failed to extract properly

Postby 01satkins » 24. February 2006 20:38

hi, im not exceptionally good with linux yet, and when i try to extract teh linux apache tar on suse 9.3 pro i get the following error:

Code: Select all
linux:/home/Stewart # tar -xvfz xampp-linux-1.5.1.tar.gz -C /opt
tar: z: CAnnot open: no such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now


the file is definately in that directory so i dont knwo whats wrong.

i used the gui to extract the files, xampp runs but phpmyadmin doesnt. i noticed during the extraction several alerts saying either a folder was found but a file was expected or the other way around

when run phpmyadmin says:
phpMyAdmin - Error

phpMyAdmin was unable to read your configuration file!
This might happen if PHP finds a parse error in it or PHP cannot find the file.
Please call the configuration file directly using the link below and read the PHP error message(s) that you receive. In most cases a quote or a semicolon is missing somewhere.
If you receive a blank page, everything is fine.

config.inc.php

and config.inc.php says:

Warning: Unknown: failed to open stream: Permission denied in Unknown on line 0

Warning: Unknown: Failed opening '/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/opt/lampp/lib/php') in Unknown on line 0

linux:/home/Stewart # tar -xvfz xampp-linux-1.5.1.tar.gz -C /opt
tar: z: CAnnot open: no such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now


Try:

Code: Select all
 tar -xvzf xampp-linux-1.5.1.tar.gz -C /opt


I think the "f" has to be the option immediately preceding the archive filename.
