XAMPP install issue ** RESOLVED **

Postby nhp » 06. August 2014 22:48

Hi,

Would someone be able to help me fix my mistake.

These are the steps I performed on my Windows 7 computer.

1. I downloaded and installed these files (per an older YouTube video).

httpd-2.4.10-win32-VC11.zip
php-5.5.15-Win32-VC11-x86.zip
mysql-installer-web-community-5.6.19.0.msi
phpMyAdmin-4.2.6-all-languages

At this point, I think everything was working but I may have had an issue with phpMyAdmin.
2. This is where I REALLY messed up.

I downloaded and installed:

xampp-win32-1.8.3-4-VC11-installer.exe


<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
I get this error when I start the XAMPP Control Panel

You either need #1 or #2. You don't want both. You should decide if you want an XAMPP stack or install individual components yourself.

I want to go XAMPP stack only. Unfortunately, I am a newbie and not sure how to "recover" from here. My main concern is keeping my computer clean/free of un-used stuff. Any help you can provide would be great.

Thanks~

Then I would uninstall all that stuff in your first block. You need to make sure it all gets removed as you have services installed. Once that is done, XAMPP should sort itself out or let you know if there are any other problems.

Sorry,
I'm not sure about Apache uninstall process.

I ran “httpd.exe -k uninstall” on the command line which "removed" the Apache2.4 service

Since there is nothing under the Add/Remove Programs tool within Control Panel. Could you tell me if there other commands I need to run? I have been looking online for uninstall instructions but unable to find anything (current).

If the service is truly removed, then it should be safe to just remove the files now.

To my knowledge, I have completed the uninstall process for Apache and MySQL:
httpd-2.4.10-win32-VC11.zip
mysql-installer-web-community-5.6.19.0.msi

I have been researching the uninstall process for PHP and PHP and phpMyAdmin.
phpMyAdmin-4.2.6-all-languages
php-5.5.15-Win32-VC11-x86.zip

And as far as I can tell all I need to do is delete the PHP folder.
Can anyone tell me if this is true?

Thanks-

Steps I needed to do to resolve my issue:

1. Went to C:\Apache24\bin
2. Ran “httpd.exe -k uninstall”
3. Deleted C:\Apache24 folder

4. Uninstalled MySQL under the Add/Remove Programs

5. Deleted folder C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL folder
6. Deleted folder C:\ProgramData\MySQL
7. Remove any environment variables pertaining to PHP and Apache (I found none).
8. Deleted PHP folder

Start XAMPP control panel under programs

I got the Welcome to XAMPP for Windows screen.

Congratulations:
You have successfully installed XAMPP on this system!

You will need to read the instructions on this screen to make sure everything works.

Thank you for your help; JJ_Tagy
