Installing on a different directory to c:\xampp

Postby 4dallas » 28. February 2016 05:11

Hello Xampp

I install the lasted xampp for windows version on a directory path "c:\OtherProgramFiles\xampp_2" and the controller wants to start mysql/apache on C:\xampp\mysql\bin\mysqld.exe.

How do I update the directory path away from the default?

Thanks,
Dallas

There is a batch file in Xampp, i think its called setup_xampp.bat (or vice verse xampp_setup.bat) and as far as I know, you should execute this file when you install Xampp at a different location than the default folder.

Hi,

Nobbie is correct. Execute the setup_xampp.bat script.

If you have set a windows service to start Apache with system start you will need to remove and set it again.

Best wishes,
