Ok just thought I should post this after reading some of the other guys posts.
If you have d/led the latest version of Xampp the installer version, and you are having problems with it. Then d/l the 7-zip version of the same file and place it in your root of your drive. Then open the file and install the the root. Once this is done you will have to run xamppsetup.bat in the (drive letter):\xampp\ directory, to run setup open the file. This will ask you some simple questions, just answer them truthfully to the best of your configuration knowledge, and that should be it.
To run the server afterwards, simple go to your programs in start and find Xampp the click of Start. To end the server do the same again but click Stop. Ahhh actually I just checked this version didn't install start menu shortcuts LOL. Ok to start open xampp_start.bat under (drive letter):\xampp\
and close with (drive letter):\xampp\xampp_stop.bat both these files start/stop Apache services and MySQL services with DB in tow.
To view database activaties go and open winmysqladmin.exe under (drive letter):\xampp\mysql\bin\ this allow you to monitor the mysql DBs.
I'm going to try and install Tomcat and JSP support into the XAmpp bundle to see if it works.

Decided your bundle today, just wanted to say good one mate! I had previous had installed a copy of Omni HTTPd and Apache, both with PHP. I was trying to work on some PHP examples from the O'Reilly's PHP Cookbook, but discovered it needed PEAR. This is when things got BAD. I had to d/l and install mysql and get it running with the Apache server then find out what PEAR was and figure a way to d/l it and configure it.
To make a long story short, I was at wits end with PEAR when I came across your All-In-One bundle, and once I read the lines Apache + PHP + MySQL + Perl + PEAR, I jumped up and down and said YEAH! I had a bit of trouble installing it at first. The latest copy's installer doesn't setup properly, or maybe its me. Anyhow I d/led the 7-zip version and manually installed it in C:\xampp and all is good now.
Very well done! I love this package!
BTW just one suggestion if I may? I agree with previous posters that you may want to include or think of including the Tomcat plugin for Apache and JSP plugin so people could have the best of two of the most powerful languages around. I think it would make for an amazing package. Again well done and thanks on the behalf of all web developers for simplying what fools had made complex. Remember the saying KISS - Keep it simple stupid ;p

XAMPP: Error 1! Couldn't start Apache
Wed Apr 7 18:22:21 2004
Assalam 0 Alaikum.
Hello allz i had tried many servers but I have nEvEr seen a server package like this as I came across the net. ApacheFriends gives the most servers I have ever seen. It is the best 1. I hav a very slow internet connection so before peoples couldnot access to my server. But as soon as I took Lampp, everyone can visit my site and I am not facing any problem. So thanx alot to the Apache Friends. And respect to them.

XAMPP rocks. really.
My heartiest tonns of thanks and wishes to the team.!
I dont know how i got here. But i really thank my eyes for seing this link somewhere.
I was having some real time with apachetoolbox, compiling in so many modules and getting so many errors. (I must be doing something wrong of course since apachetoolbox is nice and flexible too).
But i realized, I just need XAMPP. and in fact i think just about 90% of the people using apache need just that. nothing else.
Believe me. XAMPP is the best open source tool i have seen yet in last 7 years as system admin.
Kudos to the team. If i can be useful for something I would love to be part of it.
Thanks. You really have done a commendable job. keep it up.

I have been using XAMPP since two years now, first WAMPP and LAMPP now XAMPP. This is the best Apache, PHP, MySQL configuration I have seen. I just installed it on my SPARC running Solaris 8, very stable. This is simply great.
This is great. Saves countless hours of config work on Windows. I am about to set up a Linux server and am definitely going with this set up . A great product.

i have installed xampp, and was wondering if it is ok to remove the xampp etc folders from the local host, not install folders, just those that appear when you ftp into the local host. thanks all

I just installed on Fedora. WOW!!!! Saved me hours of configuration. So easy to install made me feel like I had been doing it the hard way for the last year (20+ small business servers and counting).

XAMPP: Error 1! Couldn't start Apache!
This seems pretty cool if it would work. Please help.
Mon Mar 1 17:52:44 2004
Sorry for not writing earlier but have been using your XAMPP since 0.8 and absolutely LOVE IT!!! Never a problem, just works and works great. Keep up the great work!! Just one teeny thing though, on the English home page, youlist Filezilla as being 0.8.7 with XAMPP 1.3 and it is actually 0.8.8.

Thu Feb 26 17:20:45 2004
Best package around, two thumbs up for everyone who is involved. I just love it.
Thu Feb 26 16:36:49 2004
i've been ripping my hair out trying to install all these things manually, i then gave up, downloaded this and its working! great stuff, thanks loads
one thing though, is there a say that apache can be used using the monitor instead of the bak files? they would make it even better!!

Would you consider putting in squirelmail also?

Very good package. I had never used Apache or MySQL before, and it have been easier with XAMPP.
Thanks a lot.

How fantastic is this to have working configured environment installed in just minutes ... really amazing effort free!
Can simply get on and play to learn.

Excellent, excellent, excellent.
What more can one say

Hmmm, if it works me love you lot!!
Thu Jan 29 18:56:06 2004
Very good package indeed! I tried both it on Linux and Windows, and it works. Just wish there's more English text to help those of us who get stuck somehow, not because of xampp but of what we are trying to do. That is not your fault, of course. Why don't I learn German instead of asking you to write more in English? You guys (and gals) are great. Incidentally, I voted "excellent" at Hotscript.

This is just GREAT, nothing to say more than THANK YOU.
I am software engineer and I often have to replicate problems from my customers and frankly : behing able to deploy an Apache + MySQL + Php mode in less than 3 minutes, I just have to admit that you saved me from long time configuring this and that.
No, really guys, THANK YOU
