XF 2.3 Need help with installing addons in Xampp


Well-known member
I've had a test install running through xampp for some time and I've been wanting to test out addons with the latest beta version of XF. I can't for the life of me figure out where to copy the contents of the upload folder from addons in xampp or better yet where the config.php file is so I can enable the archive installation option. It's been a few years since I last installed an addon in Xampp. I thought it was the htdocs folder but I guess not. Thanks.
It will typically be in c:\xampp and whatever the folder name is for your localhost.

If the directory is xf which would make the URL https://localhost/xf then it would be C:\xampp\htdocs\xf\src for the config.php file.
I finally figured out where it was. It's was actually in C:\xampp\htdocs\src and thats also where the XF folder is. I can now install addons via zip. However, I'm moving to a brand new pc as soon as I get everything setup and my data transferred over. Got xampp installed and everything setup and when I went to install XF is says something about maria db is the wrong version. I'll post the error when I get back over to the other pc. You don't forsee an issue with the latest beta XF and the lastest version of xampp do you?
