Can't you make this dir (I mean sudo mkdir /opt) ?

What to do...

Best is to create the directory.
Otherwise just configure the http.conf under ./lamp/etc/

Hope this helps

XAMPP in /opt

Postby new2apache » 06. June 2007 08:00

I'm using Ubuntu 7.04, Apache is running and so is MySQL.
I installed XAMPP in /opt, before installing /opt had no other folder, Installating XAMPP showed no errors, after running a browser in http://localhost, there's no XAMPP page.
What is the problem?

Did you start xampp after installing it?

I followed the instructions on the link:
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html

Then run the command on step 4): /opt/lampp/lampp start

Messages were all good, like in the instructions web page.
It seems that some where the path for XAMPP in /opt/lampp is missing.

- Thanks for your prompt response

(this is a follow up from previous answer)
XAMPP is working fine now.
I got XAMPP running. I stopped all of them - Apache, MySql - and let XAMPP start them.

Thanks again for your support.
