Getting legacy project running
My first trial with Laragon so I set up on an old PC to test a legacy project that uses mysql driver rather than mysqli or PDO.
PC is running Vista.
I installed Laragon 2.2 and added php 5.6 but when I start up I get :
Service MySQL can not start. Reason:
2018-07-04 17:57:38 3100 [Note] C:\laragon\bin\mysql\mariadb-10.2.3-win32\bin\mysqld (mysqld 10.2.3-MariaDB-log) starting as process 1856 ...
2018-07-04 17:57:38 3100 [ERROR] Incompatible header in messagefile 'C:\xampp\mysql\share\english\errmsg.sys'. Probably from another version of MariaDB
2018-07-04 17:57:38 3100 [ERROR] Aborting
But xampp is not started and was not started at all on this run of the PC. (I don't have xampp set to auto start.) No rogue services are shown in Task manager. I don't have a database installed yet but that shouldn't make it fail.
Apache is running OK in Laragon.
I also now tried installing myslq v5.7 but get:
mysqld.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point TryAcquireSRWLockExclusive could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll.
Maybe I should just try on my Win7 PC
Moving from Xampp to laragon - any likely issues with old projects?
I have a pile of legacy procedural code projects in my Xampp install - I do not use Vhosts, I just go to each project directory and use its index.php as the root, there's some pattern based htaccess routing but it's the same on every project. Very old school.
I want to make any move nice and pain free!
I understand I can't have both Xampp and Laragon running at the same time (I dunno.. maybe I can mess around with ports but that's not
Could they both use the same mySql install?
I would like to make sure Laragon does not overwrite my existing mySql database install. I can back it up, but do I need to?
I'm hoping I can just move my old style projects to the Laragon www folder and all should work without needing to do any "add project" stuff. Is that going to work?
