I downloaded BitNami WAMPstack 5.4.12-0 and then tried to install it. About 80% of the way through, a dialogue box came up stating "Unable to rename C:/BitNami/wampstack-5.4.12-0/frameworks/codeigniter/user_guide to C:/BitNami/wampstack-5.4.12-0/frameworks/codeigniter/htdocs/user_guide. The application will exit now"
I had no choice but to click OK and the process stopped. There are files in the BitNami folder. Is the installation complete? How do I know? If not, what can I do to get this file to rename?
It is strange. Do you have free space enough in your computer?
I've 118 GB of unused space on harddrive. That ought to do it, don't you think?
These look like directories; if so, then the command to rename it is invalid.
E.g. in a command window (note for this forum post I am using '/' instead of a backslash):
>ren user_guide /htdocs/user_guide
The syntax of the command is incorrect.
Rather than being a rename command, it looks like a copy or a move command (copy/move the file user_guide to /htdocs)
What I would do is attempt an install without Code Igniter. If that works, then manually add it afterward.
Or I would try WAMP version 5.4.11. (Fortunately both versions can co-exist so you don't have to first uninstall 5.4.12 just so you can try 5.4.11)
It is weird, did you install BitNami WAMP previously? Try to remove the previous folder and install it again.
Thanks, that worked great. I installed all components of WAMPstack 12.0 except CodeIgniter. I want to be able to run WordPress offline, so I can create the webpage I want, with all the stops and starts that will require, without it going out to the world until it is done. Will I be able to do so without CodeIgniter? If not, how do I get just the CodeIgniter part installed?
Yes, you can do it without CodeIgniter. CodeIgniter is a PHP framework that can be not installed without any problem. By the way, the error you are getting is very weird. If you find something related to that please let us know.
I have exactly the same issue with version wampstack-5.4.29-0
At the end I have installed the package without CodeIgniter.
Any other solutions in the last months?
It is really weird indeed. I've just tested it and it works properly. Could you give us as much information as you can so that we can try to reproduce it? We would like to avoid this issue. Which version of Windows are you using? Which amount of RAM are you using? Do you have any other Stack installed? Which one?
Thank you very much!
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, 6 GB RAM.
I haven't installed any other Stack.
I just had IIS running, but I stopped it.
I had troubles installing on port 80, but stopping IIS I override it
I had troubles installing SSL on port 443 so I changed it to 442
I just installed wampserver a few minutes before, but I had some troubles on ports so I uninstalled it and then installed wampstack.
That's all for the moment.
Thanks and regards
Do you have any antivirus installed in your system? Could you disable it during the installation process?
If it doesn't work, could you try to install Wampstack from the command line like this and send us the output file to hello (at) bitnami (dot) com? (Change YOUR_DOWNLOAD_PATH for the actual path where the installer has been downloaded.
YOUR_DOWNLOAD_PATH\bitnami-wampstack-5.4.29-0-windows-installer.exe --debugtrace C:\bitnami.txt
I uninstalled Wamp Stack, then switched off Antivirus Avira and finally I could install it correctly again with no error messages (nor about ports nor about Igniter).
