I had to reinstall xampp, it works almost perfect. But in Joomla I have to manually create the config.php due to a permissions isue. Same for WP, I have to create manually wp-config.php. Also I have to remove the install folder of Joomla manually. In WP I can't install themes, I have to give ftp credentials.

How do I solve this?


Your file permissions are wrong. cd in to your http directory (the one containing the wordpress and joomla folders, and run the following:

find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

I've solved it. How? I followed this tutorial. I missed one step, hence my problem. Also read this tutorial, for giving httpd.conf the right permissions.
