Textpattern install with Xampp

Hi,

I’m trying to install TP on Xampp on WinXP. I want to retain the default localhost action of giving me the default Xampp pages. So I put a folder called “textpattern” will all the textpattern files in C:\xampp\htdocs. When I try to run the setup I get:

config.php is missing or corrupt

How does one install when using Xampp?

I see:

http://textpattern.net/wiki/index.php?title=Using_XAMPP_(Apache-MySQL-PHP-Perl)_for_Windows

but it does not specifically explain the TP install, it explain Xampp mostly then links to a manual generic install how-to that does not talk about Xampp. So I’m lost.

Help appreciated. If it’s too messy I can install on Ubuntu…

Have you tried browsing to /textpattern/setup in your browser? This starts the configuration process and will show you the contents of config.php which you then need to write to /textpattern/config.php.

PS: I’m not a XAMPP user or expert, so all of the above may be horsepoop.

Hi,
if your txp installation is in a directory called “textpattern” you have to browse to localhost/textpattern/textpattern/setup

Ah, yes, very good point – I didn’t spot that.

Re: Textpattern install with Xampp

That was it: “localhost/textpattern/textpattern/setup”

I was able to install. Thanks.
