Here's my problem:
When i start XAMPP and go to http://localserver and then click "Status" it tells me that everything works except for MySQL, PHP extension »eAccelerator« and PHP extension »OCI8/Oracle«.
I am only concerned about MySQL at this point, there is easily accessible information for the PHP applications. When I start XAMPP it gives me this readout:
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.6.2...
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
XAMPP: Another MySQL daemon is already running.
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for Linux started.
I messed around trying to install Apache, PHP5 and MySQL with "apt-get" but was unsuccessful and installed XAMPP instead. Before installing XAMPP I removed everything I installed. It seems that XAMPP isn't using the MySQL server it installed.
