Downloaded joomla and extracted in /opt/lampp/htdocs/joomla
accessed it via http://localhost/joomla
The Installation went nice, but got some error in installing sample data.
But, when accessed the site, it trhowed a lot of erros like the following.
Strict Standards: Non-static method JLoader::import() should not be called statically in /opt/lampp/htdocs/joomla/libraries/joomla/import.php on line 34
Searched net and found this page that discusses the same issue.
From that page, found the solution.
in the file, /opt/lampp/etc/php.ini
configured like following.
error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE ; Show all errors except for notices
display_errors = Off ; Print out errors (as a part of the output)
the, restarted the lampp setup.
Now, going to ask priya to read this post and requesting her to do it the same and her machine and explore the joomla.
