Having problem on configuration of Xampp in my Mac

Postby Westy » 22. November 2010 07:50

Hello my Friend out there.
Can anyone advised me on what to do. I just install fresh Xampp in my Mac machine, the local host is running and after starting all the program Aparche, MySQl and PHP, my local host (http://localhost/xampp) displays the Xampp page, but I am trying to install Joomla template to use and was not going through, it was not displaying in my browser, I have already downloaded Joomla (Joomla_1.6-Beta13-Full_Package.zip), I have pasted it in my Application/Xampp/htdocs/ - unzipped it and i have rename it to (westsite1).

But to my greatest surprised, the template did not display, there I cannot install the joomla template.
When i go to my browser and typed (localhost/westsite1), it give me error below:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please can anyone help me and tell me what to do, or am I doing something wrong?, cos am new to using xampp and joomla on Mac.
Thanks and God richly bless you all as you put me through, and also new to this forum.

Die Fehlermeldung bedeutet, dass Apache die Joomla Dateien (und ggf. auch den Ordner) nicht lesen kann. Du mußt die Dateiberechtigungen so setzen, dass der Apache User (wahrscheinlich nobody) alles lesen darf.

Please can you tell me how reset the permission. Or is it the joomla I download that is not good?

Das ist Basiswissen für Apple OSX, hat mit Joomla und Apache/Xampp nichts zu tun. Das solltest Du in einem Apple OSX Forum fragen.

What you need is to put your website root folder somewhere else, not in the httpdocs. Basically what happened is this, after you executed security commands localhost is locked but you can access http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ for mysql db management. So no, your websites will not work there. Trust me i know.

But I belive it is not completely correct.
You wrote you have unzipped Joomla to /Applications/XAMPP/htdocs, but this is an Alias that leads to /Applications/XAMPP/xammpfiles/htdocs.
IMHO you should be able to install Joomla by calling localhost/westsite1 because you should be redirected to localhost/westside1/installation where the installscript is placed.
After you have reached the point of accessing the installationpage of joomla there is less help from this forum because then it is a joomla-issue and not a xampp-issue anymore.
Nevertheless I use both and may be able to help you if problems occur.
Check if westsite1 is stored in xamppfiles/htdocs or not, if not move it there.
This could have been it, but if it is stored in the right place the error is elsewhere maybe in the file/folderpermissions.
