Thank you for the XAMPP package. ':D I am so appreciative of your time and effort into this project! I am not accustomed to Terminal commands, but the directions you gave are beautifully simple.
It seems that I have a successful install. Everything is running. I wonder, though, will I have trouble later? Here is what I did.
I downloaded the XAMPP file. The download defaults to my desktop.
Without moving the file, I typed in the directions for installation
# tar xfvz xampp-macosx-0.6.1.tar.gz -C /
I received a terminal message that the file was not found. Yes I was in terminal as #root
I figured the path to the document and typed:
# tar xfvz desktop/xampp-macosx-0.6.1.tar.gz -C /
The file was found, and the the installation was successful.
My question is this -- Because I installed from the desktop (/users/me/desktop) will I have trouble later with permissions? At the moment, all seems correct. I just don't want to run into trouble later.
