Errors installing XAMPP 1.7.4

Postby SheridanYeates » 30. October 2011 20:21

After attempting to install XAMPP 1.7.4 I worked through a number of errors on the error log until I got to this:

Attempt to reload aborted.\nCompilation failed in require at C:/xampp/perl/site/lib/ModPerl/ line 18.\nBEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:/xampp/perl/site/lib/ModPerl/ line 18.\nCompilation failed in require at C:/xampp/perl/site/lib/Apache2/ line 18.\nBEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:/xampp/perl/site/lib/Apache2/ line 18.\nCompilation failed in require at C:/xampp/apache/conf/extra/ line 9.\nBEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:/xampp/apache/conf/extra/ line 9.\nCompilation failed in require at (eval 2) line 1.\n
[Sun Oct 30 15:15:09 2011] [error] Can't load Perl file: C:/xampp/apache/conf/extra/ for server, exiting...

Does anyone have any idea what is going on here? :(

You are in conflict with the XAMPP version you state you are using in your profile.

If you already have 1.7.2 installed (re your other topic) then attempting to install 1.7.4 over this 1.7.2 version will fail.

Help with uninstalling current versions and installing again using a different method to the installer exe, for example the archive file format versions, can be found here:

BTW 1.7.4 was not the best XAMPP version ever to be released as it had many issue that were posted about here in this specific topic:

Please let me know which is the correct version you are referring to so I can give correct version support.
