I want to know the quickest way to backup all my sites from my local XAMPP folder. I work on a laptop and a desktop computer and it has taken too long for me to copy the whole XAMPP folder which is a few hundred mb.
Im using XAMPP 1.7.0 zip files (without installation) and all my sites utilize mySQL databases.
I know I can make a copy of the htdocs folder (where my site files live)
and I can export my databases from phpmyadmin.
and this works fine to move my sites...
...but would it be quicker to copy the htdocs folder, and whatever folder the mysql databases live in.
Then I can just paste these folders into the XAMPP folder on my other computer.
I just want to find a quick way to move my sites back and forth between computers.
Thanks! I love XAMPP. Will you make a portable version that adds an xampp tray icon to start and stop services( like apache, php, phpmyadmin)?
