Host) Record . . . : So this might also apply to your case trying to use the TLD .info. Try flushing the DNS cache. Use HostsMan, it is free and available here: http://www.abelhadigital.com/hostsman
  4. Ok I fixed the permission error by simply deleting the conditional APACHE24 command. Now the httpd-vhosts.conf file looks like this. <VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot "D:/WEB PROJECTS/WWW" ServerName work.webdev ServerAlias www.work.webdev <Directory "D:/WEB PROJECTS/WWW"> AllowOverride all Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Require local Require ip 192.168.188 Order Deny,Allow Deny from all Allow from localhost ::1 192.168.188 </Directory> </VirtualHost> However, does this really make sure that only IP as well as all IPs on the local network starting with 192.168.188... are allowed to access root? Are my commands for the httpd-vhosts.conf file correct like this or are these access permission settings wrong? Thank you for confirming this.
  5. This sould be easy to correct but since I am not handy with the Apache httpd-vhosts.conf commands I would be super happy about some quick help. My original httpd-vhosts.conf file from a previous development environment looks like this. <VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot "D:/WEB PROJECTS/WWW" ServerName work.webdev ServerAlias www.work.webdev <Directory "D:/WEB PROJECTS/WWW"> AllowOverride all Options Indexes FollowSymLinks <IfDefine APACHE24> Require local Require ip 192.168.188 </IfDefine> <IfDefine !APACHE24> Order Deny,Allow Deny from all Allow from localhost ::1 192.168.188 </IfDefine> </Directory> </VirtualHost> When I, instead of using <IfDefine APACHE24> Require local Require ip 192.168.188 </IfDefine> <IfDefine !APACHE24> Order Deny,Allow Deny from all Allow from localhost ::1 192.168.188 </IfDefine> simply use AllowOverride all Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Require all granted I can access the root and all my projects fine. However I would like to restrict access to these projects to IP localhost "" as well as to IPs on the local network starting with "192.168.188....". How would I have to write this for Uniform Server ZeroXI to accept this please? I assume this line is the culprit. <IfDefine APACHE24> Any help with this is much appreciated. Thank you.
  6. I assume this is done to either check who/what IP installed Unisform Server ZeroXI OR to check if updates for the installted modules are available. Since the installed modules can be updated and selected individuallym the purpose of the portable install, I assume this is to give information about the user's IP. http://ip-lookup.net/index.php did not reap any results for! Related IP adresses No response !... IP owner info (Whois) No response !... Domain owner info (Whois / Abuse) No data available... Not something I like in particular. Using a VPN I am fine, you can have my ever changing VPN IP if you like, though other, novice users might think this IP should be allowed since it connects to a secure port et violĂ  their IP is given to you without telling them that you collect such information. Heads up people, if you are concerned with your privacy you can safely block httpd_z.exe from connecting to on port 443. If this has something to do with updates or nececarry connections to actually USE Uniform Server please do let me know. Not hearing back about this for me means this is done to collect user data and will be kept on block.
  7. Gosh the documentation for ZeroXI can only be found once opening UniController.exe. Nowhere in the Wiki does it mention that the documentation is actually packed inside the program. Or does it mention this somewhere in the Wiki and overread it? How can I add "The documentation and manual for ZeroXI can be found once UniController.exe is running. Simply open the GUI and click on "Documentation". under the section Series ZeroXI (11): 100% A REDESIGN, with interchangeable parts?? Can someone add this to the Wiki please? Do you think it is worth adding this? As you can see from my errors other users might also make these mistakes. If you think this is such a silly error and not worth thinking about, fine, I don't mind, though adding it a little note about this in the Wiki wouldn't hurt I find. What a start...
  8. The bold font under Series 8-Coral: 100% READ THIS FIRST! and obviously the "Read This First" etc was what tricked me into reading the manual for Coral while having downloaded and extracted ZeroXI. Great start on my behalf.. though since I could not find a manual under ZeroXI and there is a link for a manual under Coral I followed that link. I guess I assumed that is the manual for the latest version. Is there a manual for ZeroXI or a Quick Start guide for ZeroXI, like there is for Coral? If there is, can someone link me to it please? Thank you.
  9. Hi folks and fellow Uniform Server users Been looking for a portable WAMP stack and decided for Uniform Server today for some local and portable WordPress development. 1- Downloaded the as of today's date latest EXE from here http://sourceforge.net/projects/miniserver/files/Uniform%20Server%20ZeroXI/11_7_8_ZeroXI/ . 2- Started reading the Series 8-Coral: 100% READ THIS FIRST! --> DETAILED documentation (Yeah, even those of you who don't read manuals!) from here http://wiki.uniformserver.com/index.php/Main_Page . 3 -From there was lead to the Quick Start guide here http://wiki.uniformserver.com/index.php/Coral:_start_quick_start . 4- Arriving at the Quick Start guide it says as 2nd point under A) Locate the file Start_as_program.exe . So where is this EXE please? If the program has changed would someone taking care of the wiki please be so kind and update this to reflect the latest changes? I find such things extremely important as new users without experience that actually read the manual will be confused and likely judge the rest of the stack as "bad" if the wiki is not up to date. It is such little things that sometimes cause people loosing time and interest in using products. I for example could already be tweaking settings or the Virtual Hosts instead of coming to the forum and posting all this. If indeed there is a Start_as_program.exe please let me know where I can find it and disregard my request to update the wiki, thank you. Please don't take my request or question bad or personal, I am merely trying to be helpful by pointing out a sort of dead end following the manual given on the wiki. Sorry to be such a nuisance with my first post here. Any help is highly appreciated, thank you all.
