I'm a newbie with this. I have installed xampp and can get to it through localhost, but I can't get my joomla test site to show.
when i go to localhost/sitename i get a message saying:
" You are using a server with PHP 5.3 outputting errors to the browser and reporting Strict Standards warnings. This combination does not allow Joomla' and its extensions to run properly. Most likely, you are using xampp released after januaryy 2011. You have the following options:
1. Edit your php.ini file and change the following lines:
2. INstall Zend Server CE with php 5.2, xampp 1.6.4 or any other server environment with php 5.2 )
So, I'm not sure if i found the right php file. It opens up as 'php notepad'. I can't seem to find anything I can open called php.ini other than that. I do find text that reflects what is written above but I'm not sure if i changed it correctly.
Is this where my problem is?
Can someone help a newbie who is about to rip her hair out? Thanks
