Question Support for PC-hosted websites (e.g. WAMP, XAMPP)

Running a PC-hosted website and trying to diagnose problems that people might have with Kunena are always difficult. They're difficult because no-one else can actually see the problems first-hand.

Running XAMPP on a Windows 7 64-bit system are particularly troublesome (as the topic Getting either XAMPP or WAMP on Win7 64 bit clearly shows). The problems don't end there, either, because different versions of this kind of software install unusual implementations of PHP - unusual in the sense that real web-hosted solutions don't involve.

Although we do our best to help users who are developing their websites (and our primary focus is on resolving Kunena issues) when users involve PC-hosted issues these things only complicate matters. I would not say that we do not support Kunena on a PC-hosted platform but, when you get right down to it, a PC-hosted platform is quite different to a web-hosted one where you are paying money for expert support assistance. What we can say, without fear of contradiction, is that Joomla was not designed to run "out of the box" on a PC-hosted platform without making a number of changes. Unless you are knowledgeable in the art of knowing how to manage a webserver, these things are often beyond the reach of novice users. What we can also say is, because PC-hosted solutions generally do not demonstrate the full range of capabilities provided by internet-based web servers, these approaches may not prove that your ideas will translate into the finished solution that you have in mind.

In summary, most PC-based servers are generally not configured to run Joomla or Kunena "out of the box". Consequently, our ability to analyse, diagnose and "fix" any problems that people might encounter is considerably limited. In effect, when you use a PC-based approach to web-development, you take the responsibility to set things up and to resolve any of these server support problems upon yourself.
