I would installed xampp in my system but when i try to run my localhost following message will appear "The server localshost:80 requires a username and password.please help
More to the point would be an explanation of the consequences of using or not using a password and account. For example, why does it look for a username and password for localhost? Who else will use the localhost server.
From observations of the network trying to break into the Apache Server, one would be well advised to keep off-line when using the local host or use Listen localhost:8080 in htpd.conf.
XAMPP has no passwords set by default.
and follow the directions.
