After computer restart stuck on splash screen

Postby jslozier » 06. December 2011 22:09

XAMPP 1.77
LinuxMint 12

When I install XAMPP and use it immediately it works correctly. But after I turn off my computer the next time I start XAMPP I get stuck on the splash screen. Clicking on any of the languages does nothing.

If I completely remove and reinstall I can use XAMPP until I reboot and the problem reappears. The previous topic about the splash screen does not completely address the problem.

Any suggestions?

Well -

Suggestion is "tell us what 'you' did" after installing XAMPP

Good Luck

I start xampp using sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
Then went to http://localhost and logged in, closed browser
Then changed passwords
Relogged in successfully, did some work.
Stopped xampp using sudo /opt/lampp/lampp stop
Shutdown computer
Reboot - computer is not used as server but for testing and development
started xampp using sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
went to http://localhost logged in and screen froze

OK -

First - does lampp start correctly after a reboot?

Second - can you get into phpmyadmin?

Third - what does 'did some work entail'???

check the ownership and permissions of the folders and the files they contain in two places -

/opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp

and

/opt/lampp/var/mysql

the owners should be nobody:root or in /opt/lampp/var/mysql they could be nobody:root or nobody:nobody depending on how the database files were created.

BTW - you don't have to go to the 'xampp page' - its a redirect - it's only necessary if you want to use the examples there or the phpinfo() script that are on that page.

Personally I would have 'not changed anything', and then rebooted - (but I am not you) Its your machine.

Good Luck
