I currently have XAMPP 1.8.3 and I want to update to the latest version i.e. XAMPP 5.6.8. I have many databases and websites locally in XAMPP folder.
I tried updating with the following method-
I took the backup of htdocs folder and data folder (subfolder of mysql folder) and replaced both after installing the new XAMPP version.
But mysql service is not starting when I replaced data folder.
Can anyone help me with this? Well can I expect "auto updater" feature for XAMPP in the next version ?
