having trouble with xampp after reinstalling windows

Postby omidarmat » 20. July 2015 07:05

Hello everyone.
well, im not an expert on xampp and things related to it, it is actually my first time using xampp.

I installed xampp on Drive D on my PC, everything was good and i was editing my website for a few days when suddenly windows crashed. I had to reinstall windows and i did. now i dont know how to open my website in xampp on localhost. The "xampp" folder and everything in it still exists in drive D on my PC. i installed xampp on drive D in a seperate folder called "xampp2" in drive D (other than "xampp" folder created during xampp installation before windows crash) and then i copy/pasted my website folder from the old "htdocs" to the new one installed in the new xampp htdocs folder. now when i type localhost/CES (CES is my website) it says "could not conncet to database".
what should i do?

thanks.

The htdocs folder only contains your HTML/PHP scripts, but not your MySQL Data. This is stored in /xampp/Mysql/data and you have to retrieve this as well.

Did you install a newer version of Xampp or the same version as before?

I dont know hat you mean by that, but i wonder, why you dont have a backup for the whole thing? After things are going wrong it is to late.
