How to update from 1.6.6 to 1.7.4

Postby Etdashou » 29. April 2011 19:44

Is there any good way to proceed to upgrade from 1.6.6 to 1.7.4 Xampp?

Can I use the Zip package and copy paste on my old version? Making sure I keep php.ini, http.conf changes I made so I can apply them on new version.

Or is there any other way to proceed?

If you want to keep everything as it is, why don't you stay with XAMPP 1.6.6?

The recommend and best method to switch from XAMPP 1.6.6 to XAMPP 1.7.4 is to install a fresh version XAMPP 1.7.4,
Only change something on the configuration files if it is really needed (e.g. a requirement for a script).
Upgrade to XAMPP 1.7.4 isn't possible, because there is no upgrade package for XAMPP 1.7.1 to XAMPP 1.7.2 and from XAMPP 1.7.3 to XAMPP 1.7.4.

You can use two XAMPP versions side by side to move your scripts step by step to the new environment. Simply use the zip version, unzip it inside the root of your Harddisk (e.g. in a directory like c:\xampp174\).

Last hint: If you don't really XAMPP 1.7.4 you should use XAMPP 1.7.3. That version was much more stable and functional then the current release.

The problem with 1.7.3 is that Mediawiki is not compatible with it
PHP 5.3.1 is incompatible with MediaWiki due to a bug.

Which is very annoying because I run a wiki on it.

How 1.7.4 is unstabble? What is unstabble? Memory leak? Apache? or MySQL? or?
