Is it possible to add MySQL later without reinstalling XAMPP

Postby WScott84 » 28. September 2015 18:46

Hello,

I installed XAMPP months ago, but did not need MySQL at the time, but now I do. Is it possible to add MySQL without reinstall XAMPP and losing all my customizations?

If you reinstall/update XAMPP without uninstalling it first you do not lose your files and configurations.

Anyway it's not a bad idea to do a backup first.

If I try to reinstall it, it says the folder is not empty.
