I've been use XAMPP in Linux and it was great , now I'm trying to install it in Solaris 10 but I found lots of issues. I hope you help me in order to get rid of these issues. The story is:
I had Solaris 10 with MySQL Community Server 5.1.59 and Apache Tomcat 7.0 installed via pkgadd command, MySQL worked perfectly and tomcat work only if I add HTTP port # to IP address 127.0.0.1:8080 and MySQL configured with password for the root user. after that I've add php package and its dependencies from sunfreeware.com unfortunately php didn't work at all (calling php scripts in tomcat directory via browser didn't parsed). then I decided to use XAMPP, everything goes very will except MySQL that is accessed via phpMyAdmin without password (that's good) but it didn't work on terminal ( my favorite way to deal with MySQL
) due to this error:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)
and I have to mention that new Apache works alongside the old Tomcat (When enter IP address without 8080).I google it to find out what's the problem, I've been try all of available solutions that I found but no one work for me
. I talk to myself that's the moment to remove every thing except tomcat (using pkgrm and rm -rf /opt/xampp) and reinstall only XAMPP again. But it was very bad idea coz phpMyAdmin (it prompts me to enter user and password although I keep everything to default (no password), when enter anything into user and password fields, it shows error that prompts me to check Apache and php logs ) stop working and mysql (and mysqladmin) didn't work totally from terminal (command not found), then I installed MySQL Community Server 5.1.59 the terminal worked good but phpMyAdmin still showing the same problem and php failed in connecting to MySQL database then I go to php.ini and edit mysql socket attribute from "/opt/xampp/...etc" to "/tmp/mysql.sock" and still didn't work. things that I have to mention:
1. All stop commends didn't work at all (/opt/xampp/xampp stop, /opt/xampp/xampp stopapache, ...etc).
2. After deleting XAMPP(rm -rf /opt/xampp) Apache Server still work!!!!!
please till me an easy way to delete every thing (except Apache Tomact) and start XAMPP probably
