Error starting "XAMPP" stack

INFO: Starting "XAMPP" stack
ERROR: Error starting "XAMPP" stack: cannot calculate MAC address: Using fd 9 for I/O notifications
hv_vm_create HV_ERROR (unspecified error)

When I tried to run XAMPP for macOS for the first time on macOS Big Sur, I got the above error.


I had to downgrade from 8.0.8 / PHP 8.0.8 to 7.3.29 / PHP 7.3.29
