Thanks for reporting, I thought I had fixed this before.
Now htdocs are copied to /opt/lampp/htdocs_backup before upgrade. Not sure if I should restore it to /opt/lampp/htdocs automatically.

I encountered problem, when I updated XAMPP package. During update, pacman overwrite config and data files in /opt/lampp directory, such as httpd.conf (Apache config) or var/mysql (databases data).

Can you solve this problem in package scripts during update? (Sorry for my English mistakes.)

That's because xampp installer tries to create "mysql" user but it fails when it does it on PKGBUILD.
It will work fine if you create the "mysql" user before running it, I don't know how to fix it as it needs to be created before installing.
I will update as soon I find a solution.

Temporary workaround is run 'sudo useradd -r mysql' before install.
