Backup of what? Its not the easiest thing to get a backup of, especially on 98se. I caught the capability doc, turns out 1.7.1 is not capable with 98se, but according to the site, it is. So I just got some confusing info.
Anyway, I am just installing a older-version of Xampp to overwrite what I have. Its a new server to start, I have not done anything with it except add a couple HTML page, so nothing of value is lost.
I wont make this error again...
Thanks for the reply about the backup though.
