XAMPP Control Panel Status Not Displaying

Postby rijo6920 » 13. September 2011 03:13

I have searched every conceivable topic in the forum and I cannot find any information for the probelm I am having. Can anyone help get me going again.

A few days agoI completed an update on my localhost running WindowsXP from XAMPP 1.6.8 to XAMPP 1.7.4. I used the installer to successfully install 1.7.4. The services for Apache and MySQL started up successfully. However, on the XAMPP Control Panel, when clicking on "Status", I get the following messages:

Warning: include(lang/.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampp\htdocs\xampp\status.php on line 11
Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening 'lang/.php' for inclusion (include_path='.;C:\xampp\php\PEAR') in C:\xampp\htdocs\xampp\status.php on line 11

Notice: Undefined variable: TEXT in C:\xampp\htdocs\xampp\status.php on line 100

Also, In the C:\xampp\apache\logs\error.log file I get the following error messages:

[error] PHP Warning: include(lang/.php) [<a href='function.include'>function.include</a>]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\\xampp\\htdocs\\xampp\\status.php on line 11, referer: http://localhost/xampp/navi.php

I also get the following when attempting to access my existing website:

How exactly did you do this "update"?

Did you completely uninstall 1.6.8 including deleting the 1.6.8 xampp folder before installing 1.7.4?

I ran the XAMPP uninstall to completely uninstall 1.6.8, but did not delete the entire directory. I installed 1.7.4 into the existing directory after the install completed. I kept the MySQL folder with my data and the htdocs folder containing my existing joomla website.

You should have deleted the xampp folder of 1.6.8 after backing up your own MySQL data folders and your own files in the htdocs folder not any complete 1.6.8 folders - using phpMyAdmin will help with exporting your own databases for subsequent importing into a successful 1.7.4 install.

Here is a post with methodology for uninstalling and then using the ZIP method of installing 1.7.4
viewtopic.php?p=179699#p179699

You have installed 1.7.4 over existing 1.6.8 files and folders which will give many errors similar to those you are currently experiencing.

Good luck.

Thank you, Sharley. :D
I deleted the entire xampp folder and reinstalled and now I get the Status information correctly. I did keep a backup the 1.6.8 XAMPP containing mysql\data and htdocs directories. I copied these to their respective directories in the 1.7.4 XAMPP structure after the install. Is this a good idea? I still get the "Strict Standards" errors when accessing my Joomla website.

It may be that your Joomla version is not compatible with PHP in 1.7.4.

So you may need to also upgrade your Joomla version - check their web site for compatibility issues associated with various PHP versions.

The component versions included in XAMPP can be found in the readme_en.txt file in the xampp folder.

Yep, you are correct. I forgot that my next step is to upgrade my Joomla version. That's the whole reason I updated my XAMPP apps to be compatible with the Joomla upgrade. Thanks so much for your help. Now, I think I'm back on track. :D

For future reference and as a general rule for others reading this topic, unless there is a specific upgrade version released on the XAMPP for Windows home page then it is advisable to always backup your personal data and then uninstall by which ever method mentioned on the home page then finally making sure that the previous version's xampp folder is completely deleted before attempting to install a newer version.

Good luck and best wishes. :D

btw: Joomla is known as one webapplication that gives out Strict Standard messages even on current versions.
It's not an error message it's something like a hint for the programmers to keep an eye on in future development.

To get rid of them, change your error_reporting level in your php.ini from
Code: Select all
error_reporting = E_ALL | E_STRICT


to
Code: Select all
error_reporting = E_ALL
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

It's like porn for programmers 8)
