Problem with Mac Installation

Postby mpitluk » 27. June 2013 13:34

This is step two of the Mac OS X installation guide for XAMPP:

"Step 2: Installation
To install XAMPP just do the following:
Open the DMG-Image.
Drag'n'Drop the XAMPP folder into your Applications folder."

Unfortunately, this is not what happens for me. I am never given the opportunity to drop and drag XAMPP into my Applications folder. Instead, when I open the DMG-image, I am taken to a window with "xampp-osx-1.8.2-0-installer" in it.

This may seem fine, but even after I open this and complete installation, the XAMPP test shows that MySLQ database is "deactivated" and so are both PHP extensions.

Most importantly, however, when I open the XAMPP folder in my Applications folder, there is no XAMPP control panel.

I have no idea what is wrong. I have uninstalled and reinstalled XAMPP twice and simply followed the directions provided. Can someone please help?

In the same place as the Xampp control panel used to live is the new controller. It sticks out like balls on a bull, really...

The documentation was for a prior version - it, including the installer and the new controll app has been changed, but the docs are lagging.
