I just installed the latest version of XAMPP on my Windows 7 and I have a problem concerning symbolic links: I usually don't store my websites in the htdocs folder directly, but in a separate folder outside the xampp folder; then I place symbolic links to these folders in the htdocs folder. This worked perfectly on Windows Vista. On Windows 7, however, it doesn't. It works for html files, but not for php files. If I attempt to open a php file, it gives me the following error:
- Code: Select all
Warning: Unknown: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0
Fatal error: Unknown: Failed opening required 'ABSOLUTE PATH TO THE FILE I TRYED TO OPEN GOES HERE' (include_path='.;D:\xampp\php\PEAR') in Unknown on line 0
This even happens if there is no php code in the file. And the same happens with junctions as well. Any idea why this isn't working anymore? I'm at a loss... Thanks in advance.
