Installing blocks and add-ons in 8.2 under XAMPP
Apart from that, the site appears to be running correctly, but I cannot install add-ons or themes. I have previously seen that themes and add-ons need to be added manually when running a site under XAMPP, and this I have done before by following the instructions - downloading, unzipping and placing in the packages folder. However on this new installation, when I do that and go to "Add Functionality" in the dashboard, whilst the add-ons appear as "Awaiting Installation" the button alongside them reads "Download" and not "Install". Clicking on the button produces the message "Can't download" and I'm stuck.
Can anyone suggest a way round this? Might it be a missing file in the config folder ( see above) in which case which file or files? Or is there something else I'm missing?
Any suggestions gratefully received
Any suggestions as to how to get a clean install, given that my htdocs folder includes a couple of earlier Concrete5 installations?
Are you permissions set up correctly on:
I run concrete5 locally on xampp and have no issues.
I do find XAMPP and Concrete5 very slow to load so there must be a problem, perhaps with my PC which is quite old, but 8.2 does work for me with Windows 10
