where is xampp upgrade from 1.7.1 to 1.7.2 for WINDOWS???

Postby 172upgrade » 04. February 2010 23:29

It does not seem to exist!

i just had a horrible experience where i used the 1.7.2 installer to "upgrade" xampp. What it really did was overwrite xampp with a brand new site! good thing i made a backup of the directory or i would be very very SOL as there was no warning that it would erase my current configs or anything.


So it just seems that there is no upgrade installer for this version. There is 1.7.2 --> 1.7.3, there is 1.7.0 --> 1.7.1, but no 1.7.1 --> 1.7.2.. What gives?!?

http://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/files/

any information appreciated thanks

You are right.

There is no upgrade 1.7.1 -> 1.7.2
and there will never be one.

The changes between the modules in this packages was too comprehensive, especially the change of PHP 5.2.9 to PHP 5.3

Well i just couldn't believe that a professionally released product did not have an upgrade path from one minior revision to another, when every other revision had one. Also i believe the linux binaries have an upgrade so i dont know why the windows ones wouldn't.

I too am stuck on XAMPP 1.7.1 without the upgrade. I would like to see some way to do an upgrade without destruction of the existing settings. My boss is hounding me for the upgrade but I do not want to go through the hassle of repopulating a blank slate.

There is no upgrade. Either stick with 1.7.1 or go directly to 1.7.3. At least back up your htdocs and mysql\data files; I would also save my php.ini, httpd.conf, etc. if I changed anything.

You can tell your boss what i told mine, php 5.3 is buggy as hell. i am waiting for probably 1.7.4 or something which upgrades php.

if you look at wikipedia, you will find that 5.3.2 (released 2010-03-04) is not even supported in the latest xampp. That update says "fixes hundreds of bugs". so you would be stuck on 5.3.1 with those hundreds of bugs NOT fixed. no thanks! Anecdotally , from what i have heard and what you may be able to google, 5.3.x sucks hard. So i have just put off the upgrade half a year or so untill xampp gets, ideally one more bug fix release of php ( maybe 5.3.3 when it gets dropped).
