XAMPP was working --Joomla broke it?

Postby gregb » 10. May 2007 19:46


I installed XAMPP 1.6.1 and intro screen at localhost, myphp, everything was working fine.

I installed Joomla 1.0.12 and started working on a test site on my PC. Then I had a problem with Joomla, attempted to check out MySQL, PHP, et. al. and discovered the below when attempting to load localhost start page.

Can anyone tell me how to remedy this so I can use my XAMPP control panel at the start page?

Incidentally, the "problem" with Joomla was actually a personal firewall which blocked access to MySQL :roll: When I made a rule to permanantly allow it through, problem was resolved. So I did NOT need to mess around with the guts of ini files.

Thanks much,

More information.

I've tried to dig through the PHP though I am no programmer.

I do have lang.tmp in my root XAMPP directory.

I also have in the \xampp\lang a .php file for each of the languages (lang/-=&de=&en=&fr=&es=&jp=&nl=&pl=&no=&it=&zh=&pt_br)

Now, does this message mean that index.php is looking for these files in the D:\xampp\php\pear\ path?

I copied the lang.tmp file to the D:\xampp\php\pear\ and the \lang directory also, but it didn't help.

Would appreciate help!
