Installed two versions of XAMPP in their own folders

Postby appyape » 13. September 2014 13:10

Hello

I am on Windows 8 and trying to install two versions of XAMPP because I need two different PHP versions for different projects.

I installed XAMPP 1.8.2 first, and then XAMPP 1.7.7. I installed them in their own folders e.g. C:/xampp1.8.2 and C:/xampp1.7.7. But I noticed that in the "Uninstall Program" window, I could see one entry for XAMPP. It was showing as XAMPP 1.7.7 in the name column but with 1.8.2 in the version column of "Uninstall Program" window. I am having issues with launching localhost.

Can someone please show me the correct way to install two different versions of XAMPP?

Thank you.

Use the .zip Versions instead of the installer.
Extract the XAMPP versions you need into their own folder and execute the setup_xampp.bat file of each version.
Then you can use both XAMPP installation by starting the components with help of the control panel.

But you can not run both XAMPP versions at the same time, because they are using the same ports.
