How do I install Python addon into Xampp

Postby gwmbox » 16. January 2012 02:22

Hi guys

I have a need for python to be installed on my local xampp install, I found an addon for it at http://sourceforge.net/projects/xamppaddon/. I have had a look at the install_python instructions but it does not explain where I need to install the contents of the downloaded file. Do I install it in a python folder under xampp or do I install them into a corresponding already available folder in xampp or what.

Xampp version in us is 1.7.3
On Windows 7 64-bit

If someone could help me install python please in a not technical way.

Thanks

GW

Thanks for that. 8)


I am not absolutely sure that the Python addon dated 2005 is suitable for XAMPP for Windows as some have suggested it was compiled for Linux paths.

However there are some useful and helpful links in these Advanced Forum Search Results for installing Python in XAMPP for Windows.

Good luck. :)

Hmm, thanks for the reply, I have been reading up on many of those search results (and continue to do so) but many are simply too technical for me. I am simply wanting to have python installed to work with Xampp, if you know of a 'non techie' and 'simple' way to install it and have it working with xampp then please let me know.

Thanks
