Move XAMPP with my SMF forum

Postby hallrar » 06. March 2010 14:41

I want to move my XAMPP server with a SMF forum to a new PC (with Windows).

In the documentation it says:

Yes, that's possible with XAMPP. After copying/moving of the XAMPP package, you have to use the "setup_xampp.bat". With this script the paths will be adjusted in the configuration files.

After I did this, a MS dos windows told me "Sorry... but nothing to do!"

Then it later says:

Configuration files from your own scripts, like the forum software phpBB, will not be adjusted. You must do this yourself. But it's possible to write a "plug-in", thus such files will also be adjusted.

How exactly do I do this?

Depends from script to script.
Some applications only set a script root variable in the config,
others in the database

and bad written scripts have hundred of variables pointing to several directories ^^
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

It's like porn for programmers 8)
