Am I allowed to change XAMPP's distribution zip file?

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

Am I allowed to change XAMPP's distribution zip file?

Postby mosh2 » 02. October 2016 11:45

Hi all,

I've developed a web -based application, and I'd like to give my users a minimal package of Xampp (without MySQL and tomcat folders). That means that I'd like to take the original ZIP file (from https://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/) and remove some unnecessary folders (but leave Apache folder since I need its web server).

Am I allowed to do so? Am I allowed to give my users such a kit?

Thank you
mosh2

Will you also give the support for the "stripped" Xampp version? I would not do so, why not simply use the whole Xampp package? Or download Apache from a standalone project (see http://mirror.synyx.de/apache//httpd/binaries/win32/)

Only for saving a few bytes download space??

Why not just go get Apache on it's own then? Xampp's Apache comes from www.apachelounge.com and we have them at www.apachehaus.com as well.
