Xampp & Php4


Recommended Posts

Hi, guys!


Does anyone know why PHP-SWITCH (in earlier versions of XAMPP) won't work?


I've tried XAMPP-win32-1.4.6 and XAMPP-win32-1.4.9 with the same dismal result... PHP-SWITCH insists that Apache is running, no matter how many times I shutdown Apache. I don't understand how more than one instance of Apache can be running on the same port (80).


To determine whether or not the problem could be a possible bug in earlier versions of XAMPP, I downlaoded and installed XAMPP-win32-1.5.1; and... surprise, surprise... PHP-SWITCH works exactly as it should [in 1.5.1].


BTW, the reason for my insistence on an earlier version of XAMPP (1.4.6 or 1.4.9) is that my target applications (vtigerCRM, etc.) require older versions of PHP and MySQL.


At this juncture, I'm still not sure whether or not there's a bug in earlier versions of PHP-SWITCH (XAMPP 1.4.6 and 1.4.9). But I do know it works just fine in XAMPP v1.5.1.


Any thoughts, ideas or assitance you might have to offer would be greatly appreciated.

Hello chima,


Welcome to the forums. If your not sure if its still running, either check in task manager or check your ports that are open.


You can of course run the xmapp apache shut down script. If it gives you an error saying its already closed, then php-switch is buggy as you say.


I think if memory does serve me correctley, it is buggy
