I would like to run two XAMPP apache servers and mysql on one Windows computer. My first idea was to run one under directory XAMPP, the other under XAMPP_B.

Why you ask? I have two applications that have to be in the "root" directory of localhost.

Both servers do not have to be active at same time, so I don't think I will have any conflicts

I will have to modify my.cnf in mySQL httpd.conf, apache_start and maybe other config files as well.

Or maybe someone can suggest a better way...
