Might seem like a stupid question to you guys, but one I desperately need answered!
I'm trying to install and run Xampp on my computer. I am running Ubuntu 9.10.
When I try to install as indicated on the installation guide I am hindered by the "/opt" command that I am supposed to enter in the terminal.
The guide states:
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-1.7.3a.tar.gz -C /opt
When I do enter the above command, I get this answer:
tar: xvfz xampp-linux-1.7.3a.tar.gz: Cannot Open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
I tried changing the "/opt" bit to a folder that I had, and it worked. But, when I tried running the program it was trying to locate files in "/opt"! Which apparently does not exist!
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Perhaps one day I can contribute, too!
