How To Add MySQL Modules to Your XAMPP

In this tutorial, we walked through the process of adding MySQL and other components to an existing XAMPP installation. We started by downloading the necessary files, including the latest version of XAMPP and the MySQL connector. Next, we created a new folder to store the additional files and opened the XAMPP installer. We then selected the custom installation option and chose the new folder as the destination. After unchecking certain options, we let the installer run and copy the files over. We then copied the MySQL folder from the XAMPP installation to the new folder. Finally, we were able to add MySQL and other components to our existing XAMPP installation, allowing us to run multiple versions of the software on the same computer. This process is useful for developers who need to test their code on different versions of the software without interfering with their current setup.
