Postby capt_nemo777 » 18. November 2013 15:14

I have a xampp with php version 5.4.4, how am I gonna upgrade only the php version, into the latest stable release from php.net website?,
what i did was, I downloaded the thread safe binary version of php5.5.6 and extracted it to my xampp directory with a different folder name..
e.g
Code: Select all
c:\xampp\php556


then I opened C:\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-xampp.conf and edited the following lines

Code: Select all
LoadFile "C:/xampp/php556/php5ts.dll"
LoadModule php5_module "C:/xampp/php556/php5apache2_4.dll"

PHPINIDir "C:/xampp/php556"


I tried to restart apache but it won't start at all...so how ?

Upgrading any of the single components is not supported with XAMPP.
Backup your data and restore it in a different XAMPP version is the way to go.
