Install wont work in Ubuntu

Postby maddog39 » 15. March 2006 00:18

Hello all,

I cant figure out why the xampp wont install on Ubuntu Linux. Here is what I get when using the commands privded in the instructions.
Code: Select all
alec@ubuntu:~$ sudo tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.5.1.tar.gz -C /opt
tar: xampp-linux-1.5.1.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Can someone please help me?

Thanks!

first you can go in directory /opt

try this :

1) cd /opt
2)tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.5.1.tar.gz -C /opt

Okay I am in /opt now, and I am redownloading the tar.gz file. But do I have to save the tar.gz file anywhere special.

maddog,

Are you sure you got that file in the same directory you're running the command?
Also, double check the filename is the same you're uncompressing. You typed the whole command using <tab> right?

EDIT: By the way, I've always got Xampp running in my Ubuntu, never had a problem.
