xampp lampp start fails when using busybox ash shell

Postby bigpcman » 11. January 2009 16:06

Does anyone know why the xampp lampp start command fails when using busybox ash shell instead of bash shell. I get error on line 20 unexpected '(' message. I have changed the "#!/bin/bash" to "#!/bin/sh" to point to the busybox shell. I'm using the new tinycore linux distribution which is awesome. When I install bash and change back to "#!/bin/bash" in the lampp script file it works fine.

I'm using xampp 1.6.8a.

Because busybox is a different shell.

>I have changed the "#!/bin/bash"

You should not do that.

I suppose I could just accept the fact that the ash shell and bash shell are different and leave it at that. I can easily install the bash shell. But I am very curious as to what the ash shell is specifically tripping up on. After all the lampp startup script is not that complicated. I'm just not expert enough to spot the problem. I like to know these things, it helps identify problems in other scripts. Here's the script:
#!/bin/bash

Re: xampp lampp start fails when using busybox ash shell

Postby glitzi85 » 12. January 2009 03:03

In ASH, functions are not introduced with the function keyword, like in BASH. Example:

Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
function myFunction () {
  # Code
}

#!/bin/ash
myFunction () {
  # Code
}
