php_mysql not available after upgrading

Postby netitnow » 01. March 2010 18:36


I don't know why but : :?
I'm upgrading XAMPP 1.6.7 to latest (1.7.3) - I use the xampp-win32-upgrade-1.7.2-1.7.3.exe file.
My installation is on D:\xampp

The upgrade was successfull but at the end there was a first error which said that the xampp_???.php file in intsall directory was missing.

Finaly, my web application was not working at all because MySQL module in php was not launged. (No indication in a phpinfo())
(Mysql & apache services were started & restarted)

If someone cal help me please !

Thanks !

You can't upgrade from any version <= XAMPP 1.7.1, because there is no upgrade script for XAMPP 1.7.1 to 1.7.2.
The upgrade you executed was only for XAMPP 1.7.2 to 1.7.3, so no wonder that it fails.

Do you have a Backup move back to this.
If not, try to install XAMPP 1.6.7 again, import your scripts manually to this XAMPP and try to get it run again.
Then you have the chance to upgrade from 1.6.7 to 1.7.1 step by step (1.6.7 to 1.6.8, 1.6.8 to ... and so on).

If you wanna use XAMPP 1.7.2 or later you had to do a new full install of XAMPP.
