I tried the upgrade from webmin but it seemed to stop LAMPP recognising it. i think it has somthing to do with the folder name changing. which just made me think: why didnt i trename the folder back to webmin
ok im being stupid again sorry
i will look at the FAQ anyway. if you need any help translating it i have some friends who speak near fluent german and who i could pursuade to help. although you seem to speak fluent english so i doubt you will need it.
