I did tell you that Visual Studio was the issue! How to resolve it is what you have to research!

Ok humvee,
I would do the research to find what can be an issue other than Joomla in my case.

Thanks for your support through the replies.

user_28Sat, 16 Jun 2012

Well I have already stated it is not a Joomla issue and suggested using Google to research the issue the same as I did. So try searching for it!

user_6909Sat, 16 Jun 2012

I have Visual Studio installed on my machine.
That is true.

With that, would I not be able to install the Joomla on this machine..?? :-(
Pls suggest if there is any workaround which you are aware of.

Thanks,
Dipen

user_28Sat, 16 Jun 2012

Well I suggest you look into the correct configuration of AMP as that is the issue.

Have you searched via Google in respect of this non-Joomla Apache error. Many reports suggest that this has something to do with having Visual Studio installed on the same machine. Is that the same in your case?

user_6909Sat, 16 Jun 2012

It is a local installation on my machine.
I haven't used XAMPP or WampServer since I had MySQL Database running on my system for many other purposes and PHP also running from 2 years for various activities.

So, I had MySQL, PHP and Apache already on my system from a long time.
I am now working on getting Joomla also installed on my system.

But, that is where the above problem comes.
Please help.!

Thanks,
Dipen

user_28Sat, 16 Jun 2012

I refer to my late edit to the original post I made. Is this a local installation of AMP?

user_6909Sat, 16 Jun 2012

Thanks humvee for the response.

I am giving all these details while entering the data on "Database Configuration Page".
Apart from that, do I need to enter all these details in any other file..??

During the installation, there are 61 tables created on the "joomla" database.
Post that, the installation gets stuck with the error "An unhandled exception occurred in Apache.exe" and then stays on that same page of "Database Configuration".

Kindly, guide me.

Thanks,
Dipen

  • The MySQL database user = xxxxxxx; // whatever the name of the user with full permissions for that database
  • The MySQL database user password = xxxxxxxxx; //the password for that user
  • The MySQL database host = localhost; //the default name when DB is on same hardware as the Web server. If at a separate location or configured differently then this will be the URL or IP address of that location.
  • The MySQL database port = 3306; //the default MySQL port number (where needed)
  • The MySQL database type = mysqli //the default requirement for Joomla 2.5
  • The MySQL database name = xxxxxxxxx//whatever you called the database
  • The MySQL database prefix = xxxxx_ //whatever you want the Joomla tables to be prefixed by.
If this does not help resolve the issue then:
  • In addition your file permissions are wrong 777 is inherently unsafe.
  • There is also the potential for ownership issues, which all in turn point to a mis-configured server and you should refer the highlighted (amber & red) issues in the FPA to the site host.

Edit:

Further reading might indicate that this is a localhost server that you have created yourself? If that is the case have you actually added and properly enabled all the necessary Modules and Extensions for Apache, MySQL and PHP?
If you are on a local machine have you considered installing XAMPP or WampServer 2?
