Join Jen Kramer for an in-depth discussion in this video Turning off WAMP error reporting, part of Installing and Running Joomla! 3: Local and Web-Hosted Sites.
- This video is intended for…PC people only, who are running WAMP.…Mac people running MAMP, skip right over this.…If you're running Joomla XAMPP, skip right over this,…or if you're running Joomla and webhosting,…skip right over this.…But you WAMP people, we need to talk.…So these areas that we have here, have to do with certain…aspects of the PHP code being something called "deprecated",…which means these are functions that are used in PHP…that are recommended that you don't use anymore because…PHP is marching on as a programming language.…It's not anything horrible, it's not going to affect…your Joomla site, these are just programming warnings,…and as Joomla users, we don't really care about the…programming warning, so we'd like to make these disappear.…
My site is actually displaying, it's further down…on the page, so I'll scroll on down here.…You can actually see bits and pieces of the site down here,…but it's kinda obscured by all these errors, so we'd like…to make the errors go away.…So here's how we're going to do that.…

Q: This course was updated on 05/30/2018. What changed?
A: Joomla no longer supports PHP 5.6 and lower and will issue an error message if it detects an outdated version on your host server. We added three videos that show how to resolve the error message, by updating PHP in your MAMP or WAMP stack.
