The simpler media website CMS
I've had no luck what so ever getting this going in XAMPP despite checking everything that is suggested. The first thing anyone would do is extract the files to the root of htdocs and all I get is error 500 straight off the bat. I did manage to access the setup by inputting the address manually and the check always comes up with the same issues (not with MySQL surprisingly even though I hadn't set that yet). I'm always told that display_errors is enabled even though I have changed that as is evident that an error no longer displays at the top of the page. I then tried to input the correct database credentials in the config and now even the setup page shows error 500. I managed to install it to my web hosting account for test purposes and it works there mostly but I am presented with error 403 Forbidden when I try to accept the licence and as a result I am restricted from doing most things on there. This software has some serious problems that make it much harder than it needs to be to get it working.
