Getting errors when running Joomla! 1.7 and 1.6 in XAMPP on Localhost

21 sec read

The error messages that I get are all Strict Standards: Accessing static property JCache::$_handler as non static which is causing an annoying working experience with Joomla!


  1. Locate your php.ini file in c:\xampp\php\php.ini
  2. Locate error_reporting =  and change the value to error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_DEPRECATED
  3. Locate locate display_errors = On and change the value to display_errors = Off
  4. Stop and restart Xampp and the problem will be gone
