I need to have multiple php versions on my local Windows 8 machine so I have downloaded .zip file of XAMPP 5.6.3 ... I have renamed the folder to Xampp-php-5.6.3. When I try to Start the Apache or MySQL it doesn't start. After a bit of look around - I opened httpd.conf and noticed that the ServerRoot was set to /xampp/apache - I changed this to /xampp-php-5.6.3/apache. I then opened up mysql.exe and I can see the folder name is /xampp/....
I can manually change all these values in httpd.conf and my.ini but I need to know what other files need modifications??
or is there any other simpler way to achieve what I am doing?
I already have php5.3 and php5.4 working this way but I can't remember how I got them working. any help will be appreciated. thanks

A few days ago i wrote a german posting here in this forum which exactly explains how to do so (but its german), without the hassle of renaming the Xampp installation. The idea behind my solution is based on using different VirtualHosts for different PHP Versions within one and only one Xampp installation:
