Please carefully test this version and report any issues found in the bug reporting system.

Please DO NOT use this version in production, it is an early test version.

For more information on the new features and other changes, you can read the NEWS file, or the UPGRADING file for a complete list of upgrading notes. These files can also be found in the release archive.

I couldn't install on WampServer, so I use Laragon

After installation of PHP8 on Laragon:

  1. Open the file: C:\laragon\etc\apache2\mod_php.conf
  2. Change php8_module to php_module

I use WampServer for PHP 7, so I can switch to PHP7 for debugging, since the xdebug doesn't support yet PHP8

Thank you Michael,
I've installed Laragon,
but i dont find PHP8 for windows (https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/ ... -windows-in-any-capacity/)

Can you explain more for "After installation of PHP8 on Laragon:"

https://windows.php.net/download/ : no php8 available.

You can download the Windows PHP 8 binaries from: https://windows.php.net/qa/

Unzip it to your Laragon folder, e.g. C:\laragon\bin\php\

so you have: C:\laragon\bin\php\php-8.0.0beta2-Win32-vs16-x64\

Then start Laragon.

It should find PHP8, and you should see it in your Laragon PHP selection. 

After you select PHP8, you will get an error, so stop Laragon and make these changes:

  1. Open the file: C:\laragon\etc\apache2\mod_php.conf
  2. Change php8_module to php_module

Once you do it, restart Laragon again, and PHP8 should work

Thank you.
I've downloaded php8 (merci for the link) and I've installed it.
Then i used nginx cause apache is already used by my "neard" wamp.

All is ok !

I'm glad to hear that it works!

But Laragon comes with its own Apache, and you can always download the latest Apache from Apache Lounge

I have Apache on both Laragon and WampServer, and it works without any problem.

The same with MySQL, but here I point Laragon's MySQL to the data folder on WampServer, so I can switch from Laragon with PHP8 to WampServer with PHP7, while testing the same Website with the same data.
