PHP 7.1.1 on XAMPP thows GET ping_extension 404 error

Postby TomXampp » 21. January 2017 16:56

I just upgraded my PHP on XAMPP for Windows to PHP 7.1.1. The Apache error log now reports this error multiple times when I start XAMPP and when I run localhost processes:

Code: Select all
127.0.0.1 - - [21/Jan/2017:09:48:50 -0600] "GET /ping_extension.json HTTP/1.1" 404 1053 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/55.0.2883.87 Safari/537.36"


Any idea how to fix this?

Ask where you found that Upgrade. I cannot find an Xampp Upgrade for PHP 7.1.1

I installed PHP 7.1.1 manually in XAMPP. There isn't yet a XAMPP for PHP 7.1.#. To get the binaries, go to https://secure.php.net/downloads.php

But Xampp cannot give support for non-Xampp tools.

PHP is a XAMPP tool. Executing PHP is part of what it does. I've upgraded PHP within XAMPP for years now, ahead of scheduled releases of XAMPP that include that newer version of XAMPP. It's not an automatic process; you have to know which files to configure, etc. But you're mistaken if you think you can't upgrade PHP within XAMPP. (Although some versions of XAMPP do not support some PHP upgrades; for example, you could not upgrade PHP in XAMPP for 5.#.# to PHP 7.#.#; its architecture wouldn't allow it. Once XAMPP for PHP 7.0.0 was released, all subsequent versions of PHP (7.0.1, 7.0.2, 7.0.3...all the way through 7.0.14) were implementable in XAMPP.

Believe what you want to believe. As you see, there is no support.

You are mistaken. Of course you can upgrade on your own. But it is not supported (not in this forum and not by Bitnami). Thats what i try to tell you.

I support Toms view on this.
It's rational that you should need to test your development against ongoing versions.

But this does not really help anybody. What about supporting Toms problems? Everything else is totally useless. Support him! There is nobody else.

I don't provide any support for XAMPP installations a user has replaced any of the core single components.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

It's like porn for programmers 8)
