Update WAMPSERVER 2.4

Hi there,

I would like to update a WAMPSERVER 2.4 installation, but all the available updates start from version 2.5.

In the "WAMPServer 3 All you need to know" there is a mention to version 2.4 in the Visual C++ Packages section, but it is not clear to me if the cumulative update will work.

Alternatively, is there an update from 2.4 to 2.5 I could apply first?

Many thanks

I looked at "Install a new release of Wampserver", but only the title reports "Wampserver 2.x", which would include 2.4, while the body only refers to version 2.5.
For this reason I am not sure and I am asking for advice.
Many thanks

Hi,

Just because it says 2.5 doesn't mean it only applies to version 2.5.
By reading the procedure carefully, you can understand that it can even apply to a server other than Wampserver.
You say you have found an update 2.4 to 2.5, but I don't know the reliability of it at all.

The most reliable and durable way for both your local sites and databases is to apply the procedure explained in: Install a new release of Wampserver

I did not find any update from 2.4 to 2.5: I was asking if there was one
Thank you for your advice, I will try to apply the cumulative update.

Hello there,

the procedure described in "Installing a new release of WAMPServer" suggested in "WAMPServer 3 All you need to know" does not work for WAMPServer 2.4.

The installation gives the following error "The installation folder chosen is not that of WAMPServer version 2.5".

Any suggestion?

Hi,

I wrote about Install a new release of Wampserver not about WAMPServer 3 All you need to know.

There is no upgrade from 2.4 to 3.x and there will never be one.

You must follow the procedure indicated:
- Export your databases as SQL files
- Stop services and uninstall them
- Exit Wampserver 2.4
- Rename the folder
- etc.
