I am a volunteer from a non-profit organization that has problems with the installation of civicrm. We already have civicrm in worpress on an Aruba host (and it works), but we wanted to move to drupal.
I understand that I have to install locally first and then transfer everything to my site (is that right?).
I tried to install CIVICRM locally via XAMPP and Composer on my Windows computer following the documentation (https://docs.civicrm.org/installation/en/latest/drupal8/).
When I get to the "Run the installer" step, I navigate to "Extend" and click on install the "CiviCRM Core" module.
I get the following error: CiviCRM: System: The settings file "C: \ xampp \ htdocs \ drupal \ sites / default \ civicrm.settings.php" cannot be created. Ensure the parent folder is writable.
I tried to change the permissions and check the installation steps, but obviously something is wrong (due to my ignorance :/ )
How can I solve the problem?
