Call to undefined function _() in /Applications/AMPPS/www/gibbon/installer/install.php line 85

I’m looking forward to installing Gibbon on ampps to test it out before I move it to the production server.
The link to the google sign-in to the forum didn’t work for me, only openid was possible.
When I went to the installer page locally in ampps, it failed:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function _() in /Applications/AMPPS/www/gibbon/installer/install.php on line 85

Thank you for your assistance.


_() is a PHP shortcut for a function called gettext, which is used in translation. To resolve this, check the documentation for ampps, and make sure you have gettext installed into PHP. Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
