Updating to latest version?

Postby gwmbox » 27. March 2015 04:11

Hi guys, I have not found the info on this yet so I'd like to ask;

Can I install the latest version over the current version I have? Or do I need to back it all up, uninstall xampp and then install the new xampp and then restore each site and db?

Current version: XAMPP Version: 1.8.3
Control Panel Version: 3.2.1 [ Compiled: May 7th 2013 ]

Cheers

This! Otherwise you risk to destroy your current XAMPP environment.

Best wishes,
