|... one would suspect the quote are not needed; however, when i had the same situation of blank screen and the recommended Terminal command failed with ...
We are still using the same line without quotes and it works,
... i found that adding quotes to the php-5.3.ini line (as pcordova posted) resolved the issue.
Site error: the file <b>/Applications/AMPPS/ampps/softaculous/enduser/install.php</b> requires the ionCube PHP Loader ioncube_loader_dar_5.3.so to be installed
After adding the quotes, the Terminal command work with just a few warnings.
zend_extension = "/Applications/AMPPS/php-5.3/lib/extensions/ioncube_loader_dar_5.3.so" (with quotation marks)
After added quote and running the Terminal command (even with the line 185 warning), the resulting http://localhost/ampps/ and http://localhost/ampps-admin/ were served OK after the terminal command.
$> /Applications/AMPPS/php/bin/php -c /Applications/AMPPS/php/etc/php.ini /Applications/AMPPS/ampps/softaculous/enduser/install.php
PHP Warning: filemtime(): stat failed for /Applications/AMPPS/ampps/data/vichitra in /Applications/AMPPS/ampps/softaculous/enduser/softpanel.php on line 185
My case was a initial install of AMPPS 1.9 on OS X 10.7.5. No changes had been made to the default configuration until the amps pages were blank.
Does the line 185 warning indicate that any addition actions will be needed?
