new to xampp. Installed it on a ubuntu linux box mainly to learn programming dynamic webpages with php.
Now, it seems that
-1- xampp/lampp can only run when installed inside /opt/lampp
-2- php pages must be saved inside /[lampp path]/htdocs
So that (correct me if I'm wrong) file edition needs to be done using admin/root rights only to be able to save them into a non-user directory. This seems odd to me. On a ubuntu box, it require launching an editor using the su password
Do you know any workaround?
-1- Is there a way to make xampp work from another dir such as /home/me/tools/lampp?
-2- Is there a way to tell xampp to find pages in another dir such as /home/me/prog/php?
