I was cleaning up my hard drive yesterday and obviously deleted/uninstalled something that caused my whole XAMPP system to no longer work. I can't even get to the localhost menu to save my databases with phpMyAdmin and can't bring up any of my sites in htdocs. Entering http://127.0.0.1/
gets a page not found. I suspect what I did was - I thought I had an older version of Perl on my machine so I uninstalled perl, thinking it was that older version. However, when I go to my C drive, I still see both a perl folder and a perl5 folder that appear to have all the files in them. I also still have a perl folder in my xampp folder so I don't honestly know what I uninstalled.
Any suggestions about what to do? The version I'm running (or used to be running) is 1.6.8. I assume I would be able to uninstall and reinstall but the problem with that is that I don't know how to save my sql data. I've got the mysql > data folder with a folder for each of my databases but will those do me any good if I don't download the same version? I do have my htdocs data saved. Help?
