Xampp for Linux

1. Download xampp from http://www.apachefriends.org/download.php?xampp-linux-1.7.2.tar.gz

2. After downloading simply type in the following commands:
* Go to a Linux shell and login as the system administrator root:

* Extract the downloaded archive file to /opt:
tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.7.2.tar.gz -C /opt

Warning: Please use only this command to install XAMPP. DON'T use any Microsoft Windows tools
to extract the archive, it won't work.

Warning 2: already installed XAMPP versions get overwritten by this command.

That's all. XAMPP is now installed below the /opt/lampp directory.

3. After installing xampp start XAMPP using the following command:
/opt/lampp/lampp start

You should now see something like this on your screen:
Starting XAMPP 1.7.2...
LAMPP: Starting Apache...
LAMPP: Starting MySQL...
LAMPP started.

4. OK, that was easy but how can you check that everything really works? Just type in the following URL at your favorite web browser:

Now you should see the start page of XAMPP containing some links to check the status of the installed software and some small programming examples.
