Guys kindly help me. This is what I did to install XAMPP as per instruction in its website https://www.apachefriends.org/faq_linux.html2 : but I get this error:

You are trying to install a 64bit installer into an 32bit OS.

I thought so too but I wasn't sure. Thanks for confirming it. Just wondering why the developer didn't make one for Linux 32-bit.

Are you forced to run an (outdated) 32bit Linux? If not, why did you choose 32bit? SImply install a 64bit Linux and you are done.
