Problems with the Linux version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.
two questions, please
- why do I have to use the user root to install XAMPP ?
- after install of XAMPP, can I change the owner with chown (for example ...) ?

Because usually folder /opt is not writable for normal users.

chown otheruser /opt/xampp
chown -R otheruser /opt/xampp
Option -R mean recursive chmod, so xampp and all subfolder und files are changed.
