XAMPP 8.0.12 is not working in MacOS Monterey vs(12.0.1)

Postby Jony34 » 23. November 2021 18:26

Xampp (8.0.12 installer.dmg) is not working anymore in MacOS Monterey version (12.0.1), this has started when i have upgraded mine MacOS Big Sur vs(11) to the new OS version of MacOS Monterey 12.0.1 intel.
I can start the application XAMPP and it shows that the "Apache web server(PHP 8.0.12) is running Green", but when i open my code editor(VS/Atom) and try to printout/display the PHP file(s) into the browser it does not show up, it's not displayed. Instead I'm getting these Error messages like:
* IDE-PHP could not launch your PHP run time.
* No PHP interpreter found at php.
* PHP Server could not launch.
* Server is not running.
* Cannot validate since a PHP installation could not be found.
But the phpMyAdmin(MySQL) database is working Fine without problems! i can open it. So the problem seems to be only with the php server interpreter/translator and it's connection.
I have tried to solve the problem myself by reinstalling MacOS Monterey and Xampp and code editor, but it did not work either. i have tried also many other things like changing the Port number, but still it did not work. I even searched Google for an answer on the internet, but nothing only more people complaining and having the same problem as i have, without any answers/solutions.
Finally i have contacted the Apple support center and they told me that issue/problem is of 'Compatibility' between there new OS Monterey and third party applications, and it's up to other third party applications like XAMPP and MAMP to come up with a software patch/update for there applications to be compatible.
So now i have two questions:
1- Does anyone have a permanent and good solution for this ?
2- Is XAMPP going to release a new software patch or Update soon for this problem?

Do not install the VM Version of Xampp. This installs into a VirtualMachine, which explains all your troubles.

There is also a native OSX Xampp Version, the download size is approx. half the size of the VM versions. Proceed to Xampp download and pick the installer of your needs. The VM Versions also have an "vm" Token in the name of the installer.

I think you simply have to add the Xampp Path for php (somewhere in /Applications/Xampp/....) to the PATH variable of your system. I do not have a Mac, cannot check on myself, but obviously the binary "php" is searched (and not found, due to PATH setting).

it didn't work either, the problem is not the path but rather that the new Mac operating system Monterey doesn't support php server anymore. it's bad news!
some people are talking about using:
Homebrew https://brew.sh/
or
