    Default Using 157b with XAMPP 8.0.0

    I am trying to install ZenCart 1.5.7b on Windows in combnation with a local server XAMPP 8.0.0. I followed the instructions on https://codingtrabla.###############...ows-xampp.html, but, but it doesn't work with ZC157b and XAMP8.0.0.

    When I open http://localhost/zencart/zc_install/index.php in my browser to start installation, I get an Error 500. The XAMPP error log doesn't give me any useful information.

    Does anyone recognize this problem and know how to solve it?

    While 1.5.7 may trigger a lot of warnings on PHP 8, it should still run.
    You'll need to apply the fix that torvista eluded to: https://github.com/zencart/zencart/c...994aba823e09ea

    When you get a blank page it means a fatal error has occurred. Usually that error is recorded in the /logs/ directory of the store's files. What's the error in your case?

    While 1.5.7 is not officially built to avoid all low-severity "warnings" or "notices" reported by PHP 8.0, the v1.5.7c code has some patches in it for improved PHP 8.0 compatibility.

    You can get the unofficial 1.5.7c (or latest 1.5.7-series) from https://github.com/zencart/zencart/tree/v157 by clicking on the green "Code" button and choosing "Download ZIP".

    That Server 500 is normally accompanied by a detailed record of the underlying issue in a myDEBUG*.log file, present in the site's /logs sub-directory.
