local testing install error

cURL

cURL is not installed. Contact your hosting provider to have cURL installed.

Can you tell me how to fix this?

Thanks

you will need to edit the php.ini file to enable the curl extension.

To find the php.ini file location on your system, create a new php page and add the following code:

php:
<?php phpinfo(); ?>



save it to your site and name it phpinfo.php

browse to this file in your web browser to see information about your PHP installation. look for the Loaded Configuration File section, this will tell you the location of the php.ini file.

open that php.ini file, look for the following line:

;extension=php_curl.dll



and change it to:

extension=php_curl.dll



after saving the php.ini file, you will need to restart the server.

Change php.ini file to activate cURL

I located and changed the php.ini files (actually there were two - php.ini-Development and php.ini-Production) by deleting the semi colon, as suggested.

You noted to then 'restart the server' - does that mean restart the PC (not sure)?

Nevertheless, in PowerCMS Installation Wizard I still get an error that says: "cURL is not installed. Contact your hosting provider to have cURL installed."

What to do please?

there will only be one php.ini file that needs to be edited.

did you create the phpinfo.php file like i instructed in my initial reply?

create that file and view it in your browser.

look for the Loaded Configuration File section, this will tell you the php.ini file that needs to be edited.

restarting the pc will restart the server, but your server should also have a control panel where you can start and stop the apache service without having to reboot the computer.

I changed the passord and now cant get in to phpadmin

Cannot connect: invalid settings.

phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.

if you change the root password you will nee to edit the PHPMyAdmin configuration.

Go to the xampp / wamp directory then into the phpmyadmin directory open config.inc.php

find $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = '';
add your password $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'password';
