Hi guys, i following the easy to setup xampp guide (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=223410) and it seemed to install ok but when it came to starting it up i ran into a couple of issues, i done /opt/lampp/lampp panel and it brought up the xampp control panel and it says "Apache STOPPED" and when i try to click on execute it says "A new MainWindow has been created
Apache execute button clicked
/opt/lampp/lampp: line 195: echo: write error: Broken pipe

Not sure what to do here? Also when going to http://localhost it doesnt work, please help!

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start

If that fails;

apt-get install apache2 php5 mysql-server phpmyadmin

That's probably all you need from a LAMP install anyhow. :)
