I just installed version 3.9 joomla in local using xampp. Once the installation was finished correctly I tried to navigate the site and the backend. After loading a few pages, this annoying error appears: "Error: Failed to start application: Table 'C:\xampp\tmp#xxxxx_xx.MAI' is read only"

The version of my xampp is: 3.2.4 with PHP 7.2.24 My joomla version is: 3.9.13

Any help? Thanks

  • The other problem usually happen with similar errors is the htaccess file in Joomla root directory. Something is wrongly defined, configured in that. You should check that thoroughly and we will see...

  • For the moment i'm working in local with my website so htaccess is renamed with .txt extension. I think that's not the problem because in local is not active, right?

  • No, you need .htaccess either way, it is a quite important file, not only for live servers.
