Installing 2 xampp versions

Postby stobyer » 25. January 2010 12:18

Hi, all.
I'm currently working on 2 projects.
One is Joomla based and thus must use xampp 1.7.1 because of php 5.2.9.
In the second I would like to use php 5.3 because of ActiveRecord support.
My question is: may I install 2 xampp versions on the same machine: 1.7.1 and 1.7.3? Or, alternatively, how can I add php 5.3 to the system and switch the php versions in configuration.

- download the wanted xampp Versions as zip Version (e.g.: Xampp 1.7.1 and Xampp 1.7.3)
- unzip them to your HDD root-directory and give the xampp folder a unique name (e.g.: C:\xampp171\ and C:\xampp173\)
- execute the setup-xampp.bat file of every unzipped version to locate them right
(- change ports if you want to run them all at the same time)

Thats it. Easy, isn't it?
