  1. for those who have error starting the apache:
    –>> just copy the whole apache file folder from the previous extracted .zip file, rename the old apache folder to "apache(old version)" from the xampp and then paste it

  2. Your made tutorial is absolutely the worst thing possible.
    Now I can not start Apache anymore, and you did not show us exactly where to copy Apache file and where to paste.
    And also with the download you have pretty confused me, so I've downloaded several free file.
    You also have no link download packed in description.
    Sorry. Your tutorial is not that good.
    That's why Dislike!

  3. Perfect, saved hours. If you get error after restarting apache service update php dll path in apache/config/extra/httpd-xampp.conf
    LoadFile "C:/xampp/php/php7ts.dll"
    LoadFile "C:/xampp/php/libpq.dll"
    LoadModule php7_module "C:/xampp/php/php7apache2_4.dll"

  4. I get a httpd.exe error "This program can't start because libssh2.dll is missing …." it still starts and runs fine though, just annoying this error every time I start it. That dll is in php folder and can't find which file is pointing to it
