just copying your XAMPP installation folder to another place.

e.g. your root xampp is in: c:\xampp\

copy this c:\xampp\



This may help.

I doubt that will work, It'll give you a butt load of errors, you'll have to reinstall Xampp to a new directory, copy selected parts of your HTTPD.CONF file, and replace your drive letters, to make it easier on yourself. I would assume you can keep your htdocs folder though.

Moving xampp to another drive or directory

Don't know if you've tried it yet or if it your effort was successful or not. But I went through this very thing just a couple of weeks ago, after having to replace a dying hard drive.

Moving the xampp folder around after it is installed creates complications as the default file-paths no longer apply. In my case, it was far easier to transfer all of my project folders & files OUT of the htdocs folder, and my database folder out of the mysql/data folder, to a safe location (in my case on my backup hard drive), then delete the whole xampp folder and do the new install where I wanted it located.

Following that, it was simply a matter of re-creating the database - by pasting the folder into the same location (mysql/data). Then I copied all of my 'safe' htdocs folders and files back into the new htdocs folder.

Everything worked like a charm.
