XAMPP 5.6.3.0 & Ubuntu 14.04 installation issues

Postby wintermute » 08. January 2015 05:20

Hi there, thanks for reading this post!

I'm unsuccessfully attempting to install XAMPP 5.6.3.0, following instructions from
Apachefriends Linux FAQ saying I need to enter the following commands in Terminal:
"chmod 755 xampp-linux-x64-5.6.3-0-installer.run" & "sudo ./xampp-linux-x64-5.6.3-0-installer.run"

.. However,
the "chmod 755" command replies: "cannot access 'xampp-linux-x64-5.6.3-0-installer.run': No such file or dir",
and the "sudo" command replies: "command not found".

I've double-, triple- and quadruple checked for typos in the filename..
Please help me, why does it say that? :shock:

The .run file currently resides in my Downloads folder, and I've set execute permission for it.

You have to change directory into the Downloads folder before issueing the commands ("cd Downloads"). If you already set execute permission to the installation file, you may skip the chmod command.
