Hi,

We just released a new version, 7.1.7, that fixes an issue uncompressing files into the XAMPP-VM mounted folder. Could you remove the ~/.bitnami folder to remove the previous VM and download the new version? Please post if this new version works for you.

The folder is in your /Users/<name> folder but it is hidden. You can remove it from a Terminal
Code: Select all
rm -rf ~/.bitnami

Hello, I have the same problem, but I reinstall the Xampp and work, but How I can recover the files? For example the htdocs files?

I stumbled upon this thread last night, and learned that it was because I had used CHMOD 777, which unfortunately broke XAMPP.

So wanted to share how I 'solved' this (rescued my files) without having a recent Time Machine backup in case it might be helpful for others.

Step 1:
Copy the virtual XAMPP machine (machine.qcow2) in terminal

‘$ cd .bitnami/stackman/machines/xampp/vm’

Now '$ open .' and move the 'machine.qcow2' file to e.g. downloads.

Step 2:
Delete the .bitnami folder.

Step 3:
Delete and re-install XAMPP.

Step 4:
Launch XAMPP and mount the image, then move machine.qcow2 file into '/opt/lamp/htdocs' using Finder.

Step 5:
Install qemu-utils and p7zip-full

'$ sudo apt-get install qemu-utils'
'$ sudo apt-get install p7zip-full'

Step 6:
Go into the 'htdocs' directory and convert machine.qcow2 to machine.iso with qemu

'$ cd /opt/lampp/htdocs'
'$ qemu-img convert image.qcow2 image.iso'

Step 7:
'Unzip' the .iso file

'$ 7z x image.iso'

That's it! If you '$ ls' now, you'll see your old files!

I then used 7z to make a Zip-backup folder with the old files, moved the 7z to my desktop, deleted and re-installed XAMPP. Cleared the new 'htdocs' and unzipped the file again.

This took me about half a night to figure out, so hopefully it will be useful for someone!
