Sorry if this has been repeated, but...
I have the ZEN cart book and it talks about using an older version of XAMPP when installing on my local machine. Is this due to older ZEN cart versions?
I have a new install of 1.3.8.a on my host server, but wonder if I should use a newer XAMPP version to install locally. I hate upgrades and patching, so I would prefer to do it right the first time. (I don't have time to do it again!!!)
