It's been ages since I installed Xampp on Ubuntu. I don't even remember what version of Ubuntu it was back then, but I've been upgrading it (ubuntu) and now it's 15.10.
Starting from recently, every single time I boot my Ubuntu system, I get a system error message telling me that httpd has crashed.
- WTF, how comes it has started crashing now? I haven't upgraded it or anything
- WTFF, it is not even supposed to be running at startup in the first place, given that I haven't launched it.
When I manually start lampp with
- Code: Select all
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
Does anybody know the root cause and a workaround for this annoying bug? And what pisses me off the most, why does httpd even attempt to run at startup??
P.S. I would be happy to upgrade xampp, if only it was an ubuntu package and/or if there was an easy way to upgrade without having to backup, wipe out, and restore every damn thing (virtual hosts, databases,...)
