Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.
I've been developing a WordPress site on an old XP Pro localhost computer running xampp v3.2.1.
I want to move the site to a newer Win7 machine running a much newer xampp version.
Can anyone tell me which components (folders, files, database, etc) must be copied from the old computer to the new computer?

-1º Go to phpMyadmin select your database (it should be the WordPress databases) go to "Export" at the top and click "Go", save it on some folder.
-2º Go to your htdocs folder (it is inside Xampp folder) and copy the folder that contain your project to the same folder where you saved your database on 1º.
-3º Install the xampp version you want in your machine.
-4º go to phpMyadmin (of you new installation ofc, not the old one) create a database with the exact name and collation that is the database you had on 1º.
-5º Select this database you just created and go to "import" and chose your file (the one you save on 1º) click "Go"
-6º Go to your htdocs folder (it is inside Xampp folder) and copy the folder of your project (the one you saved on 2º).
