How to install XAMPP in /usr/local instead of /opt?

Postby mengland » 04. April 2005 15:54

Hello,

Is there a tested and "blessed" means for me to install XAMPP in /usr/local instead of /opt? Can this happen "out of the box" with no modifications?

I really don't know, but I wish there was... I don't like /opt

Files such as httpd.conf have a lot of explicit uses of /opt, so those would have to be changed.

Maybe you could add a symbolic link from /opt/lampp to /usr/local/lampp. I haven't tried that, but it might work.

Hi,

this is the only way of doing it.
lampp has its dependencies as libs etc all linked to /opt/lampp
So the only way of relocating lampp is with symlinks.

Would adding those symlinks slow anything down? I'm only running a 600mhz processor...
