Xampp seems to work but donwload

Postby Valenedian » 06. December 2006 16:46


I download Xampp 0.6A on my macbook.
I install and all seem to be correct. Xampp start with no error message but when I wrote the address http://localhost/xampp.
http://localhost/xampp/splash.php open, I click on language links, and my navigator ask me to download the files instead of printing them.

I don't have any idee where the problem comes from.

Do somebody have one? :roll:

Did you follow the install instructions on the macosx page? Many Mac users (among me) are so familiar with the drag-and-drop principle that they tend to forget exact instructions and just drag-and-drop the xampp folder to applications, while this will break all file permissions and cause xampp to malfunction.

You should issue these commands to install xampp:

Installation requires an admin account.
# Enter „sudo su“. You will be prompted for a password.
# tar xfvz xampp-macosx-0.6a.tar.gz -C /

the first time, I make a drag and drop

But I when I read the installation notice I tried the command line. But my last version of xampp was here.

I tried as you said but I put the last version into trash
and it works.

Thanks for your answer
Have a nice day
