Same problem with my mid 2010 MacBook Pro and lastest XAMPP-VM.

"cannot calculate MAC address"

Any suggestions?

The issue is we use hyperkit for the XAMPP-VM. These are the requirements for this platform:

    - OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite or later
    - a 2010 or later Mac (i.e. a CPU that supports EPT)

Unfortunately you can not use XAMPP-VM but you can use the regular OS X native installer available at https://www.apachefriends.org/download.html

Due to the numerous erros occuring with this Hyperkit, i would not deliver any more that installation. Its impossible to support all the people having all kind of problems. There is a native Xampp OSX release and thats fine.

Hi, we will add a specific error for the MacOS that does not support EPT in the next version. In those cases, the error message will inform the user that the regular installers are available in the apachefriends.org page and they are supported in his platform. We think that will fix all these issues for users that try to install XAMPP-VM in a non supported platform.

Good evening!
I installed Xampp, but I can not see or save content in the htdocs folder. It simply goes blank. I followed all the steps described here on the site, but it does not work and I also uninstalled a few times without any hassle. What do I do? :cry:

I also couldn't install from XAMPP-VM-osx-7.1.8-0-preview-1.dmg. Same problem as others are reporting in this thread: cannot calculate MAC address to assign IP address. I'm on an early 2011 MacBook Pro running OSX Sierra 10.12.6.

The Bitnami installer xampp-osx-7.1.8-0-installer.dmg works fine for me. Given the number of people who've reported problems with this, I'd suggest you consider making that the featured installer for Mac users at https://www.apachefriends.org/index.html, rather than the VM version, and/or make some prominent mention of the problems. Others might not have the patience/persistence to search the Forums, to figure out how to get past the problem. Thanks.

This is great job guys.
I need one important thing. That is git or other version control systems.
Thank you.
