I use xampp on 3 different Centos 6.4 servers. When I create a backup, all seems to go well. However I get a "tar" error when I try to restore. Here's the commands and results I get:
[root@localhost lampp]# ./lampp backup some.stupid.password
Backing up databases...
Backing up configuration, log and htdocs files...

Take care of /opt/lampp/backup/xampp-backup-31-10-13.sh
[root@localhost lampp]# cd backup/
[root@localhost backup]# ll

cat: VERSION: No such file or directory
Installed: XAMPP 1.8.3-1
Backup from: XAMPP
The backup sofware is not able to handle different XAMPP versions.
Your backuped configuration from may not work with 1.8.3-1 and may need manually corrections.
XAMPP: Do you want to continue [nein]
This worked on an older version but quit working on 1.8.x
Thanks for any help.
