Install 64bits version of Apache and PHP

  • | 2855 points

    Step 1: Download
    Download the latest stable versions of Apache and PHP.

    Step2: New Apache
    Unzip the Apache download into [laragon installation dir]\bin\apache
    Here it looks like: c:\Development\laragon\bin\apache\apache-2.4.20_64vc14
    Remember to copy the httpd-vhosts.conf (virtual host file) from the working Apache.
    I also changed the content of the httpd.conf (so it points to the correct directory). Perhaps Laragon does this automatically, IDK.

    Step 3: New PHP
    Unzip the PHP download into [laragon installation dir]\bin\php
    Here it looks like: c:\Development\laragon\bin\php\php-7.0.6-64-ts
    Change the php.ini to have the same extensions as the working php version.
    (you can use a visual compare tool, like Winmerge, or Meld)
    If you use xdebug, beware that a newer version of php also uses a different version of the xdebug setup.

    Step 4: Try it
    Now you can start Laragon, select the new 2 things and that should work.
    Perhaps I forgot a few steps, but if you try and not succeed, please let me know, so we can figure this out.
