Windows 7?

Postby wrecker69 » 08. June 2010 15:54

I am curious as to whether the latest version of XAMPP is compatible with Windows 7 Home Premium 64.

Thanks, wrecker69

Thanks for the quick reply. I am also wondering if I can upgrade to the latest version without losing my WP files.

Thanks, wrecker69

"WP"? Sorry, I don't understand.

In general, you can update it freely but keep your configuration files safe as they may get overwritten during update.

Thanks again for the help. I meant Word Press. Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks, wrecker69

You should backup your WP database (incluiding schema), and copy your WordPress folder to a 'safe area' (outside XAMPP).

Good Luck

They should be safe. I never experienced data loss after update but making backups is always an important thing to do.
