I would lượt thích to use the newer PHP but I bởi vì not want lớn update everything else. So how would I install the newest version of PHP in windows?

Also on the Xampp page there is another extension tải về for Tomcat 6.0.20 I am not sure what Tomcat does can someone explain?

PHP on Windows is essentially a couple of dll files, an ini file và an extension directory. You can have unlimited versions of PHP on your machine, what matters is which version your webserver (in your case with XAMPP, Apache) uses.

Firstly tải về the latest version of PHP from, install it in, for instance, C:Program FilesPHP.

In your Apache conf tệp tin (Something lượt thích C:Program FilesXAMPPApacheConfhttpd.conf) edit the following section so it suits your new PHP installation:

# LoadModule php5_module "C:Program FilesPHPphp5apache2.dll"AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .php# configure the path to php.iniPHPIniDir "C:Program FilesPHPphp.ini"See the PHP installation docs for more.

Calling phpinfo() from a kiểm tra script will also help you pinpoint any ini files that are in weird places (Windows directory, Apache Directory etc...)

Tomcat is an Apache extension for running Java, safe khổng lồ assume you don"t need it!
