I recently performed my first ever install of Xampp (1.7.2) using the excellent instructions on this site and then added Drupal 6.13 as well. When I try to access the Drupal page (to run the install) I get an error stating "Deprecated: Function ereg() is deprecated in /opt/lampp/htdocs/drupal-6.13/includes/file.inc on line 895"
I've googled this error and the only suggestion I have found (on CreativeBushido) is that there is an issue between xampp 1.7.2 and Drupal 6.13 and that if I revert to 1.7.1 and 6.12 the problem should go away.
So my noob question is how do I uninstall these two in order to install the older versions? Is there a preferred clean uninstall option or can I just delete the folders?
Better still can someone tell me that the issue is easily fixed by some simple conf file change and I don't need to reinstall at all?
thanks for your help
