Why do you need XAMPP to install Joomla if you already have Apache and Mysql installed and working all you need do is add a PHP install?SenorD wrote:I'd like to setup Joomla for a website project but need to install XAMPP for Windows XP pro, sp3.
XAMPP if installed has a TomCat addon but if you have TomCat already installed then I would assume you only need to do some configuration tweaks or simply install the TomCat addon after installing XAMPP and then use the addon.SenorD wrote:I read that xampp has apache, plus MySQL, PHP, Perl and Filezilla ftp already configured, but wondered whether it would mess up my current Apache-tomcat 5.5.16 and mySQL instalations, and want some advices before I start.
Then read them and try again to install them without XAMPP.SenorD wrote:I'm not too technical, but did manage to get apache n mySQL working last time while taking JSP class a couple of years ago. I dont remember how i did it, but I think I made notes about how I did it somewhere.
Not possible.SenorD wrote:Can I install XAMPP package over the exisiting apache n mySQL, and will it mess up the current configuration?
Any version does not have this feature as it is an integrated and configured package.SenorD wrote:if so, is there a xampp version that i can select to install only PHP, Perl and Filezilla? and can use the current config file? Again, the whole idea of installing XAMPP is to install Joomla for a website project.
Remove any other installed components you have already that are included in the XAMPP package and then install XAMPP and when it is installed and fully working install Joomla.Any tips appreciated.
Did you test XAMPP by going to http://localhost and running the demos?snehaparekh wrote:...i just installed xampp
No idea where you can get Joolmla from other than their site - download it again.snehaparekh wrote:..then i tried to install joomla from joomla.org.but when i completed my downloading..there were no archive files in that zip folder.i dont know what happened..would you please let me know any other site and procedure to download joomla..
No.snehaparekh wrote:i saved joomla at c:\programfiles\joomla\...will it be ok
You will have to explain what you mean in more detail as I have no idea what you are talking about - Joomla is Free Software.snehaparekh wrote:I have downloaded joomla from http://www.joomla.org/download.html.i tried to download 1.5.9 full package.but when i saved it into xampp folder and then opened it,it asks for "buy now"....
The only place I know is where you download your copy from, as I said in my post above.snehaparekh wrote:can you please give me any other link to download
