There is neither an Upgrade for Xampp, nor an Upgrade for PHP/MySQL as part of Xampp. Only full installation (after full deinstallation).

You cannot upgrade Xampp.

The only way for getting a new version is a full deinstallation followed by a full installation of the new version.

But Nobbie, getting a full installation of the new version is not an option since it doesn't run on most osX versions (only the newer ones). So if someone with osX tiger / leopard / snow leopard needs a PHP version higher than 5.3.1 (for Symfony, or mediawiki, or...) the only option seems to be 1.7.3 and a way to update the php version.

Yes, maybe. But I am a simple User of this forum as yourself and I am not an developer of Xampp and i simply answered the question. If you are unsatisfied and/or have serious problems, contact the development team.

Either go for a newer OSX Version or use a different OS, if there is no other option. I recommend to run a Linux based server anyway.

You could always try installing apache, php, mysql, and phpmyadmin individually into OS X
