32 bit versions

Postby Desktobdzija » 20. March 2020 08:48

Hello,
I'm new here and my question/problem is very simple:

I need a 32 bit version, but in download sections I see only 64 bit versions

Hi,

The answer is also very simple: Bitnami only releases 64 bit versions in present and future.
Currently there are 3 active release branches (7.4.X, 7.3.X, 7.2.X) and each branch release counts 6 bundles. So each release includes 18 single bundles.

If Bitnami would release 32 bit versions too this would increase their work for each release significantly.

But what about past?
Are there any acceptably old 32 bit version that I could install and use until I migrate to 64 bit OS?

Take a look at https://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/files/XAMPP%20Windows/
The releases from 2019-03-08 were the last ones containing 32 bit binaries.

Thank you very much!
I downloaded xampp-portable-win32-7.3.2-0-VC15-installer.exe. Are there any preferable path (like 'C:\WAMP' for wamp servers)?
I would like to install it on 'C:\razvoj\XAMPP732'. Is it acceptable?

As far as the path doesn't contain any whitespaces or special characters this should be fine.
If something isn't working directly, try to execute the setup_xampp.bat script once by double clicking it.
This script should update all needed paths in the configuration files.

I was in a hurry and installed it soon after my question. Thanks anyway!

(I chickened out and accepted offered path (C:\XAMPP), but next time I'll be braver :))

hoping they would release 32 bit version again, we use dual-core cpu from ~2007 to run smol-med business. and 64 bit with less than 4gb ram are bad

They definately wont do that. Any hope is in vain.

Anyway, its 64bit CPU.

Even less than 4gb is running BETTER(!) in 64bit than in 32bit. There are plenty of benchmarks which proofed 64bit superior to 32bit - even for small amount of memory. And last not least, you might add some RAM to your PC. There is actually not a single advantage running a 32bit Operating System on 64bit hardware.
