I've got a problem.
I installed XAMPP, but when I open http://localhost/ the browser says:

Welcome in XAMPP for Linux.
Warning: include(.version) [function.include]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp/start.php on line 12

Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening '.version' for inclusion (include_path='.:/opt/lampp/lib/php') in /opt/lam

What I have to do? Is there something wrong during installation?

(I'm sorry for bad english)

its easy... just change the read permission using:

sudo chmod a+r *

This command must be typed when you are already in the xampp folder that contains both the index.php and lang.tmp

Good luck!
