Do you love xampp and also you are a beginner of Linux? Ya that’s sure coz you are here to read it. I am also a XAMPP and Linux lover because I am a web developer. To install xampp in Linux is a simple job and I am here to show you HOW.
First download the latest XAMPP from ApacheFriends. Now I hope you have kept the XAMPP tar.gz file inside your Desktop of LINUX environment.
Now open your Linux terminal (I’m using UBUNTU 10.04). In UBUNTU 10.04 you can open your terminal from Application->Accessories->Terminal. Now do the real job. First you need to extract the files inside a directory. I recommend /opt directory according to ApacheFriends’s suggestion. But I don’t know why. I hope you can extract the file anywhere inside the Linux file system.
Now write down the command in your terminal:
sudo tar xvfz filename.tar.gz -C /opt
Now all of the services of XAMPP will be started. Now go to http://localhost then you will see the default page of XAMPP. Done!!
