Xampp... why 64bit version

Postby Francesco72 » 05. July 2018 08:51

Hi,

I'm a php programmer. I'll explain why a 64bit version of xampp would be needed. 32-bit version of PHP has problems with some features. An example is the timestamp command. In the 32 bit version, the timestamp does not recognize the dates above 01/19/2038 while in the 64 bit version this problem does not exist. I hope that a Xampp 64 bit version will soon be released.

Hi,

PHPs DateTime class can handle Dates above 01/19/2038.
It is a recommendation for years now (since the DateTime class was introduced in PHP 5.2) not to use UNIX timestamps for storing and processing Dates any more.
From my point of view that is no argument for a 64 bit PHP version.


best wishes,

There is already Xampp 64 bit version, simply switch over to Linux.

It's right, but unfortunately I have many databases that use timestamp ... now it is impossible to change them in the datetime class ... with my post I was hoping to contribute to implement a 64 bit version ...

Xampp is not designed for production servers, only for local development. Your company should go for a different distribution than Xampp anyway. I dont think Bitnami will release 64bit Windows version.
