Hi @cabaaklini,

We have a Support Tool that will gather relevant information for us to analyze your configuration and logs. Could you please execute it on the machine where the stack is running by following the steps described in the guide below?

Please note that you need to paste the code ID that is shown at the end.

The tool doesn’t work for me for some reason. My computer cannot open it.

I have this problem too but I don’t know what to do , I can’t open xampp app to mount the volumes and get back my files of htdocs , I have a lot of important files. Please I need your help Help !

Hi @cabaaklini and @Adel,

Big Sur is a beta release and we do not support that OS version yet. We will add support for it once it’s stable. We suggest you use a stable release to use the Bitnami solutions. You can downgrade your OS to a stable version or use our virtual machines with any virtualization program.

This really is a problem, is it currently being worked on?

Hi @georgectlewis,

The latest version of the stacks supports MacOS Big Sur. https://bitnami.com/stacks

When will XAMPP support Big Sur?

Hi @cabaaklini,

The new version of XAMPP should work in Big Sur, maybe this thread of community of apache friend give you more information about this

If you issue it’s no related to that, could you add more information about the error that XAMPP gives to you?
You can add a screenshot.

Hi all, I have same issue after upgraded to Big Sur.

I have checked the files of xampp apllication and noticed that vm file “machine.qcow2” has compressed as LZ4. I have decompresses this file and mounted on an Ubuntu server. But /opt/lamp/htdocs folder is empty. There are no any files inside related my projects. Also, there are no any databased on phpmyadmin… As if, whole folders was created new. How this can be possible ?
