Here is a thread with someone having exactly the same problem, he solved it by downloading pcre-8.38 source and building a new library, the necessary steps are included:

What is too difficult? Download the pcre-Package, open a terminal, proceed to your download folder and enter the commands (copy&paste) of that thread. We can do this step by step here, it is not difficult.

Maybe it's strange for you but I'm not a technical programmer, I'm a graphic designer. So I never used terminal, commands, threads... I downloaded the package of PCRE-8.38 but there are a lot of files inside (???) where do I have to put this folder? Do I open the terminal.app of my MAC and then? Download folder about what? And the command... in which file is it? I'm sorry... also about my bad English!

Put it where you like, that does not matter. Unpack, if it is packed.

Yes, open a terminal. Then you should remember the name of the folder, where you put the files from above. Lets say its /User/Stefi71/pcre-8.38 (or similar, you should see that in the file explorer). Type the following command into the terminal:

Code: Select all
cd /User/Stefi71/pcre-8.38


and hit enter. Of course, you must apply the correct folder name above.

When you made an error, you will receive an error like "no such file" or something like that. Then try again, if you dont get it, show us here, what you did. We will find out, what is going wrong.

Then you enter the three commands from the other thread, you may simply copy them from here:

Code: Select all
./configure --prefix=/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles --enable-utf8 --enable-unicode-properties


and then

Code: Select all
make


and finally

Code: Select all
sudo make install


The last command will prompt for a password, simply enter your own password. And now you are done. You will see lots of output after each line (always hit Enter for each line and wait and see). If nothing goes wrong, you now start Xampp again and try to continue WordPress Installation.

I put the PCRE-8.38 folder in the xamppfiles folder, then I pasted in the terminal what you can see above. Now I don't know...
About the final password, which password? My user password or the password of the database?
Thanks...

This is a big problem, your Computer has no C Compiler installed. Ask in an OSX Forum how to install the C Compiler, then try again "./configure ..." command.

Your personal User password when you login on your Mac.

Ok... I am going to resolve this problem because I would like to use xampp but not now, I can't waste other time in these days because I need to use wordpress to do my exercises. I've installed another software and wordpress works without mistakes. Thanks for your assistance! :lol:

Well done. I am not a Xampp "Fan", if there is a better package, of course use it! Forget about Xampp.
