Problems with the Linux version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.
I'm using the distro PCLinuxOS 2010 (KDE), and installed XAMPP 1.7.3a. I can't seem to get phpMyAdmin running, every time I try I get:
phpMyAdmin - Error
Cannot start session without errors, please check errors given in your PHP and/or webserver log file and configure your PHP installation properly.
Both distro and xampp are fresh installations. Help?

I'm pretty new to Linux so this solution may or may not be technically correct...all I know is that I was able to access phpmyadmin afterwards. So consider yourself warned. Anyway, here's what worked for me: Stopped lampp. Went into /opt/lampp/etc/my.conf file and changed the port option from 3306 to 3307. The port setting is in there twice and I changed both of them. Restarted lampp.
It looks like PCLinuxOS 2010 comes with mysql pre-installed and that was trying to use port 3306 as well. I didn't want to uninstall it because it was going to uninstall a bunch of other stuff with it. This seemed to do the trick.
