Lampp will not start..about to pull my hair out!

I downloaded and installed from here: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html#377


I followed all instructions, but when I try to start it, I get:

Code: Select all
jason@Linux:~$ cd ./opt/lampp/
jason@Linux:~/opt/lampp$ ./lamp start
bash: ./lamp: No such file or directory
jason@Linux:~/opt/lampp$ ./lammp start
bash: ./lammp: No such file or directory
jason@Linux:~/opt/lampp$ ls
backup  bin  cgi-bin  error  etc  htdocs  icons  lampp  lib  libexec  licenses  logs  modules  phpmyadmin  phpsqliteadmin  RELEASENOTES  sbin  share  tmp  var
jason@Linux:~/opt/lampp$ /lampp start
bash: /lampp: No such file or directory
jason@Linux:~/opt/lampp$ lampp start
bash: lampp: command not found
jason@Linux:~/opt/lampp$ ./lampp start

Did you *really* follow the installation instruction step by step (and installed lampp as "root" user)?

Not only that, but after you INSTALL it AS ROOT, you need to type:

Code: Select all
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start


1.) you have to install it as root... 2.) you have to run it as root.

Please follow instructions carefully. Not everybody is as nice as me.
