This is an old Topic so may be that newer information will be required - it's been a long time since I have seen this error message and I could not find any definitive permission solutions for a Windows installations but in Linux it would be a permission setting correction that would most likely help.
Are there any clues or a more detailed error message in the \xampp\apache\logs\error.log
file at about the date and time you last got the error message when trying to load the index.php file?
This is the relevant line in the php.ini file which is stock standard and the path is updated after installing XAMPP (when the setup_xampp.bat file is run either manually or during the automated install)
- Code: Select all
; Windows: "\path1;\path2"
include_path = ".;C:\xampp\php\PEAR"
I am not familiar with Mantis but I take it you mean the Mantis Bug Tracker - MantisBT?
If so, which version of MantisBT are you trying to use?
What version of XAMPP - important as the included php version may be at issue here?
From the requirements "Recommended version is PHP 5.2.x."http://docs.mantisbt.org/master/en/admi ... EQUIRMENTS
This may not be required if we can be assured that your current XAMPP version is working properly as it seems others have installed MantisBT on versions with PHP 5.3.x.
For your information and if required then the last XAMPP version with PHP 5.2.9 was 1.7.1 available from here:http://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/f ... ows/1.7.1/
This version may be the way to go xampp-win32-1.7.1.zip
and after extracting the xampp folder to the root of a drive like C: you would need to run the setup_xampp.bat file to set the correct paths...
...but first remember to uninstall any previous XAMPP versions by removing the ticks in any Svc
all components in the XAMPP Control Panel then EXIT
the XCP and delete the xampp folder after backing up your own files, databases and folders.
To establish if your current XAMPP version installation is working as it should try the following:
When you have the XAMPP Control Panel open does Apache and MySQL show the green running indication?
Remove any ticks in the Svc boxes and after answering the pop up questions make sure Apache and MySQL are started again and show the green running.
Can you access http://localhost
and see the orange pages of the XAMPP Welcome/Admin pages?
Can you exercise all the demos in the left hand menu and read the phpinfo() page without getting any errors?
You are also aware that MantisBT has a support forum here:http://www.mantisbt.org/forums/
I typed xampp in the forum search and found many results - you may have more time than I to dig through them for your error or simply try typing your error in the search box.
Now, if all else fails, and you would like to try an alternative method of installing XAMPP 1.7.4 that has been know to eliminate some strange issues with the automated installation method then look at this Topic for instruction, it also includes a link to the new XAMPP Control Panel version 3.viewtopic.php?p=181170#p181170
Chethan, good luck and best wishes.
