    Re: HOWTO: Setup easy web development environment (XAMPP)

    update: I figured out I needed to manually create the applications folder. I'm not used to being unable to see hidden folders.

    However XAMPP is not showing up under 'internet' in my applications folder. How do I reach the GUI control panel?


    *******************]]

    I'm trying to install the GUI control panel but when I try to create the .dekstop file I get an error.

    To use the sweet gtk/python control panel:

    Run in a terminal

    Code:
    gedit ~/.local/share/applications/xampp-control-panel.desktop
    The error is: "Could not find the file /home/cal/.local/a...mpp-control-panel.desktop"

    It's saying it can't find the file it's trying to save??

    This was pretty helpful thanks. I am struggling a bit still tho. I got xampp installed in /opt, but when I run the GUI admin you showed i can't get Mysql or Apache2 to start...

    I had another instance of mysql and apache installed but i have stopped both of those manually at the command line...

    any idea how to start up the /opt version of mysql and apache?

    thanks in advance!

    For anyone else struggling to find the GUI panel it is under 'other' in the main app menu.

    Thanks for this article.

    For those who are having troubles with the Xampp control panel, try to update python-gtk2.
    You can use Synaptic.

    Does the control panel include any means of handling their closing phpMyAdmin for security reasons?

    What you can do is change the "DocumentRoot" in the httpd.conf file for XAMPP.

    Open a terminal:
    Code:
    sudo cp /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf.backup
    sudo gedit /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf
    Now Scroll down to the line:
    Code:
    DocumentRoot "/opt/lampp/htdocs"
    and change it to point to your fat32 drive. (? "/media/fat32/" ?)

    I'd suggest to point it only to a web subdirectory on the drive as serving up the root of the drive will put all of the files on it onto the webserver and allowing anyone to view them.

    Changing this will make the fancy http://localhost/xampp test stuff stop working. (It is installed into /opt/lampp/htdocs/) Everything else should work.

    Hope that helps.
    Hi Peter
    Can use the same command if I as an example want to place my doc-root in / ?

    /lamp/WWW/

    is hwat I mean, like it is in Wamp under windows
