Configuring Ampps to run Jamroom
Ampps won't run Jamroom until you do the following tweaks to the default configuration:
1. Enable ctype and iconv extensions:
In the Ampps control centre, click PHP, then Php Extension.
In the window which opens, enable ctype.so and iconv.so, then save.
2. Enable mod_deflate:
In the Ampps control panel, click Apache, then Configuration.
In the configuration file, search for mod_deflate, and uncomment the following line.
LoadModule deflate_module modules/mod_deflate.so
Restart Apache from the Ampps control panel.
Note: The above is true for php5.5, probably true for other versions. There is currently a Yosemite bug in ampps, to upgrade to php5.5 (from the default 5.3) you need to start apache from the command line rather than from the control panel. The other php versions will then appear in Ampps control center > PHP > Change php version.
This is the command to paste into Terminal:
sudo /Applications/AMPPS/apache/bin/httpd -k start
(stop apache first if it is already running)
