I installed Xamp and in htdocs I created a folder named magento. I unpacked the magento installer into the folder named magento.
When I start the sever and go to
localhost/magento I get this error:
Warning: require(/opt/lampp/htdocs/magento/vendor/composer/../symfony/polyfill-mbstring/bootstrap.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /opt/lampp/htdocs/magento/vendor/composer/autoload_real.php on line 70 Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required '/opt/lampp/htdocs/magento/vendor/composer/../symfony/polyfill-mbstring/bootstrap.php' (include_path='/opt/lampp/htdocs/magento/vendor/magento/zendframework1/library:.:/opt/lampp/lib/php') in /opt/lampp/htdocs/magento/vendor/composer/autoload_real.php on line 70
How do I fix it ? I tried following the instructions here in the SO query below and it didn't work. https://askubuntu.com/questions/604522/install-composer-and-configure-with-xampp
