Installation of Xampp in Linux

After downloading simply type in the following commands:

1. Go to a Linux terminal and login as the system administrator root:

su

2. Extract the downloaded archive file to /opt:

tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.6.5a.tar.gz -C /opt

Warning: Please use only this command to install XAMPP. DON'T use any Microsoft Windows tools to extract the archive, it won't work.

Warning 2: already installed XAMPP versions get overwritten by this command.

That's all. XAMPP is now installed below the /opt/lampp directory.
* Step 3: Start
To start XAMPP simply call this command:

/opt/lampp/lampp start

You should now see something like this on your screen:

Starting XAMPP 1.6.5a...
LAMPP: Starting Apache...
LAMPP: Starting MySQL...
LAMPP started.

OK, that was easy but how can you check that everything really works? Just type in the following URL at your favourite web browser:

http://localhost
