Installation problem

Postby mortalgod » 17. February 2007 05:32

i just got a new computer and needed to install xampp on it, on my old machine (iMac G5) i remember installation being a breeze, this time on my new (Power Mac Quad Intel Xeon) i download the file to my desktop then ran the terminal command in the installation instructions and it gives this error:

tar (child): xampp-macosx-0.6a.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Is there somewhere else i should be putting the file then the desktop in order for it to install properly?

thx for any help

s there somewhere else i should be putting the file

While you execute this command, you must be in the same directory as the archive.

(You must see the archive with a "ls")

thx, worked like a charm, i wonder do you know if there are any apple scripts out there that auto run xampp when the computer boots up?
