Clean XAMPP installation: how to? [Answered]

Postby samclauw » 21. August 2011 20:36

Hello everybody,

I'm using XAMPP a couple of years now, but it seems my installation is not 100% correct. I've met the problem when I tried to install Zend Framework. It looks like php.exe don't exists when I do the commend "zf show version". And yes, I've set an extra path variable in my computer system setting to: ";C:\Program Files\ZendFrameworkCli\bin"

Now I want to be sure what's the best way to install XAMPP in a proper way. I downloaded the zip file from the XAMPP website and unzipped the complete folder. Then I have directly a first question: what's the best location to put the xampp folder in:

- C:\
- C:\Program Files
- C:\Program Files (x86) -> I have Windows 7 (64 bit)

After choosing a folder, I know I should run the file "xampp-control.exe". After that, the deed should be done, but I guess it wasn't thad good as it first seems. What did I do wrong? Is it good to set the document root to D:\Websites? If I do so, the Apache admin page is not longer available from http://localhost... :(

Thanks for your support!

XAMMP cannot be installed in Folder names with special characters, that example contains two exceptions: the 'space' and the parentheses.

I'm quite unsure if you will be able to run the current Zend Framework with XAMMP. I researched this (and other things Zend) before and concluded it was not compatible, but I'll defer to others as I use a different framework.

if you had searched this forum the "A" answer has been posted dozens (at a minimum) of times. :shock:

Good Luck

Mainly the Zend Framework can be used with XAMPP 1.7.4. It requires PHP 5.2.4 or higher.
Which components of the framework can be used is strongly dependend on the active modules.

A full list can be found here => http://framework.zend.com/manual/en/req ... extensions
