Upgrading Xampp on USB

Postby ameisez » 21. December 2011 10:22

Hi,

I am using XAMPP in USB.

It says my control panel is 2.5.8
Xampp for WIndows 1.7.3

Also, I am always tempted to use xampp on my windows server but because of the WARNING that says xampp is not for production use, I don't use it. However, I saw that there is a security check page on XAMPP which check if all services are secured. If all are secured in the security page, does it mean it is safe to use xampp in production environment?

Thanks

No update pack available.

Simply download the USB version of choice and replace the version you are using after first making a backup of your own files and folders ready for adding them to the new version.

Unfortunately you can't update by extracting the new version and overwriting the current version.

Good luck. :)

I am assuming that the files will be migrated simply by copying htdocs content. Is that right?

But how about the databases. How can I transfer those in the new xampp?

Thanks

Not entirely, only copy your own files and folders not the xampp folder.

You would use phpMyAdmin to export the databases to sql files and then use phpMyAdmin in the new version XAMPP to import the database sql files.

Which XAMPP USB version are you updating to?

I'm planning to use the latest. I haven't check what's the latest but I know mine is outdated.

From PhpMyAdmin, will there be a way to export all the databases or I have to do one database at a time.

So basically after moving my files and database my xampp will be upgraded right?

Thanks a lot
