Which is easier?
Transfer it from Lampp to Xampp? or..
Transfer the relevant php and .sql files to my personal workstation webserver?
any info re above will be much appreciated. thank you!
hi its me again. and again sorry for the ultra - newbie questions, but I am now working on the 'transferring the relevant files' part.
I've managed to successfully run the default xampp app on windows. I've also migrated the .sql file of the previous developer via phpmyadmin, no problem.
However I am having problems with the php files he has made. I saw that when xampp runs, it accesses the files in the htdocs folder.
I archived the files inside the htdocs folder and replaced them with the files in the previous lampp files and instead i got a server 500 error.
Unfortunately I have not even seen the previous application (not even screenshots), but from the contents of the php files, and the fact this was all reported to be working before it was sent to me, I gather it was all ok.
Pls. let me know if there are documented steps to migrate an app from LAMPP linux to XAMPP windows? Even documentation to migrate a php/mysql app done in LAMPP linux to a webserver can also work for me.
