cannot map MAC address

Problems with the Mac OS X version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

cannot map MAC address

Postby mauricev2 » 24. October 2019 20:29

XAMPP 7.3.10 (why is this a secret?) under 10.14.5 and I get

Code: Select all
INFO: Starting "XAMPP" stack
ERROR: Error starting "XAMPP" stack: cannot map MAC address "fa:5f:f5:c7:8d:50" to IP: Could not find an IP address for fa:5f:f5:c7:8d:50

I am using both interfaces on my MAC. Is that confusing it somehow?

By the way, there is no interface with this MAC on my machine, so the error is quite odd.

Hi, I'm also having this same problem. I had a previous Docker install but have removed it, and have tried other advice I've found online such as stopping the httpd service. I've also tried running as sudo just to see what it would do, and it did the same thing so I'm thinking it's not permissions-related.

If I run it as either my user or as root from the terminal, and click Start, I see this error:
virtio_net: Could not create vmnet interface, permission denied or no entitlement?

I'm running Catalina, so I don't know if that has something to do with it as well. Has anyone gotten past this error?
