Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Latest version with MySQL

Postby Jedis » 13. January 2016 20:02

Hello,

I need the latest version to support MySQL, not MariaDB. Is there a manual way to switch it out? We're moving our websites to a LAMP stack, but want to do the development on Windows. Since the Linux boxes have MySQL, we want our development environment to match.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

The latest versions with MySQL was XAMPP 5.6.12 & XAMPP 5.5.28, both can be found here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/f ... 20Windows/

There are always manual ways, but the effort is not worth it. And XAMPP is only supported as bundle. So if you want to manually include a MySQL version in current XAMPP versions, you are on your own.
If you want the full control about the components, you need to install and configure them all as single components.

best wishes,

Thanks. I hope the developers reconsider and make MySQL an option again in the future. My company will not go with software that won't receive updates and MariaDB is virtually unheard of in the corporate world.

Well, XAMPP is not made for companies, so thats okay.

Thats not true. MariaDB is used by many Hosters and big companies. Wikipedia and Google for example are two of the big players replacing their MySQL Databases by MariaDB.

MariaDB is more open source, gets quicker updates as MySQL. Many of the MySQL Enterprise functions are already included/rebuild in the free MariaDB version (for example performance enhancements).

So there are good reasons, even for companies, considering alternatives to MySQL.
But i can also understand if a company don't want to change a Database Management system which works for years now.

Thanks. I asked and they're unwilling to go with MariaDB. Looks like we'll have to go with another solution that supports MySQL.

Yes of course, Xampp is NOT meant for production environments. A company *really" should go with a professional server installation (Ubuntu Server or similar), not with a development environment for private people, that do not have enough skills in order to install and maintain a server.
