installing on a running apache server

Hi guys,

I am trying to develop a web site on an Apache server running on a Windows Xp pro. I am a really newbie for these server things but some how I succeded to install Apache 2.0.54, Mysql 4.1.14, PHP 4.4.0 and phpmyadmin 2.6.4 on my PC. Till now they are all working well (at least I though so).
Actually I have faced some problems like sending e-mails and troubles in database connections (when I try to connect a password protected account) , and today I have heard about XAMPP which a complete package solves everything (including email sending). Sorry for such a long novel to tell about my system abut as I told you I am a newbie and don't know about jargons as well.

My question is; is it possible to install XAMPP directly to my system? Or I need to uninstall Apache, mysql, php and phpmyadmin before that? If so how can I uninstall or remove them? Any response will be very helpful for me..

thanks in advance

You should be able to load the Xampp bundle into its own area and use it from there.

Thanks Krelvinaz,

it is an amazing experience to install and use xampp. I installed it with a single mouse click but before that I cleaned up my system from all previous installations of Apache, php, mysql and phmyadmin.
Thank you xampp team ...
