I have an application that runs on XAMPP 1.4.x (do not remember the exact version) and do not goes very well in newer versions. I do not have the time to find out where the problems are: it works in xampp 1.4.x and it will stay there for now. The new development though I would like to use newer versions of apache/php/mysql for obvious reasons.
Explained the motive, how may I run both versions of XAMPP (in other words 2 different versions of apache 2 and 2 different versions of mysql) in the same machine? I already tried to change ports, but then does not work. I am a mediocre to medium server administrator so please use layman terms
I have XAMPP/windows 1.4.x;
I want to add newer version of XAMPP/windows;
I want them to run together in the same computer.
Thank you in advance for your help,
Thank you for XAMPP, it is great!
All the best,

Thats no helpful error reporting. WHAT does not work?
Can't you start Apache?
Can't you access the XAMPP Administration Site?
Can't you access your Webapplication?
You must be more specific.
To run more than one XAMPP on the same machine, use the zip Version.
- rename folder to something meaningful (e.g.: xampp173)
- run the setup-xampp.bat script to relocate
- change the Apache Ports
You had to change the ports on the following files:
xampp173\apache\conf\httpd.conf => HTTP LIsten Port and Servername
xampp173\apache\conf\extra\httpd-ssl.conf => SSL Listen Port
If you want to use vhosts, be sure to use the new ports in the xampp173\apache\conf\extra\httpd-vhosts.conf file too
If you want to use a second mysql too, you had to change the mysql port too!
If you have problems starting xampp and you use Windows Services for one of them, unregister the services and try it manually.
