I need to do some work locally on a Joomla 1 5.26 site.
Local setup Win7, Xampp, Apache 2.4.3, PHP 5.4.7
I have numerous local Joomla 2.x and 3.x website that work fine however when installing a new Joomla 1.5.26 website I encounter the following error message at step 2;
An error has occurred.:
Cookies do not appear to be enabled on your browser client. You will not be able to install the application with this feature disabled. Alternatively, there could also be a problem with the server's session.save_path. If this is the case, please consult your hosting provider if you don't know how to check or fix this yourself.
As well as many lines of Strict Standards: Non-static method warnings.
I have read that this could be dues to the php.ini file not containing the correct session.save_path - but the php.ini file is set globally and works with my other local sites?
Also it's not a browser cache issues as I have tried numerous browsers and devices. Permissions also seem to be correct.
Not a huge issues as it's for dev only however I'd like to get to the bottom of the issue if possible.
