access xampp with avast 1.0 Mac
« on: May 30, 2011, 12:57:13 PM »
Hi,
im trying to access my xampp server.
Via localhost i get access, but if im trying to connect via vhost address like test.tld i cant get any connection.
If i am disable the web shield everything is working fine.
Is there a possibility to configure avast.

Thanks for any suggestion.

Uli

Is there a possibility to configure avast.

You can configure the webshield using the network proxy configuration file
Code: [Select]
/Library/Application Support/Avast/com.avast.proxyclient.conf
Changing the port of the HTTP shield to another port than the default 80 (which is most likely used by your web server) should solve your problem. Just add the entry

Code: [Select]
PORT = 8080
to the http module section

The Port changing solved the problem :)
