I have an osc site up and running and I need to have a development area on my machine so I can refine the site without breaking the live site.
I have just downloaded and installed XAMPP as above and I am having some problems, to run osCommerce I had to switch to PHP 4 plus also set register_globals to On, this worked fine. I also setup a specific dbase and user just for osc.
I have been through the osc web-based install with no problems, all the dbase scripts run and everything seems fine, however when I go to use the site I get the following Windows error;
'Apache HTTP Server has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.'
I am running XP SP2 with all the latest security patches
At this point you cannot even browse to a normal html page and I have to stop and restart Apache via the XAMPP control panel.
Can anyone help? - Things where going so brilliantly - I must say that this one of the slickest + easiest pieces of software I have ever used! If I can get past this problem I will be very happy!
I have the dump file from the Windows error if this is of use.
Thanks in advance,
