- How do I install XAMPP in windows?
- XAMPP for Windows exists in three different flavors:
Probably the easiest way to install XAMPP.
For purists: XAMPP as ordinary ZIP archive.
For purists with low bandwidth: XAMPP as 7zip archive.
Note: If you extract the files, there can be false-positives virus warnings.
Using the installer:
The XAMPP control panel for start/stop Apache, MySQL, FileZilla & Mercury or install these server as services.
Installing from ZIP
Unzip the zip archives into the folder of your choice. XAMPP is extracting to the subdirectory "C:\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.
