I want to move all writeable files elsewhere (eg logs, etc)

Postby crystalgeyser » 21. December 2014 22:08

Hi
I'm trying xampp to learn wordpress, so I've installed 5.6.3 on my win7 box.
I've installed the apache, webalizer, and mysql. I don't remember if phpmyadmin was a separate choice or if it came with mysql, but that's installed too.
I've set up a partition on a different harddrive for where I want all changeable files to go, and I've managed to set up htdocs over there, as well my mysql database.

My question is, what other files does xampp write to? Like logs or anything else.
I want to put those files in the partition as well.

Thanks

Yes I'm sure many know

Apache writes logs and a pid file
see c:/xampp/apache/conf/*.conf and
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/logs.html
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/mp ... ml#pidfile

php can write a log, see php.ini
mysql writes a log and pid file, see my.ini
filezilla writes a log, see it's settings dialog
mercurymail writes a log I'm sure, see settings inside it.

there may be more ... explore.
