XAMPP is a popular AMP ( Apache Mysql Php ) that is available for Windows, OS X and also Linux.
If you’re looking to update your XAMPP, meaning you you want to have a newer version of phpmyadmin, php ..etc then you’ve found the right place.
Updating the software without losing your content ( files or databases ) is pretty simple. I know I searched a lot for this just to find out that this can be done in just a few minutes.
After installing the newer XAMPP, you only need to copy and paste the htdocs and the mysql folder from the old installation to the new one.
You’re done, simple as that 🙂
Notice: If you had any other Apache configurations then you need to copy those too from the Apache folder
