XAMPP Individual Components Already Exists in OS

Postby bc247 » 03. February 2016 15:24

My Linux distro is Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon 32-bit. I have each of the individual components(Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl) of XAMPP installed separately. Now I really need to install XAMPP.

XAMPP : xampp-linux-5.6.15-1-installer.run

Apache : running apache2 -v gave...
Server version: Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu)
Server built: Jul 24 2015 17:25:15

MySQL : running mysql -V gave...
mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.5.47, for debian-linux-gnu (i686) using readline 6.3

PHP : PHP Version 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.14

Perl : running perl -v gave...
This is perl 5, version 18, subversion 2 (v5.18.2) built for i686-linux-gnu-thread-multi-64int

1. I want to uninstall all the individual components and make a clean install of XAMPP. Can I do that ?.
2. Is uninstalling apache before installing XAMPP would disrupt my normal browser operations in any way ?.

NOTE : I need to specifically install XAMPP and thanks in advance.

Why not?

I dont think so, but anyway, this is NOT a Xampp question, it is a Linux Mint question. If in doubt, you should ask in a Linux Mint forum.

Why do you want to deinstall your already running environment (which surely is maintained very well by Linux Mint) and install Xampp instead?

I am trying to learn PHP. So chose to install XAMPP as I think it would be more convenient than individual packages.

Why that? PHP is PHP in any case.

The Institute where I have enrolled have asked us to setup XAMPP. As I have stated in the NOTE section.

Do I have to uninstall the individual components or I can install XAMPP over these preexisting separate components ?.

Now, If I install XAMPP when the individual components already preexists...

Q. Would not be there two copies of each of the components ?.
Q. Would the presence of two copies going to effect the functionality of XAMPP in any way i.e when I try to run XAMPP would it going to clash with the individual preexisting components ?.

Yes, you have to de-install the components.
