This issue has been around for some time in older XAMPP versions and it appears to have been eliminated in the newer versions but there was never a definitive answer that I could find when it was a frequent post on the forums.
Consider that Wordpress 2.8.6 Dashboard, plug-ins etc. may not be backward compatible with your older version of PHP and is maybe why it's working in XAMPP 1.7.2 version that has PHP 5.3.0.
Here are some of the solutions that had positive results for some but not all.
1. Check in your xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf
file, down near the end of the file for these 2 entries that should look like this - if not change them:EnableMMAP off
Also add this if it is not there right at the end of the file:Win32DisableAcceptEx
Save the file and restart Apache, then test for the issue again - always make a backup of *.conf and *.ini files before editing.
2. Make sure you only have those extension you require uncommented in your xampp\apache\bin\php.ini
file - all extensions uncommented can cause strange issues.
3. Some had success by copying the php5ts.dll
file from the \xampp\apache\bin
folder into your C:\Windows\system32
folder then, after booting your PC, test for the issue again.
4. Another claimed to have had success by enabling this extension in the \xampp\apache\bin\php.ini
- Code: Select all
remove the comment character ;
from the beginning of the line, then save the file and restart Apache and test for the issue again - but as always make a backup copy of any *.ini or *.conf file before editing and use a text
editor when editing.
5. This fix seems to have worked for many:http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=44645
Rename the file \xampp\mysql\bin\libmysql.dll
which in effect causes the file in the \xampp\apache\bin
folder to be used - restart Apache and MySQL and test again for the issue.
You can try any of the above fixes one at a time then test after each and see which, if any, fixes your issue.
If you find one, then I would appreciate a post back with which one did the trick for you.
To save you some time, there appears to be no help, that I could find, from over at the Wordpress.org forums on this subject, except the reference to backward incompatibility with older PHP versions.
A search here in the XAMPP For Windows
forum using php5ts
as the keyword will give you results that will verify what I have posted above in condensed form.
And finally, if you can't solve the riddle of the php5ts.dll issue, you may have to upgrade your Wordpress, as recommended by their web site, to the latest version 2.9.1 to keep up to date with any security fixes they have incorporated.
The same would apply with XAMPP as now the version is 1.7.3 with PHP 5.3.1 and the developers always seem to keep abreast of any major component changes and security updates.
