xampp 3.2.4 The First Style Block won't work [solved]

Postby edoc » 28. February 2020 17:59

When I installed xampp I received no errors; however, when I ran apache and mySQL
I had an error missing dll AND the missing file was in the e:\xampp directory
online someone said copy libsqlite3.dll to c:\windows\system32 which I did.
And the popup error is gone; however, mySQL take 30 seconds to get data, is that slow or

MariaDB - MySQL
I just downloaded xampp for windows on my windows 7 machine and MariaDB - MySQL
didn't work as expected, there was always a style block in my styles.css that didn't work.
There were lots that did work, but there was something that didn't work, and since
I am new to mySQL and styles, this made learning very hard and frustrating.

When I clicked the help button this url
didn't work
so I had to use duckduckgo to find this forum.

Thinking that it might be a conflict with MS SQL;
I un-installed my visual studio paid version, and still some styles wouldn't work!

After 20 minutes of head banging, I believe I figured it out, this is the fix

Code: Select all
<style type="text/css">
  This h6 is a fake placeholder; as the first code block
  does not work with xampp.
  If you want a h6 must make another one.
  h6 {
    color: purple; /* THIS DOES NOT WORK */
    background: #cbb09c !important;
    color: #cbb09c !important;
    max-width: 460px;
    margin: 20px auto;
    padding: 20px;

I hope this helps.

The problem is always here in xampp-windows-x64-7.4.14-0-VC15 and other I think.

In \xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-xampp.conf

LoadModule php7_module "/xampp/php/php7apache2_4.dll"

Add after:
LoadFile "/xampp/php/libsqlite3.dll"

Restart Apache, it works.
