Joomla Install with MAMP

Post by Aguadiablo » Mon Oct 26, 2020 9:26 pm

Hi,

I am using MAMP on a windows 10 machine to try and install Joomla. I have download the complete version of Joomla from the download section. I have extract the files into the htdocs folder in my MAMP folder. Then after selecting the Joomla folder as my document root for my web server in preferences, I have launched the web installer.

After entering all of the details, and continuing through the Finalisation step of the instalion, I have checked the details for the main configuration and database configuration. And everything seems to be fine.

However, I have then clicked through to install, and whilst I do see a progress bar, I do not see the "Congratualations! Joomla! is now installed" message. Instead I am taken back to finalisation step of installation.

I have checked and I can see that tables have been created in my database which is hosted on MAMP. But I cannot access Joomla, even after manually removing the installation folder from the Joomla folder.

Please advise

Welcome to the Joomla forum!

I must admit that I was surprised to learn that MAMP runs also under Windows and not just on macOS. Any particular reason for selecting MAMP, instead of XAMPP or Wampserver?

Please post the results from the Forum Post Assistant (FPA) by following the instructions at https://forumpostassistant.github.io/docs/ so that our volunteer experts can review the configuration.

MAMP is what I first learnt to use when I was first learning WordPress.

Although the fpa reports Potential Ownership Issues: No
... the fact that the configuration.php was not written suggests that there is an Ownership problem. Recommend that you use Wamp on Windows.

One thing I noticed:
Error at very top,
Last PHP Error(s) Reported :: wrote:

Other potential configuration options for your AMP stack are highlighted red.

Max Execution Time 30; increase to 120
Max Upload Size 2M increase to 20M*
Max Post Size 8M increase to 20M*

The database config issues are probably a result of the configuration file not being created, or readable by the FPA therefore are returned as "not found" (granted, however, you don't necessarily need a db password for a localhost install that's not on the internet).
Database Configuration :: Database Credentials incomplete or not available Nothing to display.
Missing credentials detected: Connection Type missing | Database Name missing |MySQL Host missing | Table Prefix missing | Database Username missing | Database Password missing |User Privileges : Unknown
I would agree WAMPServer would be better on Windows systems.
