Localhost/myphpadmin not working

Keywords: WordPress - Windows - How to - Other
Description:
I don’t know if I deleted a file. I was trying to setup my wordpress bitnami to run multiple wordpress sites. I downloaded another wordpress zip to extract it in bitnami/wordpress 5.7-2/ apps/ wordpress/htdocs and seeing that it wasn’t working, because I could not get into myphp admin because I don’t remember setting up a login, I deleted the wordpress file I extracted. I am wondering if I deleted something. The bitnami wordpress I downloaded is working fine through the hosting service to get it live. If you need a picture of what I have left in my htdocs, let me know.

I enter localhost/myphpadmin on my browser(chrome, and edge)and this is what they keep saying below. Before, I could see the page to login. Now it show me what is below. I also want to login to myphpadmin but I don’t remeber setting up a login information. Can someone help me rectify this situation please. Grateful for the help.

Hi @beau.this6

Thanks for using Bitnami WordPress!

I was trying to setup my wordpress bitnami to run multiple wordpress sites.

What were you trying to do in order to achieve that? Just to mention that we also offer installers for WordPress Multisite, which allows you to do just what you need :slightly_smiling_face:

https://bitnami.com/stack/wordpress-multisite/installer

because I could not get into myphp admin because I don’t remember setting up a login, I deleted the wordpress file I extracted. The bitnami wordpress I downloaded is working fine …

So the main issue here is that phpmyAdmin is not working, right?

I enter localhost/myphpadmin on my browser(chrome, and edge)and this is what they keep saying below.

I think you are using a wrong URL, the correct one should be http://localhost/phpmyadmin Could you please check that?

I also want to login to myphpadmin but I don’t remeber setting up a login information. Can someone help me rectify this situation please. Grateful for the help.

Let’s first try to solve the issue accessing the site and then we’ll try to tackle the credentials one :slightly_smiling_face:

Could you please take a screenshot of the Manage Servers option in the Bitnami Manager tool? More information about it in:
https://docs.bitnami.com/installer/faq/windows-faq/administration/control-services-windows/


Additionally, we have a Support Tool that will gather relevant information for us to analyze your configuration and logs. Could you please execute it on the machine where the stack is running by following the steps described in the guide below?

Please note that you need to paste the code ID that is shown at the end.

Best regards,

i downloaded the regular bitnami wordpress. Then I was wondering how to have more than one wordpress site with different domain names. So I was watching a video(Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqkLZyjw0KM) and saw all I needed to do is download a wordpress package and get in myphpadmin and from there configure it to add another wordpress site. I only use Bitnami WordPress. I am not using xamp, wamp or any other.

I am not sure if I am correct. I watched a video stating for me to download and install the multisite bitnami, I have to delete the other bitnami I have. The only issue is that I am running a live site on it already. So can I get some instructions please. I don’t want to download so much stuff on my computer. What should I don?

I tried the URL you recommended(http://localhost/phpmyadmin) but getting the same result.

Here is the screenshot of the Manage Servers:

Hi again @beau.this6

Then I was wondering how to have more than one wordpress site with different domain names. So I was watching a video…

I am sorry but that video does not belong to any official guide bitnami provides :frowning: You can find official videos in the Bitnami channel on YouTube or you can refer to our guides at https://docs.bitnami.com/

I only use Bitnami WordPress. I am not using xamp, wamp or any other.

According to the log in your first post, it seems that at least you are running an IIS server on your machine. Do you recall installing or launching it? This application might since then interfered with the Bitnami WordPress stack. From the screenshot of the Manage Server tab you provided, the Apache Server is not running.

Let’s try the following and see if it works:

  1. From the same manage Servers tab, select Apache Web Server and click on Start.
  2. If everything works, the red dot should turn orange and then green.
    (A) If the dot has turned green, try to access the location I mentioned before again (http://localhost/phpmyadmin)
    (B) If the dot has turned red again, please provide a screenshot of the Server Events tab content.

I watched a video stating for me to download and install the multisite bitnami, I have to delete the other bitnami I have. The only issue is that I am running a live site on it already. So can I get some instructions please. I don’t want to download so much stuff on my computer. What should I don?

If you want to have multiple Wordpress blogs with different domains, the easiest, most straightforward way to do that is to use Bitnami WordPress Multisite, which offers this functionality out of the box

If you don’t mind losing your data and a short downtime on your live server, you may simply delete the previous installation and download the aforementioned stack. Would that be an option for you?

Yes I am running a IIS server. I am going to delete the bitnami and download the one you recommend. Could I upload my website back to wordpress, since I have backedup and download a copy of the website file? Do I have to reinstall all the plugins? Can I use the same logins for the wordpress or I have to make new logins? Is there anything important other than this I need to know? Thanks for the help @jcarmona

Will downloading a multisite bitnami wordpress fix the issue with why my apache web server not working? I would have to setup the new wordpress with my hosting company? Will the one they have automatically go away or I would have to delete all the files on the cpanel?

Hi @beau.this6

I am going to delete the bitnami and download the one you recommend.

Could I upload my website back to wordpress, since I have backedup and download a copy of the website file?

Please, make sure you have a working copy of all your important data before you actually delete the old stack. You can also stop all the running services from your current installation, download Bitnami WordPress Multisite, and install it in another location. Then, once you make sure everything works as expected, you may delete the unwanted files.

Yes, you should be able to follow this guide:
https://docs.bitnami.com/installer/apps/wordpress-multisite/administration/backup-restore-jetpack/

Do I have to reinstall all the plugins?

If you included the plugins in your back up, you would not need to reinstall them.

Can I use the same logins for the wordpress or I have to make new logins?

You will be asked for the details on the admin credentials to use at installation time. However, restoring the backup should also restore the ones you used before.

Will downloading a multisite bitnami wordpress fix the issue with why my apache web server not working?

I am not really sure about that. The webserver is not starting at the moment and it could be either due to improper config or to some external factors (for example, as you are running an IIS server as well, Apache might be trying to use the same port to listen to, which leads to failure)

I would have to setup the new wordpress with my hosting company? Will the one they have automatically go away or I would have to delete all the files on the cpanel?

I am unaware of how your application is currently deployed and hence cannot provide you with advice there. If you have another running instance in your hosting company and want to move that to multisite as well, you may need to perform changes. If your computer is actually the server hosting the site I don’t reckon you need to do important changes. In any case, this will highly depend on the case.

Where do I go to stop all the running services? the hosting services your talking or the mysql server?

tried to start it the process and some after I click the language setting. This is what shows up:

Where do I go to stop all the running services? the hosting services your talking or the mysql server?

You can stop all the running services of a Bitnami stack in Windows from the Bitnami Manager panel:
https://docs.bitnami.com/installer/faq/windows-faq/administration/control-services-windows/

tried to start it the process and some after I click the language setting. This is what shows up:

This is because some other application is already using that same port. Is your IIS server set to listen to that port?

If your regular Bitnami WordPress stack was configured to listen to that port too, that might be the reason that was preventing Apache to start up.

If you can’t change the IIS port to some other, I am afraid Bitnami WordPress Multisite won’t be a valid option for you. WordPress Multisite needs a valid domain (not an IP) to work properly. We configure a redirection to an nip.io domain in case you use an IP.

Can your IIS be set to some other port? In case it can’t, you may stick to the regular Bitnami WordPress stack, which can be configured on another port.

I finally got around changing my port for the IIS server from 80 to 8080 , but the apache port is still not starting and my mySQL server still running. When I stop both the mySQL server and try to run the apache, it stll doens’t run. I tap on configer and this is what shows up:

It shows port 81

Hi @beau.this6

Glad to hear you managed to change the IIS server port! From that floating panel, you can configure the port to which Apache binds. If you don’t have any other service running on that port, you can leave it to 81 if you like.

server and try to run the apache, it stll doens’t run

Can you please select the server from the list and click con ‘Start’? If it doesn’t work, it would be nice if you could share the contents of the ‘Server Events’ tab in the manager.

Additionally, we can try to run the server manually and see if that produces more logs. Open a new CMD window and run the following command:

C:\Bitnami\wordpress-5.7-2\apache2\bin\httpd.exe -f C:\Bitnami\wordpress-5.7-2\apache2\conf\httpd.conf

If the Apache server has any problem starting you should be able to see it upon executing the command. For example:

This is the output when some other application is currently using the same port.

This is what I got:

Hi @beau.this6

From the first screenshot you shared, it seems like the directory C:\Bitnami\wordpress-5.7-2\apache2\htdocs does not exist.

Could you please verify that? It’d be nice if you shared the content of both the C:\Bitnami\wordpress-5.7-2\apache2 and C:\Bitnami\wordpress-5.7-2\apache2\htdocs directories.

Best regards,
Jose Antonio Carmona

yes the directory C:\Bitnami\wordpress-5.7-2\apache2\htdocs does not exist.

This directories C:\Bitnami\wordpress-5.7-2\apache2\htdocs doesn’t exist either. The htdocs is here:

Hi!

The mentioned directory should exist as it contains the default landing page you see when the stack is installed.


The lack of this directory is preventing the Apache service from starting. In case you removed this folder, try to create a new empty folder named htdocs so that the C:\Bitnami\wordpress-5.7-2\apache2\ folder has the same structure as the one I shared in my first picture.

Next, open a new CMD window again and try to run the aforementioned command:

C:\Bitnami\wordpress-5.7-2\apache2\bin\httpd.exe -f C:\Bitnami\wordpress-5.7-2\apache2\conf\httpd.conf

If no error appears that means that we’re good to go and Apache is working! Verify that by accessing 127.0.0.1 in your browser:

Next, close the CMD window and start all services from the Bitnami WordPress Manager:

Screenshot 2021-05-27 at 13.28.49

You should be able to access Wordpress now by navigating to 127.0.0.1/wordpress in your browser

so the apache2 server is working. I don’t know how that htdocs was deleted. It is empty though. So this is what I see on the web browser:
