XAMPP is an easy-to-install package that bundles the Apache web server, PHP, XDEBUG, and the MySQL database. This allows you to create the environment you need to run Joomla! on your local machine. The latest version of XAMPP is available at the XAMPP web site. Downloads are available for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and Solaris. Download the package for your platform.

Important Note Regarding XAMPP and Skype: Apache and Skype both use port 80 as an alternative for incoming connections. If you use Skype, go into the Tools-Options-Advanced-Connection panel and deselect the 'Use 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections' option. If Apache starts as a service, it will take 80 before Skype starts and you will not see a problem. But, to be safe, disable the option in Skype.

Installation on Windows

Installation for Windows is very simple. You can use the XAMPP installer executable (for example, 'xampp-windows-x64-7.4.4-0-VC15-installer.exe'). Detailed installation instructions for Windows are available here.

If you are on Windows XP or 2003 they are not supported by the main package but there are compatible versions of XAMPP for these platforms listed on the download page (but you will only be able to run PHP 5.4 or lower - and therefore will only be able to test Joomla 3.x and lower).

For Windows, it is recommended to install XAMPP in 'c:xampp' (not in 'c:program files'). If you do this, your Joomla! (and any other local web site folders) will go into the folder 'c:xampphtdocs'. (By convention, all web content goes under the 'htdocs' folder.)

If you have multiple http servers (like IIS) you can change the xampp listening port. In <xamppDir>apacheconfhttpd.conf, modify the line Listen 80 to Listen [portnumber] (ex: 'Listen 8080').

If you receive the error:

Install the missing libraries:

XDebug PHP debugger

The XAMPP package for Linux does not includes the XDebug PHP debugger. To install XDebug on Debian or Ubuntu:

- Install the build-essential package:

- Download the development package for your version of XAMPP and extract it over your existing installation:

- Build XDebug:

After this you will have following output on your console…

Then the output will be this.. please monitor the directory specified.

Create a folder in your temp folder that will holds the data file generated by XDebug:

Alternative installations:

Install using PHP extensions community library (PECL) bundled with xampp:

On Ubuntu/Debian you can install using:

(warning: this will also install Apache and PHP from apt repositories).

Warning for 64bit users

When compiling XDebug or installing via apt-get, you will receive an error when (re)starting xampp:

This is because xampp runs 32bit but XDebug is 64bit. To overcome this problem, either make xdebug.so on a 32bit machine or download it from:

Download the file: 'PHP Remote Debugging Client' for 'Linux (x86)'Extract the content of the file on your computer, this compressed file contains several folders with version numbers ex: 4.4, 5.0, 5.1 ... 5.3 and so forth, get in the folder with the higher version number or the one that works for you, then manually copy the file 'xdebug.so' to the following location, overwrite if needed

Remember this location could be different on your computer

Installation on Mac OS X

Mac OS X actually includes an Apache server out-of-the-box, but most developers will prefer to use the integrated tools and configurability provided by XAMPP.

As with most programs on Mac, installation is a breeze. Visit Apache Friends - Mac OS X for the universal binary download.

Once the file has finished downloading, just open the disk image, and drag the XAMPP folder to the 'Applications' folder alias.


To start the server, open 'XAMPP Control.app' and press the start button next to Apache.

A Little Troubleshooting

Many Mac users have a little difficulty at this stage when trying to set up another instance of Apache on their machine. If you cannot start XAMPP's Apache, you have two options:
You can change the listening port of XAMPP. In ApplicationsXAMPPxamppfilesetchttpd.conf, modify the line that says, 'Listen 80' to Listen [portNumber]. E.g.:

You can change the listening port of the pre-installed Apache server. In finder, go to '/etc' (CMD+SHIFT+G); from here you will be able to navigate through the normally hidden Apache files. Find the folder labeled Apache2, and edit the 'http.conf' file. Modify the line that says, 'Listen 80' to Listen [portNumber]. E.g.:

Xmap Joomla Download

Note: If you choose to change the port of the pre-installed Apache server, you may need to restart your computer for changes to take effect. You will also have to authenticate as an administrator to change these files.

Test XAMPP Installation

Once XAMPP is installed and you have started the Apache service with the XAMPP Control Panel tool, you can test it by opening your browser and navigating to 'http://localhost'. You should see the XAMPP welcome screen similar to the one below.

Select the link called 'phpinfo()' in the top menu. This will display a long screen of information about the PHP configuration, as shown below.

At this point, XAMPP is installed successfully. Notice the 'Loaded Configuration File'. We will be editing this file in the next section to configure XDebug.

Display your site map in your site

Xmap Joomla Tutorial

To show your site map in your site, you need to create a menu item pointing to Xmap component in your desired menu.

My component XYZ is not in the site map, Why?

Xmap generates the site map based on your menus structure. So, if your component XYZ is not listed in any menu, Xmap won't include it. Create a menu item pointing to your component in any of the menus INCLUDED in your site map.

Where is my XML sitemap?

The XML sitemap is generated dynamically every time it's URL is accessed. You can see what the URL to your XML sitemap is in your Xmap preferences: in the backend, go to Components -> Xmap and select preferences at the Options menu, in the upper-right corner of the site map.

What are Xmap extensions for?

Almost every component generates links to its own content. The Corresponding Xmap extensions make it possible to expand each of those components content in your site map view.

Where can I find the extensions for my components?

In our downloads section you can find many extensions. If you are having trouble finding the ones you need, maybe a search in Google could help you.

There is a section dedicated to Xmap in Joomla Extension Directory.

XML Sitemap

Xampp For Joomla 3.4

What is the XML site map?

Sitemaps are an easy way for webmasters to inform search engines about pages on their sites that are available for crawling. In its simplest form, a Sitemap is an XML file that lists URLs for a site along with additional metadata about each URL (when it was last updated, how often it usually changes, and how important it is, relative to other URLs in the site) so that search engines can more intelligently crawl the site.

More info: https://www.sitemaps.org/

Xmap Joomla 3.9

What is the 'priority' parameter for?

The priority is the way you can tell the crawlers which pages of YOUR site are more important to you. This doesn't affect in any way your pages against the pages of others sites.

How do I exclude an item from the sitemap

Xmap Joomla Theme

Xmaps provides an easy way to exclude any item from the site map with just one click. To do that just make sure you are logged in as Super Administrator in your frontend and then visit your site map (HTML format), search the element you want to exclude from it and then click over the green check.
