Hi, I've been out of the game for a number of years (6/7). I have a few projects lined up. I used to use XAMPP on my Windows PC back then. I have a Windows 8.1 laptop atm. Is XAMPP still ok or can you recommend anything better? I used to upload files to server using FileZilla. Thanks.
EDIT I got it working by adding a Rewrite rule to htaccess to specify the correct root. I wonder what changed in Windows 8 making this necessary It seems that I am having some issues with ProcessWire when running locally on a WAMP environment (specifically Windows 8). I had a working Windows 7 AMP environment and ProcessWire apps were working with ease. After updating to Windows 8, Apache seemed to be throwing 403s all over the place. It turned out WIndows 8 uses IPv6 primarily so ::1 references needed to be added to the apache conf file in addition to 127.0.0.1 references. After this change, all of my other local sites (WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, etc) started working again. However, my ProcessWire apps are still seeing issues. Basically I can navigate to and load the index page, but every other sub page results in a 403 (or 404 if I remove all Apache deny rules). I'm guessing something is off in ProcessWire's routing? Anyone have any insight on how pages are being served up and if there's a way to fix this? tl;dr Running Windows 8 AMP environment and ProcessWire is not serving up pages correctly
Just wanted to share it with you... I bought a copy of Win8 three days ago not knowing what to expect. It turned out that it's not really as bad as it would seem. The system is faster then the original Win7 and the workspace (the desktop mode) doesn't differ much from the previous version. Till now it's stable. The only basic issue I've encoutered was the system upgrade from Win7 - many bugs appeard afterwards so I'd recommend installing Win8 from the scratch. Also it's better not to install free antivirus apps (avast for example) as the system crashes everytime it enters the Web. if you're using Win8 any tips would be welcome.
