Problems with 1.5 Install on localhost

Post by carbon » Sat Apr 29, 2006 4:59 pm


I am new. I downloaded Joomla 1.0.8 and installed it on my local machine, and it went smooth as a baby's behind.

So now I am playing with it and learning a lot.

Thought I would also download and try the current 1.5 Alpha ( so I downloaded that and installed it as well.

I get through the first three screens fine. It does populate the MySQL Db with the 35 tables just fine.

However it then moves to the next screen...which has the logo and background and all..but there is nothing there.
Nothing to click. Nothing to input... I notice that the next tab on the previous screen is ready for some FTP info.

Having installed XAMPP I dont really have an FTP server. Is this why I am coming up blank?? or am I maybe missing something.

As I said... 1.0.8 is great. But would sure like a peek at 1.5 ! :)

The second alpha has been a long time ago, there have been lots of changes in the code itself since then. If you do want to test the latest dev version, you could try out the nightlies.
