Just delete the ones you dont want from the C:/wamp/bin/php/ folder.

Right click WAMP taksbar icon and select refresh, the deleted versions will not be shown in PHP > PHP Version list

Thanks a lot, c2dan! Even if i'm using wamp for quite some time, i didn't see that "refresh" option in the right-click menu.

What version of WAMP are you using? I'm assuming you're using some version of WAMP Server 2 and not WAMP5

You can always close wamp and restart wamp which does the same thing. The refresh menu appears when you right click (not left click) the wamp tray icon.

This thread is quite old now, but if anyone is following the instructions given, you need to be aware that you can delete all versions of PHP except 5.6.16 which Wampserver is using.

Adding to a thread that finished in 2009, NOT VERY HELPFUL, as well as incorrect.
As a rule of thumb, you can remove any version of PHP that you added smiling smiley


If you are still using WAMPServer 2.anything. Stop and upgrade to WAMPServer 3

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Windows 10 Pro 64bit) (Wampserver 3.2.4 32bit & 64bit)
<Apache versions MULTIPE> <PHP versions MULTIPLE> <MySQL Versions MULTIPLE>

Read The Manuals Apache -- MySQL -- PHP -- phpMyAdmin
