I just installed XAMPP 1.7.4 on Windows 7 and received the "status check failure 3" prompt in the control panel. Despite the "status check failure 3" I can still run the myPHPadmin, set up a database and set up the localhost and pull up the local host by typing it in my URL.
I use dreamweaver CS5 and am trying to integrate wordpress with it and using XAMPP as a testing server. I have followed two different tutorials step by step that deal with the installation of Wordpress and XAMPP as a tester.
Everytime I go to install wordpress(the last step) I get a message that my PHP is not running or it isn't installed or it's turned off. It is running and I have it installed.
Can anyone tell me if this has to do with the "status check failure 3"?
I am new at this and have been able to find a great deal of info but honestly I am at an impasse on this. Thank you for any suggestions.
