Re: Anyone running ElkArte in XAMPP? Reply #15 – July 23, 2019, 07:01:52 am I'm experiencing the same problem (using 1.1.6). Interestingly, if after step 4 you go to http://localhost/elkarte/, it will take you to the upgrade screen and you can sort of complete the setup process, but there will be no admin user on the forum.FYI: The procedure I followed is, I made a folder in xampp/htdocs called "elkarte" and copied the ElkArte install files into it, then went to http://localhost/elkarte/. Is this the proper way to do it? I'm a bit of a n00b when it comes to these things.
