View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to auto start XAMPP in Ubuntu?
March 1st, 2012, 03:14 PM
I am trying to automatically start XAMPP for Linux (LAMPP) after Ubuntu reboot/boot. I have tried lots of solutions available in internet. None worked for me.
Could someone help me please? I am using Ubuntu 11.10

I was struggling with the same thing. This was very useful http://menatronics.blogspot.com/2012/01/lampp-installation-to-securing-your.html?showComment=1332943543823#c8137946384736 629784
but didn't work for me because the permissions on /etc/init.d/lampp
Here is the complete proccess that worked for me (Ubuntu 11.10, Xampp 1.7.7)
1. Create a script in init.d called lampp
sudo gedit /etc/init.d/lampp
2. Paste this code on the script and save
3. Give -x permissions to the file
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/lampp
4. Use update-rc.d to install init scripts to all runlevel by typing
sudo update-rc.d lampp defaults

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I needed to do this too and thought I'd add to it for anyone else who stumbles across it. That file should really be:
That way you can run:
service lampp stop
or similar to control it.
You may also find it helpful on ubuntu to add a umask definition in that file if you have set up appache with it's own user/group. E.g.
