LAMPP does not work quite like standard LAMP stacks.

please try starting LAMPP with this command (as root)

/opt/lampp/lampp start

See if LAMPP starts ok, please...

Was LAMPP stopped when you issued that command??? or were you trying to 'start Apache'????

LAMPP is run by a bash script (/opt/lampp/lampp), with a set of delimited options (arguments) that are invoked by that script. What I am saying is you may not be able to use some Apache CLI options.

The arguments are outlined in the LAMPP FAQ's -

(down toward the bottom)

You can also open the bash script (/opt/lampp/lampp) with an editor - look around line 128 for the arguments available (cases)

Good Luck
