My system is Windows 7 SP1 64-bit with the lastest updates and patches installed.
I just did a clean installation of PrestaShop using "bitnami-prestashop-188.8.131.52-1-windows-installer.exe". The installation went well. I can access phpMyAdmin. But when I access PrestaShop via http://localhost/prestashop/, it gives internal error 500. So, I connect the internet and access again. This time the access is successful. I disconnect the internet, and restart the machine. This time, I can access Prestashop without the internet.
Why do I ever need internet connection to access the local webstore configured to run everything locally?
