I also got the mount error initially.

What worked was copying ALL of the contents of my old .bitnami folder and replacing the new one. Then delete the hyperkit file.

After doing this it mounted for me and I got my files back!

So after trying a few of the things suggested here (deleting hyperkit, but got the mount error), I've found a simple solution that works for me. I hope it helps others too.

1. Rename your .bitnami folder in your *user* directory to .bitnami_old
2. Rename your XAMPP application in your application folder to XAMPP_old
3. Install the latest version of XAMPP: xampp-osx-7.4.12-0-vm (https://www.apachefriends.org/xampp-files/7.4.12/xampp-osx-7.4.12-0-vm.dmg)
4. Quit XAMPP if it automatically opened
4. Copy all of the contents of .bitnami_old to the newly generated .bitnami folder.
5. Delete the hyperkit file found in .bitnami > stackman > helpers.
6. Start the new XAMPP, start and mount should work and your files should all be restored.
(7.) Make sure you backup your databases and htdocs before the next major MacOS release!

Hope this helps someone!


Thanks for your help atticusat, I quickly recovered all my work on the vm without installing debian (the other method given in this thread). You saved me weeks of work, deeply appreciated :)

Just delete the hyperkit, start the vm and the message about mac is gone, mount drive, recover files, and db.

I guess that by "delete de hyperkit" you mean execute rm -rf ~/.bitnami/stackman
I did that, but I get a vanilla XAMPP VM install so I lost all my files and db tables


DennisV wrote:No by deleting the hyperkit i mean:

cd ~/.bitnami/stackman/helpers
look for a file named "hyperkit", delete it!

Start you VM and all is well.

DON'T DELETE THE WHOLE STACKMANN FOLDER, JUST THE HYPERKIT FILE!

Dear atticusat and some people who led us to solve this problem,

I would like to thank you for all of your kind help.
I am a lecturer at a university in Japan.
Some of my undergraduate students suffered from the trouble of XAMPP on Big sur for almost a month...
The solution that you suggested works very well and my students eventually could get back all of their programs that they developed this year.
Deeply appreciated.
