For reasons connected with the very outdated live environment I have to work with at the moment, I am running xampp 1.3 (1.3 primarily for PHP 4.x.x). I also have 1.7.7.
1.3 doesn't seem to have an equivalent to xampp-control.exe. I did try copying it over from the later version but, although it says in the console it's started Apache, it hasn't really.
Is there any way of using/modifying xampp-control.exe to work with the earlier version? It's a bit of a pain having to work through command windows.
Any help appreciated. Thanks.
