Hi,

without a network I can't install XAMPP on Puppy Linux and I can't run Apache, which depends on a working network.

I must apologize to you again Thorsten.

The problem I had installing phpMyFAQ in XAMPP was two fold:

1 I installed Joomla! before I tried to install your software. To install Joomla! I had to modify php.ini in XAMPP. Those changes prevented the install of phpMyFAQ from running properly.

2 In phpMyFAQ I had to comment out declare(encoding='latin1'); in the
following files:

/opt/htdocs/phpmyfaq-2.5.4/inc/constants.php
/opt/htdocs/phpmyfaq-2.5.4/inc/Utils.php
/opt/htdocs/phpmyfaq-2.5.4/inc/PMF_Mail/IMUA.php
/opt/htdocs/phpmyfaq-2.5.4/inc/PMF_Mail/Builtin.php
/opt/htdocs/phpmyfaq-2.5.4/inc/Mail.php
/opt/htdocs/phpmyfaq-2.5.4/inc/Link.php

Once that was done and provided no changes were made to php.ini I could successfully install phpMyFAQ.

Now I need to find out if I can Install Joomla! and get it to run with phpMyFAQ. I think I can now modify php.ini and install Joomla! without breaking phpMyFAQ, that's my next goal.

I hope I won't need to bother you again. Thank you for your help.
