change owner of xampp

Postby beheretxea » 16. May 2008 09:30

Hi,

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 ...) ?

Thanks,

Philippe

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

chown otheruser /opt/xampp

or

chown -R otheruser /opt/xampp


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