Reinstalled OS X - XAMPP requires admin privileges

Postby shortchange » 02. September 2016 11:37


I recently moved all my files onto an external hard disk and reinstalled OS X El Capitan onto my laptop. Now I've cloned the files back but when I try to open the XAMPP manager I get the message "This application requires admin privileges" (though I'm running the only user account). Is there a way to fix this?

I wouldn't mind doing a fresh install of XAMPP if there were a way to recover/migrate the database without using a web app (since I can't activate the server).

Any suggestions?
