mySql for both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8

Is there a version of mySql that will work with both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8, so that we can mix D7 and D8 sites on the same server?

On the System Requirements page, it says:

Drupal 7:
MySQL 5.0.15/MariaDB 5.1.44/Percona Server 5.1.70 or higher with PDO,

Drupal 8:
MySQL 5.5.3/MariaDB 5.5.20/Percona Server 5.5.8 or higher with PDO and an InnoDB-compatible primary storage engine,

Error when run Drupal application on XAMPP

Hi All,

Drupal version =7.23
Mac OS version = 10.9.5
XAMPP version = 1.8.3-1

When try to run my own module under "htdocs" directory by entering "http://localhost/abc/" (assume "abc" is the module name). The browser returns me the below error.

Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required './modules/system/system.install' (include_path='.:/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/lib/php') in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/abc/install.php on line 25

Session cookie isn't generated(saved?) and users can't login


I have installed a dev version of my Drupal site into "/home/user/public_html/dev/drupal/" -> http://dev.drupal.tld

Live version of this site is installed into "/home/user/public_html/" -> http://drupal.tld

Live version is working fine but dev version (copy of live) isn't and problem is that I can't login to that site (drupal notice: access denied).
The problem seems to be in cookie that appears to be missing and I haven't figured out why and how.

Drupal 8 installation issues on localhost

Hi I installed Drupal 8 (followed instructions except for clean URL, I wanted to do it after the installation through the configuration menu in admin) until I got the message drupal successfully installed. BUT for some reason when I click on any link from the admin or site page I get the following error:

Not Found
The requested URL /Drup8/user/1/edit was not found on this server.

Looked at the installation guide with no success. Just the site name and the Drupal links do work.
Any ideas why is this happening.
Thank You.

Anyone sucessfully installed Drupal 7.39 on IXWebhosting ?
