first of all i wanted to say thankyou for your nice product and your support. i have one problem on local. i have xampp 1.7.1 installed on my local pc and the operating system is windows xp professional sp2. i have lots of site designed beased on joomla. i always use joomlapack to make backup of my live sites and install the backup on local when i want to do an upgrade or make a big change. i did all of these without any problem. till last two weeks that when i made backups of some of my sites and i installed them on local server after installation when i tried to see the frontpage it just loaded for a long time and when i check my xampp cp i saw that the apache must be reset and was stoped. after having this issue on some of the sites i finally decided to upgrade my xampp to 1.7.3.
as some of the sites are using still joomla version former than 1.5.14 they will have problem with php 3 so i want to have the old xampp and also install the new version. i have searched alot and foundout these steps:
1)uninstall servers that are installed as windows srevices by unchecking the svn box.
2)exporting mysql databases and make a backup of all other necessary information in the xampp folder.
3)downloading the xampp 1.7.3 ZIP package.
4)extract and rename the folder to something like xampp173.
5)running the setup-xampp.bat script to relocate the xampp173.
6)changing the port number in httpd.conf and httpd-ssl.conf of xampp173 .
7)importing the sql dumps to new phpmy admin.
importing appropriate folders from old htdocs to new one.
would you please tell me if there is anything else i should consider or these are the only things i have to do.
thanks in advance
