Starting XAMPP Blocks Internet Access on Big Sur

Postby StanfordAlan » 17. January 2021 09:22

Hello,

I just installed XAMPP from this website via the main OS X button on the homepage. That appears to be 8.0.0 (PHP 8.0.0). The version info via the Finder shows Wed Jan 24 15:04:20 CET 2018.

I'm running Big Sur 11.1.

I have no VPN running when this happens.

As soon as I hit Start on the General tab of XAMPP, my Internet stops working for the entire computer. I have to restart completely to get back my Internet access. Stopping XAMPP doesn't help.

Is this version not compatible with Big Sur? Or is there something else I need to do?

Thank you.
StanfordAlan

On the download page there are alternative versions of xampp for macos. Try the installer version (~160Mb) instead of the VM version (~360Mb)

Yes, thank you! I didn't realize the default was the VM version. Thank you again!
