Installing Xampp error creating directory /opt/lampp

Postby chummyshit » 26. July 2020 00:07

Hi! I'm using the chrome linux feature and am trying to install Xampp. I have got to the installation wizard (finally). However, when I run it I am faced with the error that says: error creating directory /opt/lamp

Does anyone know why this is happening or how to fix it? Thanks.

p.s. i'm pretty inexperienced with this stuff.

I have attached a video of what happens at the link below (its google drive link and you don't download it plays in the browser.
