1st: wrong forum. This is a german forum. Next time post in the english part of this board.
2nd: use the board search. There is a post with exact the same problem just a few days ago => viewtopic.php?f=17&t=41995

But you can read and you can scroll a page down.
We can expect that someone who starts a post here first reads the board rules and tries to find the right forum for his post.

That are the basics in every support board.

Hi,

just to bring it to the point.
Instead of wasting 3 posts to explain where this thread should have started, it's one line to explain what he did wrong while extracting:

The correct command to extract is:
Code: Select all
tar xzf xampp-linux-1.7.3a.tar.gz -C /opt/

All you did wrong was, you forgot to respect the spaces between *.tar.gz -C /opt/

Regards,
Kristian
