Hi Glitzi, Thanks for looking.
I installed it following instructions here,
I copied XAMPP Linux 1.6.8a
* Step 2: Installation
After downloading simply type in the following commands:
1. Go to a Linux shell and login as the system administrator root:
2. Extract the downloaded archive file to /opt:
tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.6.8a.tar.gz -C /opt
I started it OK, the orange and yellow http://localhost/xampp/index.php
comes up and I can access all the menu items.
When I try to open up say the /opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp/phpinfo.php directly in my browser I get the same error message. This is the same file script that I can read easily through the http://localhost/xampp/index.php
Surely I don't have to set up something like this? How do I see the results of a simple script like <?phpinfo();?> in a file called "info.php" ?
