acdtrux message when I try to unzip and install Xampp

Postby nmgarnett » 10. October 2009 11:06

Hi
I'm a new linux user trying to install Xampp...
I've downloaded the tar.gz and followed instructions to type:
tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.7.2.tar.gz -C /opt in terminal
I get a message about too many acdtrux options?
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am very new to Linux and really want to get to grips with the OS.
Thanks
Nick Garnett

That means you have a typo in your command. Probably you left out a space somewhere or similar.

Copy & paste the full command from here and try again:

Code: Select all
tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.7.2.tar.gz -C /opt


Dont forget: you *MUST* enter this command as user "root", so you either must do a "su" command before or directly run the above command via "sudo":

Code: Select all
sudo tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.7.2.tar.gz -C /opt


If you do so, you must enter your password after submitting the command.

Thanks for this - I was using a small 'c'
