    I don't really know. What have you tried?

    I replied to you in this post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...4&postcount=16

    Did you try restarting XAMPP?

    Did you check to see if a firewall is blocking the connection?

    You could try removing XAMPP and reinstalling.

    Try the above things and re-post what you did and what happened.

    I've definately tried restarting it. Rebooting, stopping, and starting it. I don't get errors when starting, each service(apache,php,mysql,proftpd) all start and stop without errors(reported by the stopping and starting).

    how can I check for a firewall?

    I have did the rm command posted on the xampp site, to uninstall. reinstall it, and repeated this each time I decide to try and get it working again.


    Sorry I didn't reply to your last post, I thought you were talking to someone else.

    Thanks for replying.

    If your still getting a "Connection is timed out" error it could be a firewall. By default Ubuntu doesn't have any form of firewall, so nothing should stop xampp.

    Have you installed firestarter? or another firewall program? Have you modified anything to do with iptables? What version of Ubuntu are you using?

    I updated the XAMPP Control Panel section to hopefully make it easier.

    I tried the method you sugested for adding the control panel to a menu, it did not work.
    What I wound up doing was going into the alacarte menu editor and open up the group I wanted the xxamp control pannel to be in. Then opened File > New Entry Gave it a name and in the command text box entered:
    Code:
    gksudo "python /opt/lampp/share/xampp-control-panel/xampp-control-panel.py"
    Works liked a champ. and I learned how to add a python program to a menu.

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

    How can I use Mysql-Administrator with XAMPP when I tried to connect to localhost with it I got the following error:

    Code:
    Could not connect to host 'localhost'.
    MySQL Error Nr. 2002
    Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
    
    Click the 'Ping' button to see if there is a networking problem.

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

    I'm sort of confused, is the mysql-administrator something included in the XAMPP package, or are you trying to get a Ubuntu package to interface with the XAMPP mysql?

    I looked at the mysql-administrator page at MySQL AB's site and you should be able to do everything in phpmyadmin, which is included with the XAMPP package. I've heard rumors of a problem with the mysql-administrator package in Ubuntu (Sudo issues? Could someone confirm?) You could try downloading the tar.gz package from MySQL AB and installing that into /opt to try out the official package.

    This is really outside my experience and I'm sort of shooting in the dark. If someone else could better help Aurdal it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks alot for that! Though I guess I don't really need the control panel, it's nice to have it.

    Actually, it takes about four minutes using Ubuntu Dapper.

    Not that Xampp is a bad thing, but that statement is wrong.

    Ok, you may be right. I haven't actually tried it. I'll add a disclaimer.
