XAMPP dont works Ubuntu, HELP

Postby Lancro » 17. October 2010 23:35

Ok, Im new in linux, when I type localhost, the following message appears...

It works!
This is the default web page for this server.
The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

Its the var/www/index.html file, I tried to start XAMPP, and the following appears...

XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
XAMPP: Error 1! Couldn't start Apache!
XAMPP: Starting diagnose...
XAMPP: Sorry, I've no idea what's going wrong.
XAMPP: Please contact our forum http://community.apachefriends.org/f/
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Couldn't start MySQL!
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for Linux started.

I searched into forums, to uninstall apache2 that came with ubuntu with update-rc.d -f apache2 remove, and it removed something xD, the fact is than in localhost is the /var/www/index.html file, XAMPP is not working, and I need to fix all this mess, someone can help me?

Try this:

In Synaptic, use the quick search with "apache", and then uninstall everything that appears related to apache.

That works for me. :-)

I'm not quit sure about your problem but i had the same on Mandriva. What i do was to shutdown apache service. Use the computer configuration to run service application then stop the service and uncheck the box 'at boot time', Otherwise is to shutdown the service by yourself with a command 'service httpd stop'. (ubunto command is 'sudo service httpd stop')

I hope work for you as it work for me.
