Hi, I am running XAMPP 1.7.7 on D drive. I want to upgrade to the latest Xampp 5.6.19 (just downloaded). There are a few issues. First, when I try to install the new version it wants the XAMPP directory to be empty. Okay, I have a backup copy of the whole directory. Onward. So here's what I did:
Uninstalled XAMPP, emptied the directroy.
Installed the new one.
Tried copying the htdocs back from the backup. Tried copying the MySQL.
That didn't seem to work. My MySQL databases and tables were still gone.
Tried copying the htdocs back. SO far so good.
Tried creating a database. It worked. Tried importing tables (CREATE TABLE... ) which CLAIMS to have worked but the table doesn't show.
I finally gave up and went back to the old version and restored the data so I'm back at square one. I've had problems trying to find information on installing on a drive other than C so I'm back to the old version and working with it. IT works fine BUT it would be nice to have the most current version.
If anyone could steer me to some documentation of some hints as to what to do I would SO appreciate it.
Thank you so much.
