    Re: Install Xampp server

    As it says you need to run the command as root...
    Code:
    sudo /opt/lampp/lamppstart
    Is there any reason you are using Xampp instead of the standard LAMP stack in the Ubuntu repositories?

    I use xampp too. It's easy to backup and migrate through systems and installs and easy to configure with all stuff in one place.

    Just: sudo /opt/lampp/lamp start and it will work.

    In addition you might want to make a symbolic link from your htdocs to a folder in your /home that you can easily edit. Search this forum there is a clear explanation somewhere on xampp

    From personal experience I can confirm that this is the most simple way to set up a local web hosting environment.

    You don't even need to install tasksel, you can get the same result with...
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lamp-server^ phpmyadmin
