I have set up a Joomla development platform on my laptop using XAMPP, which is new to me.
I am not skilled in HTML,PHP,CSS etc. but can interpret it enough to get by - I am comfortable in a Joomla environment..
I have restored an Akeeba backup to the XAMPP site, using Kickstart – I have used the same restore to recently move this minimal site to a new host, without any problems.
However, when I go to the site under XAMPP I get a series of WARNING messages, which I have no idea how to resolve.
The first screenshot attached shows the home page, with the top menu missing – replaced by the warning message.
The second screenshot shows a series of warning messages which I get when I go to the Backend Global Configuration screen.
I have been advised to change the php.ini config file to suppress error display, which I have tried, but it doesn't solve the problem.
I am using a dropdown menu module from the JED called mod_superfishmenu, which works fine on the production site - visit http://www.qestel.com.au
As the same Kickstart restore is OK on the live site, the problem must be with XAMPP.
Can anybody please shed some light on the possible cause and solution - this has become urgent..
Many thanks in advance.
