The Installation

* Method A: Installation with the Installer

Using the installer version is the easiest way to install XAMPP.

After the installation is complete, you will find XAMPP under Start | Programs | XAMPP. You can use the XAMPP Control Panel to start/stop all server and also install/uninstall services.

The XAMPP control panel for start/stop Apache, MySQL, FilaZilla & Mercury or install these server as services.

* Method B: "Installation" without the Installer

Unzip the zip archives into the folder of your choice. XAMPP is extracting to the subdirectory "[Ziel]\xampp" below the selected target directory. Now start the file "setup_xampp.bat", to adjust the XAMPP configuration to your system.
If you choose a root directory "C:\" as target, you must not start "setup_xampp.bat".
Like with the installer version, you can now use the "XAMPP Control Panel" for additional tasks.

* I want to start XAMPP without setup

If you extract XAMPP in a top level folder like "C:\" or "D:\", you can start most servers like Apache or MySQL directly without execution of the file "setup_xampp.bat".
Not using the setup script, or selecting relative paths in the setup script, is preferred if you are installing XAMPP on a usb drive. Because on each pc such a drive can have an other drive letter. You can switch from absolute to relative paths at any time with the setup script.

The Practice

* Start, stop, test the XAMPP servers

The universal control center is the "XAMPP Control Panel" (thanks www.nat32.com). It is started with:
As you know this from older XAMPP versions, you can also use some batchfiles to start/stop the servers:
Apache & MySQL start:
Apache & MySQL stop:
Nur Apache start:
Nur Apache stop:
Nur MySQL start:
Nur MySQL stop:
Mercury Mailserver start:
Mercury Mailserver stop:
FileZilla Server start:
FileZilla Server stop:


After starting of Apache (and MySQL), go to the address http://localhost/ or in your browser and examine all of the XAMPP examples and tools.

* Installing a particular server as as service

Each server in XAMPP you can install also as Windows service:
Apache service install:
Apache service uninstall:
MySQL service install:
MySQL service uninstall:
FileZilla service (un)install:
No service installation available!

* The XAMPP upgrades

With a new XAMPP version, there is normally a upgrade package too. Additionally, we have sometimes small patches between the releases.
An upgrade is always problematically and there can be errors in the upgrade process. Because of this, you should always make a backup from your XAMPP folder before you upgrade it. werden.
We are trying to adjust your configuration files during the upgrade progress, if necessary. Especially if a new XAMPP have a lot of changes compared to the old one, we are providing no upgrade package for security reasons. Sorry.
As with the add-ons, install the upgrade directly into the XAMPP directory (e.g. "C:\xampp"). And you must also start the setup script "setup_xampp.bat".

* Step 2: Installation

After downloading simply type in the following commands:
  1. Go to a Linux shell and login as the system administrator root: su
  2. Extract the downloaded archive file to /opt: tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.8.1.tar.gz -C /opt
    Warning: Please use only this command to install XAMPP. DON'T use any Microsoft Windows tools to extract the archive, it won't work.
    Warning 2: already installed XAMPP versions get overwritten by this command.
That's all. XAMPP is now installed below the /opt/lampp directory.

* Step 3: Start

To start XAMPP simply call this command: /opt/lampp/lampp start
You should now see something like this on your screen:
Starting XAMPP 1.8.1...
LAMPP: Starting Apache...
LAMPP: Starting MySQL...
LAMPP started.

Ready. Apache and MySQL are running.
If you get any error messages please take a look at the Linux FAQ.

* Step 4: Test

OK, that was easy but how can you check that everything really works? Just type in the following URL at your favourite web browser: http://localhost
Now you should see the start page of XAMPP containing some links to check the status of the installed software and some small programming examples.

The Instant Art example: A small PHP/GD program (since 0.9.6pre1 also a flashy PHP/Ming example, see screenshot). Thanks to Anke Arnold for her font »AnkeCalligraph«.
