I receive the error message
FATAL ERROR: ... You\'re using PHP version '.MODX_SETUP_PHP_VERSION.',
when running c:/xampp/htdocs/modx-2.6.1-pl/setup/index.html. Seemingly the same was asked 4 years ago at
but received no response. There, the full lengthy error message is quoted. It is the same as mine.
The error message itself seems corrupted as it recites a variable name rather than a variable value (a valid php version). Besides, the alleged error seems not to exist as I have php 7.2.0. XAMPP and MODX are new downloads on a new laptop. Running phpinfo() says php-version is 7.2.0, json support enabled. localhost/phpmyadmin says "Apache/2.4.29 (Win32) OpenSSL/1.1.0g PHP/7.2.0". Follwing the indications at
I set date.timezone=Europe/Berlin and restarted localhost. Same error.
Any idea what this is and what to do?
Thank you for your attention.
