Installing XAMPP in Ubuntu

Postby BobbyS » 08. October 2008 02:59

Hello,

I am trying to install XAMPP in Ubuntu but am having problems. Here is what I'm getting:

root@ubuntu:~# tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.6.8a.tar.gz -C /opt
tar: xampp-linux-1.6.8a.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

Could someone please help?

Thank You
BobbyS

tar: xampp-linux-1.6.8a.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory

The file "xampp-linux-1.6.8a.tar.gz" is not in the current working directory (~ = home dir).

Thank you Wiedmann,

That put me on the right track and I got it installed. Is there a way to get a tray icon as a shortcut for the PhpMyAdmin interface?

Thank You again,
BobbyS

If you're using KDE, create a desktop shortcut pointing to "http://localhost/phpmyadmin/". Then drag it into the taskbar.

Although if you're using Ubuntu, you're probably using Gnome, and I don't know how it would be done in Gnome.
