Hi all, I was just checking my downloads out and came across this that I never seemed to have installed.
it looks rather handy! its from
http://www.softaculous.com who also make
http://www.softaculous.com/softaculous/ which integrates with it and offers 55 different one click installers in their free version - and 441 in the paid version.
and compare as shown here
and have an active support forum!
SO, if you want to try it out, as I did -well it didnt work at first.
when i installed it, (on mac os x- 10.6.8) it fired up , nice little control panel on the right but… blank home and admin page! gah!
after some hunting around I found this
Enduser Panel gives a Blank Page
If you are getting Blank page while accessing localhost/ampps
Its because Your php version isn’t loaded.
Ok then, so lets sort it!
Open AMPPS Control Panel and Restore Default Configuration of PHP. Then follow the below steps.
Cron was not able to run after installing AMPPS for the first time.
For Windows, type this command in command prompt
“path\to\Ampps\php\php.exe” -c “path\to\Ampps\apache\php.ini” “path\to\Ampps\ampps\softaculous\enduser\install.php”
For Mac OS X, type this command in Terminal
“/Applications/AMPPS/php/bin/php” -c “/Applications/AMPPS/php/etc/php.ini” “/Applications/AMPPS/ampps/softaculous/enduser/install.php”
(Note: Please make sure your Internet Connection is working properly)
as no such file or directory
gah! so opned and inspected the AMPPS app package and, its not there. but there is php-5.6 and php-7.1
pretty random bug. maybe I should let them know
so, I ammended that so that each AMPPS/php/ became AMPPS/php-5.6/ (there is also 7.1 installed)
AND BEHOLD THE SHINY GOODNESS THAT IS THE AMPPS ENVIRONMENT! mwaa haaa haaa
SO, I usually Use MAMP (Pro)
and am rather happy with it (apart from the crazy permission/user account swapping game I have to do for each wordpress install - I am obviously doing something wrong there)
But this is FREE!
and seems to do a WAY Of a lot more things. Not sure if it runs when offline though.
But, it might be handy to explore for someone else too.
ok, long late post. I might fire this up on High sierra too, see how it trundles.
I’m also exploring
Prepros ( I think something along the lines of CODEkit for mac)
and some other text editors.
this vid shows a nice intro (a little slow but good for beginners)
VVV… and VV - Variabe Vagrant local environment for mimicking any servers, or setups you have to work on
and, its set up to not get destroyed by GOOGLE now owning the .dev TLD.
this All looks rather interesting.
