You are strongly encouraged to apply this update. This is a cumulative update. There is no need to apply the old updates 3.0.1 to 3.0.7 before applying 3.0.8. This update is required before install last Apache, PHP, MySQL or MariaDB addons.
Wampserver 2.5 users can apply the update to Wampserver 3.0.3 directly. There will be no change to the Apache, PHP, MySQL settings and versions used; your local sites and databases will not be affected. You will have Wampserver 3.0.3 and all the addons available. In addition this will install Apache 2.4.18, PHP 5.6.18 and 7.0.3, MySQL 5.6.29 and PhpMyAdmin 126.96.36.199. But will not activate them! - Exit Wampserver 2.5 - Install or repair the aforementioned VC packages (VC9, VC10, VC11, VC13 and VC14). - Despite all the testing, errors may exist, therefore make a backup or the entire \wamp\ folder somewhere safe - Run the install of, Wampserver 2.5 -> 3.0.3 making sure you launch it as an administrator - Launch Wampserver
Database management in a single PHP file. Adminer (formerly phpMinAdmin) is a light full-featured database management tool written in PHP. Unlike SqlBuddy, which has not changed for a long time, Adminer works perfectly with PHP 7 and MySQL 5.7
Important Reminder: The transfer of databases between different versions of MySQL or MariaDB should be performed by EXPORT / IMPORT of SQL files using phpMyAdmin or a similiar tools of your choice. Do not copy the data folder between different versions of MYSQL. Databases from different versions of MYSQL are VERY unlikely to be compatible! You will also destroy the version of MYSQL that you copied the data folder to.
Important: Only install Apache 2.2.x if you absolutely need to i.e. you need to run an old version of PHP that will not run with Apache 2.4.x. Apache 2.2.x versions can only be installed on a 3.0.8 version of Wampserver and require PHP 5.4.45.
Important: Before installing Apache 2.4.25, the Wampserver 3.0.7 update is necessary. It is also essential to have previously installed the Visual C ++ Redistributable Packages VC2015 Update 3. See the bottom of this page for download links
Repair tool for wampmanager.ini file if it is corrupted or missing. You can download at any time, but install this tool only if you need it, because it takes into account the current configuration of Wampserver. Also works with Wampserver 2.5. A wampmamanger.ini corrupted file is reflected mostly by errors like "[EparseError]" when launching Wampserver.
