The background.php.path in config.ini is not valid. The correct path must be set for the import to work

Hi everybody.
i did a xampp installation omeka on my windows machine.
The goal is to Backup an existing Omeka installation on web to have all files and results secured.

Everything was running well so far.
I then installed the Omeka Api Import Plugin on the local installation.

When i go into this i get the message:

  • The background.php.path in config.ini is not valid. The correct path must be set for the import to work.

I googled for hours now and also tried the hints here in forum. Neither usr/bin/php-cli nor any d:/xampp/php/php.exe tipps were working.

How can i find out the correct path to get that working and to backup my data?

Windows isn’t really a platform we officially support, though people do use Omeka there… My recommendation for running Omeka on a Windows machine would be to use a virtual machine.

Still, in general, what you need to put in background.php.path is the absolute path to the PHP CLI on your system. For something like xampp that path probably differs based on where you installed xampp to.
