I am new to Ubuntu, and any console based os. I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS installed and want to migrate all my Windows based work on to Ubuntu a bit at a time.
I have managed to install and configure several packages that I will need, and I had Xampp working fine until I installed GnuCash. This instantly crashed my Xampp and would also not load itself either. I tried uninstalling the GnuCash package but was unable to get the Xampp to run again. So I uninstalled the Xampp package as well, I removed the old Xampp and GnuCash directories that the uninstall left behind and tried doing things in a different order.
To cut this long story short I eventually managed to get the GnuCash installed and working, then Xampp to install but only with the Apache 2 server working. I did this by installing MySql first, (With workbench as I will be needing these two anyway), but I cannot get the MySql server to connect to Xampp, and the proFTPD server will not run either.
This means I can do my accounting, build MySql databases, and Host static web pages. What I need to be able to do is get the MySql and proFTPD servers working with Xampp.
Please remeber I am new to this and still getting used to using the console, plus i don't know which configuration files I need to be editing.
