Moving whole XAMPP

Postby transbetty » 13. July 2017 19:21

Hello,

I installed XAMPP to default C:\xampp, now I want to move it elsewhere (C:\Net\xampp).

Is there a list of config files which require search & replace ? I'm not very good with regular expressions so I would rather do it with simple search where needed.

Thanks for the tips

- Stop all XAMPP Processes
- Unregister all XAMPP Windows Services
- move the entire XAMPP folder
- execute the setup_xampp.bat script (which will reset all paths for you)

Then you should be able to start the Processes, set Windows Services again, etc.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
