My web host uses PHP 5.3.13

Postby ben1960 » 16. November 2014 21:02

Hello,

I am currently using XAMPP 1.8.3, which uses PHP 5.5.15.

The company that hosts my website uses PHP 5.3.13. :(

It seems like it would be a good idea to use the same version of PHP in my development environment that I use in my deployment environment.

How would I switch to using PHP 5.3.13 with XAMPP?

Regards,

Ben

Hi Ben,

Use a XAMPP version that comes your PHP version as close as possible, which will be XAMPP 1.7.7 (PHP 5.3.8).

best wishes,

Thank you, Altrea. Your answer worked for me.

XAMPP 1.7.7 provides PHP 5.3.8. This works for me, because I need PHP 5.3.7 or later.

Where can I read about the differences between PHP 5.3.8 and 5.3.13?

Regards,

Ben

I am keeping a wiki page for the difference XAMPP version numbers of the single components up to date:

How do I uninstall XAMPP 1.8.3? It appears in the Start menu, but not in the control panel for removing programs. The location of XAMPP is the root of my C drive.

Delete the folder in your start menu and delete the entire XAMPP folder.
