SOLVED-Running differnet versions of XAMPP,NOT Simulatenous

Postby magj » 22. November 2010 15:28

Hi

I think that the answer is so clear but I couldn't find it somewhere. :!: After reading tens (really)of pages either in this forum or other sites(maybe I'm missing something).

I want to have (NOT SIMULTANEOUSLY) two different versions of XAMPP in different folders(then i do not need to change the port) :roll:

I have a running version xampp fully configured and used for years. But for some reason (read testing....)
1-I downloaded a Zip version of a more recent version of XAMPP and extracted to another folder(and ran the setup which updates config files to the current folder i.e. php.ini /httpd.conf , etc..)
2-I STOP the Older xampp /Start the newer xampp Control center and start the apache but Apache tries to run the older xampp's PHP and I get these errors:(The New folder is in N:/xampp/ but the log says it's going to run from Older N:/Xampp....)

Code: Select all

I think it should be the php-switch (but not sure how to do it)

Any Help Would be GREATLY Appreciated

Thanks for your reply
I'm not really a tech guy but I think double backslashes are escaped and there should be no problem wit them....
But I didn't get the point what should I really do?

The real question is how should I configure the second xampp PHP/Apache to run? (Yes,the old version is installed but the new is extracted only, I do not want to uninstall the old one because I have many sites/configurations on it)

Thanks in advanced
Regards

Thanks wole for your help

I managed to this way:

Copied the whole Xampp Folder elsewhere , Uninstalled it and ran the xampp from each folder and it's OK.

The key is: you should only have installed "extracted versions" due to php/windows configuration conflicts, to be able to run multiple versions.
