How to Upgrade MariaDB in XAMPP

Postby rxampp » 09. May 2023 17:23

Hi Friends

How do I upgrade an individual component of XAMPP.
(Any one of these components after X: viz.: Apache / MariaDB / PHP / ProFTP)

What I require immediate is to replace MariaDB 10.4.28 to 10.6.7 or higher.

Am trying to install Moodle (latest version), that requires MariaDB 10.6.7.
Wondering how do I replace it within XAMPP folders. (Not a separate install of the database - this takes 400MB of space).
Yes there are suggestions on the internet for doing a separate install of the database and starting it with xampp).

OS: Lubuntu 22.10 * LXQT
HP Laptop * AMD Athelon * Radeon 5.

You cannot upgrade single components in Xampp. If you need newer version of Apache or MariaDB etc., either wait for new Xampp release or dont use Xampp. Thats one of the disadvantages on using Xampp, which comes preconfigured to your PC.

Most Linux distributions provide as well Apache, MariaDB etc. in their repositories and mostly with newer release or the option to upgrade to newer version. You may also think about flatpak or snap. But these do not come preconfigured like Xampp.
