How to upgrade apache to 2.4.6 without interfering with xamp

Postby KeithNWS » 06. November 2013 22:36

I recently installed xampp 1.8.3.1 which comes with apache 2.4.4. I need to upgrade to apache 2.4.6 without interrupting the functionality of the xampp package. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You cannot. Xampp comes as distribution with many "hardcoded" dependencies.

If you like to use your own releases of Apache, PHP, MySQL etc., simply dont use Xampp, but install all components separately. This is not as difficult as it might appear, each component is coming with a full featured installer and it is well documented, how to connect Apache to PHP and MySQL etc.

But it is definately quite impossible to "break out" from a Xampp Installation.

Thanks Nobbie, been busy, but I figured that would be the answer but was hoping for a way to accomplish it without having to rebuild.
