Questions about Xampp

Postby Saua » 20. August 2016 11:48

Hi.
I installed Xampp in an VM for testing purposes.

1º Is it better to use Xampp with UAC disabled?
2º To install Wordpress in Xampp must I enable the Apache and MySQL services ?
3º When I start Apache and MySQL, would it be better to enbale also the ADMIN option?

I´m asking because in a previous installation of Xampp, I always get error messages with \temp!

The ADMIN icon is beside the START icon (Xampp control panel). Is it necessary to start?

But is it necessary to start the Apache and MySQL services when I use Xampp?
What is the difference between enabling the services and not?

The services will start these apps with Windows start. Do you need XAMPP every time Windows starts, enable them, otherwise don't.

The Admin Buttons are only for faster and easier access. They will open phpMyAdmin or the XAMPP Dashboard on click, but you can also access them manually.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
