I was building a site with Joomla! 1.5.18 on localhost on my own computer, when it was impossibile to run “Apache” with XAMPPLITE that I have installed.
I made a copy of all the complete folder “xampplite” and also one more copy of the folder “htdocs”.
I was not able to make a copy of the database because XAMPPLITE didn't work and I was not able to enter http://localhost/phpmyadmin/
Then I deleted XAMPPLITE and I installed XAMPP 1.7.3, which runs correctly (Apache and MySql).
I copied in the "new" folder "htdocs" in XAMPP 1.7.3 the folder with the site that I was building, but – as I thought – nothing happened.
What I must do? How can I solve this problem? Where can I find the database of the site I was building?
It is possibile to get back all the articles I wrote?
I don't know if I must create in "htdocs" of XAMPP 1.7.3 a new folder with Joomla! 1.5.22 version and then to copy one by one all the files of the site which were located in the "old" folder "htdocs" of "xampplite", putting them in the related folders of the new installation.
Which is the easiest solution? Thanks.
