Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Upgrading to 1.8.1 from 1.8.0

Postby sunrisecc » 01. October 2012 14:43

I may try over-installing 1.8.1 over 1.8.0. My 1.8.0 was built fresh.

Anyone have any success?

Thanks in advance.

oy that's gonna be a pain, is how I usually do it but was hoping for a faster update since its only a x.x.1 release :( does this mean there will not be an upgrade package to simplify the process in the future?

I did attempt an over-install and PHPMyAdmin could not connect to mysql. I then decided that it was worth investigating. I uninstalled, installed 1.8.1, etc including rebuilding the databases and have moved forward.

yup more or less I did the same but I am horrible at upgrading I always mess up and spend a couple hours trying to fix the things I mess up even with detailed instructions like that :P

Got through it but feel like its really hogging resources compared to older versions ... o.O ... though it is faster loading sites, other resource hungry programs I have running will lock from time to time now might be unrelated to XAMPP though this system is aging lol
