XAMPP 1.7.2 junction fix >alias htdocs & junction mysql data

Postby mediavince » 19. October 2009 13:20

Hi all
I just wanted to share my setup experience with the new version 1.7.2 going from version 1.7.1

in 1.7.1 using junction for both htdocs and mysql/data directories worked great

however with version 1.7.2 it throws an error:
Code: Select all
Warning: Unknown: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0

Fatal error: Unknown: Failed opening required 'C:/xampp/htdocs/xampp/index.php' (include_path='.;C:\xampp\php\PEAR') in Unknown on line 0


after digging and testing a little I came up to the following conclusion and solutions:

- > I use C:/HTDOCS as an alias in httpd.conf instead of C:/xampp/htdocs
- > then I set up a junction from C:/xampp/mysql/data to C:/MYSQL-DATA

This works perfect even on other hard drives
I hope that helps! :D

in 1.7.1 using junction for both htdocs ... however with version 1.7.2 it throws an error:

PHP 5.3.0 have a bug regarding junction points (see the PHP bugtracker). It's fixed in the coming 5.3.1 (or current CVS).

I've got the same problem too. Is there any way to update the XAMPP PHP manually? How do I do this?

Has anybody an idea how to update the PHP installation of XAMPP manually? Is there any reference in the documentation or forum?
