wamp
|   wampmanager.tpl
|   images_off.bmp
|   images_on.bmp
|
+---lang
|   english.lang
|   french.lang
|   romanian.lang
|
|   \---modules
|       settings_english.php
|       settings_french.php
|       settings_romanian.php
|
+---scripts
|   ALL FILES
|
+---www
|   index.php
|   add_vhost.php
|   testmysql.php
|
|   \---wampthemes
|       ALL FILES
|

- 2 - Modify wamp\wampmanager.conf file
Check that the modifications were not already made

After : defaultLanguage = english
add :
[options]
urlAddLocalhost = "off"
ChangeServicesNames = "off"
MenuItemOnline = "off"
HomepageAtStartup = "off"
ProjectSubMenu = "off"
VirtualHostSubMenu = "on"

After : apacheServiceRemoveParams = "-n wampapache -k uninstall"
or apacheServiceRemoveParams = "-n wampapache64 -k uninstall"
(For Wampserver 64 bit)
add :
[apacheoptions]
apachePortUsed = "80"
apacheUseOtherPort = "off"

After : mysqlServiceRemoveParams = "--remove wampmysqld"
or mysqlServiceRemoveParams = "--remove wampmysqld64"
(For Wampserver 64 bit)
add:
[mysqloptions]
mysqlPortUsed = "3306"
mysqlUseOtherPort = "off"

Start Wampserver

I repeat: Despite all the tests done, I'm not immune to error, therefore, make a backup of your files BEFORE copying the new files.

Bon jour Otomatic,

I did a few tests and the results were all good!

I upgraded 2.5.15 to 2.5.16, worked like a dream.

I upgraded a vanilla 2.5 installation to 2.5.16, this also worked like a dream.


Some nice additions again.

Merci


For the referece of others trying this, this is the process I used :-


1. left click - wampmanager -> Stop all Services

2. Copy \wamp to \wamp_safe

3. Copy the unzipped folders over the top of \wamp

4. right click - wampmanager -> Refresh

5. left click - wampmanager -> Start all Services

Hi,

> For the referece of others trying this, this is the process I used
Do not forget the installation step N°2: modify the wamp/wampmanager.conf file.
You do not need to because you were already in the 2.5.15 release.
Starting with version 2.5, and if all goes well, the wampserver.conf file is automatically modified. But in this case it is necessary to quit and relaunch WampServer again.
There were two cases (One on the French and one on the English forums) where changes have not been made automatically and I did not understand why.
With a colleague (Jojaba) we are currently working on a VirtualHost creation script and a responsive design of the home page in html5

Hi, just a newbie question about the development process - will this become 2.6 eventually? Or are these custom additions that are not "official"? We have been using 2.5 for quite a while and I'm just generally wondering how often is WampServer updated and if there's a new release in the pipeline anytime soon, and whether this will be it.

Thanks,
Borek

Hi,

> Hi, just a newbie question about the development process - will this become 2.6 eventually?
If all goes as I hope, it should become Wampserver 2.6.
I'm trying to incorporate a last "trick": creating VirtualHost by a PHP script.
When everything is developed, I will ask the "official staff" to release a new version and if possible with several versions of PHP: 5.4.x, 5.5.x and 5.6.x.
