Not worth clicking a link, if the "solution" contains only the following steps:
- make a backup of your current xampp folder
- download the XAMPP-7.2.34 version as installer (not VM) version
- Install again. Solved.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

Thanks. It seems to work for the version without VM. But the VM version still doesn't work

Quick question on the fix. Do you know if I can access existing files right after the fix or it means starting all over again?

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


Pls I would deeply appreciate if there's a tutorial (video), you would be helping a lot of people that are currently in a fix.

There is a new version that now works. But my problem is I cannot access any files that I had previously? Even if I copy the files from .bitnami/stackman/machines/xampp/vm from the old build to the new build it throws an error and will not start. I'm sure others have lost there files as well. I will never use VM to store my files again. Does any one know how to accesss the old files machine.qcow2 ???

From the very first day of the VM version, i strongly recommend NOT to use it. I cannot see any advantage in the VM, but many many disadvantages. I cannot understand why people still are using it, as well as I cannot understand, why Bitnami offers it. I cannot see any advantage of the VM version and i have stopped to support it for a long time. Its crap.

At least now you know why. But as always, now its to late to regret.

P.S.: By the way, i also do NOT recommend Apple products. Simply go for Linux, its better, cheaper, safer. And it does not spy you.

Hey guy's i've solution for our problem, how to get to our archiev from vm
1. You need to get old archive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MJFQLEUVdY ( first 10 minutes off the movie )
2. You need to convert qcow2 to vmdk file https://www.virtualdennis.com/how-to-convert-qcow2-to-vmdk-for-vmware-using-macos/
3. Download and install new version of xampp ( if you would have error Error starting “XAMPP” stack: cannot calculate MAC address: signal killed ) You have to close xampp, then type on your terminal:
rm -rf ~/.bitnami/stackman
4. Use 7zip to open archiev vmdk path opt --> lampp -->htdocs
It took me 8 hours. I hope I helped you make it faster :)

So you think that apple should resolved any problems with all apps in internet which not work with OS ?

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.

Not "in internet" (Xampp is not running "in internet"), but yes of course all apps that runned on the previous OS must run on the new OS. If Apple changes the OS, they have to ensure, that still all applications are supported which were running before. That is the very first MUST if you apply any changes to the Operating System. Its an absolutely "no go" if some applications are not supported any more.

When Microsoft updates Windows10, OF COURSE all applications have to work as before (at least also Xampp).
When Linux distributions are updated,OF COURSE all applications have to work as before (at least also Xampp).

This has to apply to all Operating Systems updates and of course as well for MacOS from Apple.

Last not least, as i see in your fix, that is NOT a problem with Xampp. Its a problem of the VirtualMachine (which hosts Xampp), which does not run anymore under Big Sur (not without certain modification). So that is a more global problem than only a Xampp problem.

i think you're wrong apple and windows don't control apps from third party developers. Who is small fish and who is big shark in this ocean.....

What a crap, absolute B*LLSH*T.

No need to convert any archives etc.

Downloaded the new VM 7.4.12, took me 30 seconds, everything up and running again!

No need to convert or extract any thing, no need to start all over again. No need to bash Apple.

Thanks for this solution because I have the same error (Error starting “XAMPP” stack: cannot calculate MAC address: signal killed ). Just a question before I start, did you recover also your database?

Exactly what i meant, its a VM problem, not a Xampp problem.

Actually, i dont agree. Apple is the one and only one who changed something and therefore Apple is responsible for any problem resulting. But obviously the VMWare Team already fixed the problem caused by Apple.

I would love to avoid this but just installing the last version of XAMPP VM did not solve the problem for me. When I launch it I get the control panel but then I can't start any service. I get the error "Error starting “XAMPP” stack: cannot calculate MAC address: signal killed ". So I don't know what to do
