I was using Xampp for local development until about a year ago when I found Laragon & I haven't looked back since. This is seriously the most powerful local development tool I have in my entire "developer toolkit".
I started working for a new company about 2 months ago & their entire team was using various setups for local dev and were always encountering problems. Setting up a new project locally was always a nightmare for them due to mysql version conflicts, having to change php versions, etc. When I introduced Laragon to them, they were amazed at how easy it was to install, maintain and how flexible it was to update/switch their dependencies. My manager told me that since the team has started using Laragon for local dev, project setup time has gone down from an average of 6 HOURS, to less than 30 mins. AMAZING.
In the opensource community, people sometimes forget the amount of time, effort and hard work that goes into creating something like this. So the reason why I'm posting this is just to say thank you to @leokhoa for developing & maintaining such an incredible piece of software. Your amazing efforts are very much appreciated!
These are the exact instructions to upgrade MySQL to version 8 on Largon v.4.0.16 on Windows 10 1909 x64. If you have already ran Mysql in Laragon you can skip to step 3.
BACK UP YOUR DATA FILE BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING!
Click Start All. This will create the mysql folder and files at C:\laragon\data\mysql
Go to Quick Add Configuration (Menu->Tools->Quick add->Configuration)
Uncomment the mysql-8.0 (Line 12, delete # sign)
Edit the mysql version to current version. (Change mysql-8.0.13-winx64.zip TO mysql-8.0.20-winx64.zip )
Save & Close file
Go back to Quick Add and select mysql-8.0. Download will start.
After download, go to Menu->Mysql->Version and select mysql-8.0.20-winx64
Rename C:\laragon\data\mysql to C:\laragon\data\mysql-8 (BACK UP THE mysql FOLDER FIRST!!!!!)
Click Start All Button
If you get VCRUNTIME140_1 error, install updated Microsoft Visual C++ from https://aka.ms/vs/16/release/vc_redist.x64.exe
If Windows Firewall opens give permissions for mysql
i am changed the php version in laragon
but when check the php version in cmder get the php 7.4 also
how can i change it and solve this problem
Phew... I have tried everything I can think of to connect from other LAN computers to Laragon.
When I install Laragon, and then WordPress, I can access WP with no issues so long as I am on the computer where Laragon is located. However, all attempts to connect from other computers fails with "cannot connect" messages.
I have removed and reinstalled all a few times to no avail. I have dropped all firewalls and still no change. The odd thing is that I can ping to the IP addy 192.168.1.5 with no issues, but cannot even get the Laragon screen at that IP address.
I am not using Nginx and prefer to just access without it since this all on localhost. And, I have had Laragon in the past working fine, but something is obviously at work blocking things. Any suggestions and ideas solicited and appreciated.
This morning, from remote on LAN to computer with Laragon:
Ping Laragon address 192.168.1.5 Passes
Accessed server computer over LAN by computer name in Windows Explorer Passes - Displayed&Accessed all drives properly.
On a previous version of Laragon, I was able to view both PHP and HTML websites (html websites when I am looking at templates, and converting them to php), but since I updated Laragon, I have not been able to view any of my HTML websites, only my PHP ones. Would anyone be able to help me out?
Current Laragon Version: 188.8.131.52523
Just ran into issues using the new(ish) TLD .dev owned by Google. Just wanted to create a Sticky thread which i hope will help others who may be considering using it in Laragon ... in short ... DON'T. Read my thread [here](https://forum.laragon.org/topic/1932/cannot-run-my-first-project). There's a link in it to n excellent explanation as to why .dev isn't a wise choice on localhost local development environments. In short; a new feature introduced into Google and recently Firefox called HSTS will redirect all requests to https whether you set this protocol or not. 'Not' in my case and if you do set Laragon AFTERWARDS to use https its generally too late and you'll get a lengthy Chrome error page explaining why your stuffed! for eternity and beyond. IN SHORT ... IF YOUR PLANNING TO USE .DEV ENABLE HTTPS FIRST!
Seen several other users in the forum who've fallen into this pit so PLEASE READ THIS FIRST AND SAVE YOURSELF SOME HEADACHES.
All the best [ and doncha jus luv Laragon ... boooom! ]
I'm having problems configuring each project placed in the www folder to run on an assigned port, for example project1 can be opened with port 8020, project2 with port 8030, I don't know where it should be configure so that Laragon allows me to work with several ports, please can you tell me how to do it, since I do not understand how to configure correctly to handle virtual hosts.
