This method worked very well. Thanks so much! I installed the xampp 5.6 version and used Openemr 5.0.0 Zip windows version, using Firefox as the browser. It did, however, stop at this stage:
Installing and Configuring Access Controls (php-GACL)…
Fatal error: Cannot declare class Cpdf, because the name is already in use in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/lib/php/Cpdf.php on line 19
I then deleted Cpdf.php, paged back and it completed the setup fine. I have added the extra lines to the Apache config file. Next to edit php config file and I will start the process of setting up my homeopathic practice.
So what I can confirm is that the following combination manages the xampp install for Mac: MacBook pro (2013 model), Macos Sierra 10.12.3 - the latest version; Xampp for Mac Version 5.6.30-0 - not the latest version; and Firefox 51.0.1 - also the latest version. The only pitfall was the need to delete the Cpdf.php file. Also perhaps important, is to open the xampp Manager-Osx before installation and check that the Apache Web Server and MySQL database are running. If you like I could offer an edit of my install on the Wiki page?
Thanks once again
All the best
