Current XAMPP versions does not have an upgrade functionailty, so if you want to change to a current version it has to be always a fresh new installation.

best wishes,

Hi Altrea. I have a question more. If I install a new Xampp and replace the htdocs file by the old one, the aplications that I had (Joomla) would work properly? Thanks in advance.

Regards :wink:
