XAMPP 7.4.7 NOT WORKS ON MAC OS BIG SUR

Postby miguel1999 » 26. June 2020 15:00

Hi, my problem is this one:

When I start the xampp 7.4.7 on my Mac (OS Big Sur), shows nothing, just appears a translucid window. It looks like the app it's working but i can't see any interface.

If any one is in my situation and knows how to solve this, tell me please.

Thank you,
Miguel.

Is this because you are running a beta OS? I'm having an issue aswell

Hello,
I have the same problem since I updated my mac this morning to macOS big sur. I'd like to find the files, and even better to find a fix to let Xampp run on big sur. I found this command:
sudo /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/ctlscript.sh start
But it doesn't work for me

Why dont you blame Apple? Why arent programs running with Big Sur? When i update my Linux PC, everything remains running fine. Same for Windows, after updates programs are still running. As you did not change Xampp, but your OS, you should blame Apple, not Bitnami. Thats the wrong way aroung.

Ok, how much did you pay Bitnami for Xampp? How much did you pay Apple?

You can join Bitnami team and make the Xampp upgrade for Big Sur. Not payed, of course. Thanks for your help!

Instructions to recover files from xampp-vm on mac

For anyone that is stuck since the Big Sur update and needs to recover files from xampp-vm the following worked for me. There’s probably an easier way to do it but it works.

To recover files you need to convert the xampp qcow2 virtual disk to VDI format. You then mount that VDI disk as an additional disk to a debian virtual machine in virtualbox. You then install the guest additions which allows you to share a folder between the mac host and guest debian OS. You can then copy your files to the shared folder on your mac.

Convert qcow2 disk to vdi

VM Location
/Users/{your user}/.bitnami/stackman/machines/xampp/vm/
qemu-img convert -O vdi machine.qcow2 machine.vdi

Qemu can be installed via brew
brew install qemu

Install a debian vm in virtual-box.
https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
https://www.debian.org/distrib/netinst

Install the default graphical version of debian

Install guest additions which will allow a shared folder between the host and vm
https://linuxize.com/post/how-to-install-virtualbox-guest-additions-on-debian-10/

Shutdown the VM and add the additional VDI disk manually in the VM settings

Add VDI as extra hard drive in settings
settings/storage/add disk/

Mount vdi as extra disk in the debian vm
https://serverfault.com/questions/315290/mount-second-hard-drive-debian

mkdir -p /new/drive/
mount /dev/sdb1 /new/drive (your disk may have a different label i.e sdb2)

Create shared folder
https://averagelinuxuser.com/virtualbox-shared-folder/

Copy files from mounted VDI to shared folder on your mac.
/opt/lampp/htdocs/ is the default directory for web files

We are trying to solve the problem, there is an Apple error here, but our main point is to find the source of the problem as soon as possible.

Everyone is worried because we are losing access to folders.

Yes, of course. But still, Bitnami did not change Xampp, Apple changes the OS. You have to find out, what has been changed if you want to find the source of your problem. This cannot be answered here, this is simply the wrong forum. Ask Apple what they have changed.
