I tried to run the installer for all the latest versions where it became the default mode for installing XAMPP, 1.8.x and now 5.5.x and 5.6.x. However I could never get it to run. I mount the .dmg file and then double click the installer, it flashes a light indicator on the dock, but no app is ran.
As it turns out I managed to run the installer by moving it to a folder (ex. ~/Downloads) and then running the following script inside the installer's contents:
- Code: Select all
The installer came to live and I was able to get the latest XAMPP. I post this not to get help for myself but so someone else might get a quick fix, and to shine a light on the issue.
XAMPP: 1.8.x and later
