Hello Apache Friends,
I wanted to install (first time) the Xampp for Windows version 1.8.1 using the installer "xampp-win32-1.8.1-VC9-installer.exe" on URL (http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html) and followed the instructions given.
But, somehow, the installer became "xampp-win32-1.7.4-VC6-installer.exe" in my personal downloads folder (I did not notice it then) and it installed Xampp 1.7.4 instead.
I am not an expert in computers, so I try to follow carefully the steps... I do not understand what happened...
Here are my questions (I am sorry if they seem basic...):
1 - Is version 1.7.4 fully compatible with version 1.7.7 (this one is used in the computers in the class I am attending)?
2 - Can / Should I upgrade to version 1.8.1 or 1.7.7 (or just leave my actual 1.7.4 version as is)?
Please note that I had to manually change specifications in 2 files for the Apache ports (using the topic http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?p=51971) in order to get Apache running.
I would like to get some advice before proceeding with the local installation of WordPress.
Thanks in advance.
