XAMPP Apache Missing Dependencies due to Overriding

Postby eslintpurity » 13. January 2019 10:00

I have an old XAMPP ver3.2.2 installed on my windows 7 system which I have been using to manage some never deployed joomla and wordpress sites. Apache and MySQL ports got blocked perhaps due to some newly installed softwares. Out of intense frustration to get it fixed quickly, I reinstalled another XAMPP found on my system which I tagged XAMPP-1 during installation. This time, it was ver5.6.15, I thought it was the same version as the installed - Failed to check the version. Well, I copied the apache folder from it and replaced the old apache. Now things have gone weirder. Apache and MYSQL gives no sign of showing up again. I intend upgrading to the latest version that supports PHP 7, but then I have to login to backup my files. Really lost and confused here. I understand it was a dump move on my side. Any help would be much appreciated. Moreover, XAMPP 3.2.2 isn't found online anymore, or could I be missing something.?

Below is the message from XAMPP

No you didn't. 3.2.2 is the version number of the component "XAMPP control panel", not of the whole XAMPP version.
The XAMPP version is derived from the included PHP version since PHP 5.5.19 (previous versions are numbered 1.X)

Do you have a copy or a backup of your old Xampp installation?

Yes I do Nobbie, except that the Apache has been replaced with the new apache folder and then I deleted the new XAMPP

You could open the file \xampp\install\.version to see which XAMPP version number your old XAMPP installation have had, download that version as zip version, replace the Apache folder with the default one and execute the setup_xampp.bat script to reset the paths.
