Here is my basic info.
I am using Ubuntu 10.10
Broswer is firefox 16.0.1
I installed XAMPP a few days ago seemingly trouble free. I could open and work with files. The troulbes started when I tried to connect to MySql using myphpadmin.
The initial symptom was
(./config.inc.php) is not readable.
Below were the file permissions
-rw-----w- 1 664 daemon 1459 2012-10-20 23:27 config.inc.php
Any attempt at setting permissions with chmod were ineffective.
I then installed myphpadmin according to this link
This brought up the MySql login but it would not let me in.
According to XAMPP readme I tried lampp for password and nobody for username without success.
My next step was to remove myphpadmin >> then removed XAMPP and reinstalled. I used to following command to remove XAMPP
#rm -rf /opt/lampp
Having reinstalled without any errors XAMPP fails to connect to localhost/index.php
Can anyone help?
Many thanks in advance
