Hi list members
I try to install neos 1.0.0 alpha 5 on windows 7.
Right now the ./setup fails - Here is the trace:
Any hints for me?
I am used to debian and love to program extensions for typo3 4.6 for ages.
I was a little unfamiliar with php, mysql, phar, openssl, composer and git
under windows 7 so it took some time to get the basics working.
Not having a Debian OS at home normally is my insurance to prevent working
at home. But I really want to get my hands on this successor of Typo3 4.6
so I decided to try an installation on windows 7. Yes, I'm crazy. Yay! ;)
Maybe there are other less experienced people who want to install neos on
windows 7 with xampp? I wrote down what I did so far for orientation:
installing neos alpha 5 on windows 7 with xampp
0a. install xampp by using the installer:
default target should be to C:\xampp
0b. configure xampp to enable ssl for php:
and uncomment extension=php_openssl.dll
(I found it arround line 1000)
0c. (re)start xampp
Hint: skype might block port 80 so
start xampp before you start skype.
skype is already running? stop it! ;)
1. install git for windows
I found it here
when installing use the options for full integration
it often is the last option
2. go to http://getcomposer.org/download/
download and run Composer-Setup.exe
3. start the git gui and clone from
into a folder like C:\xampp\htdocs\typo3-neos-alpha5
which git to use? lookup:
Hint: git wants to create the folder by itself
so don't use the selection wizard for creating the folder
like I did. Select the folder a level higher
and append the folder to the path. ;)
4. open a prompt (Press Win+R enter CMD and ENTER)
5. cd C:\xampp\htdocs\typo3-neos-alpha5
6. C:\xampp\php\php.exe composer.phar create-project --dev --stability alpha
7. be patient and wait...
8. edit C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts and add
9. add a virtual host named "neos.demo" to
# skip the following line for development
# SetEnv FLOW_CONTEXT Production
10. restart xampp
11. open in browser:
be patient and wait...
You can lookup the installation guide for *ix systems here:
It's nothing special but might help young developers. ;)
Use it. share it. Improve it! Or just ignore it.
It's free and should stay free.
Stay cool, don't close the fridge!
