Can I run different versions?

Postby shinokada » 14. April 2010 07:23

I want to run different versions of XAMPP.

Currently I am running 1.7.1, since some of my apprecations run on php5.2.

Now I want to test some applications on php5.3, so I want to run different versions of XAMPP.

Can I do it?
If so, how?

Thanks for your help.

Question is answered several times before here.

Yes, you can run more than one xampp on the same computer.

But if you want to start two apache (or other modules) the same time, you had to change their ports.
If you don't use them the same time, thats no problem.

Just download the zip version of xampp 1.7.3, unzip it (e.g. in the path c:\xampp173\), run the setup_xampp.bat script and thats it.

No.

You just need to unzip the new xampp into a different location than your other xampp is installed.

And if you want to start xampp 1.7.3 (or which different xampp version you will install) you had to stop your running apache, mysql, etc. (or you had to change the ports in the config files)

I installed it c:\xampp173\xampp\

I was supposed to install it in c:\xampp173\

Question:

If I uninstall xampp173, will it uninstall other xampp171 as well?

It's not necessary to "uninstall".

The uninstall script does following actions:
1. deinstalls the Windows services
2. delete the startmenu/desktop icons
3. delete the XAMPP directory

all of this can be done on your own. just move your xampp-folder to the destination you wish, run the setup_xampp.bat script (and maybe edit your startmenu/desktop icons)
