Setup.bat produces "Sorry ... cannot find php cli!"
This has been an issue with the last few versions of XAMMP i've downloaded. It will not install apache or msql as services, either as running the installer or extracting the ZIP and running setup.bat. The server is running a clean install of XP SP2 Pro, fully updated with the XP firewall (port checker is clean) and avg free edition.
I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get XAMMP to install Apache or mySQL. The batch files all seem to point to the right files & i've re-downloaded the file to be sure.
I can install this fine on my workstation, and my laptop (both XP Pro SP2) so could it be a case for dumping XP Pro and moving to Win2003?
There are other posts on this, but my german is terrible and they don't seem to be conclusive.
I have managed to get Net Server (http://netserver.hugosoft.net) to work fine (the "manage server" feature is a nice extra BTW guys), so it seems to be an issue with the XAMMP package itself.
If your not sure a specific answer but know of a good guides for general apache/php/mysql server setups (both n00bish and detailed, both are good), drop it in the thread.
