Unhappy Installing Bitmani Wordpress into Xampp


Hi,
I am endeavouring to install Wordpress into XAMPP.

I have just installed Linux Mint Mate 17 Qiana on a Compaq Presario V3000 with 2geg Ram.
Did have Petra on this machine prior and had used Nadia on an old desktop of mine both had Windows XP on them.
So relitively new to Linux so please do keep it simple if that is possible.

Have allready tried ./ on the Wordpress intaller.run file and struck the brickwall concerning acces to the /opt/lampp directories.

Have managed to find my way too Root through a bit of trial and error and have found the file I want, now it is a case of getting the file to execute.

My aim is to get this machine to act like a sever so I can test my website prior to publication.
I have succesfully installed XAMPP and passwords are set for MySQL, FTP and Php.
It is the next stage I am having issues with.
The below is all using my Admin Password yet by the looks of it I am unable to execute the run file.
The following is what I have come up in the terminal.

sherlock-Presario-V3000-RM609PA-ABG ~ # cd /root/Downloads
sherlock-Presario-V3000-RM609PA-ABG Downloads # ls
bitnami-wordpress-4.0-0-module-linux-x64-installer.run
sherlock-Presario-V3000-RM609PA-ABG Downloads # ./bitnami-wordpress-4.0-0-module-linux-x64-installer.run
bash: ./bitnami-wordpress-4.0-0-module-linux-x64-installer.run: Permission denied
sherlock-Presario-V3000-RM609PA-ABG Downloads #

I have tried moving the file to my home Downloads folder however then I get the brickwall of Acess dinied for the destination folder in /opt/lampp when executing the installer.run file.
What options do I have from here to get this program installed where it needs to be installed?
How do I do this?

Do I need to move the installer.run file into the opt/Lampp dirrectory and then execute the installer.run file?
If I do need to move that file how do I do this in Terminal mode?


I suspect I may run into the same issues when I go to install TNG (The Next Generation) for WordPress, TNG is a genealogical app for Wordpress.

Read https://bitnami.com/stack/wordpress/README.txt, the chapters 3. COMPONENTS and 5. INSTALLATION.

A more elaborate reply

- The goal of Linux is (well it isn't but for this thread it'll do ;-p) to provide you with a set of tools that work efficiently, with good security and with good performance. Using Linux like it is intended requires more than pointing and clicking. So read your Linux Distributions user and admin documentation and practice.
- Linux Distributions like Linux Mint already come with software to turn your machine into a web server.
*If you do not want to turn your machine into a web server you could run virtualization software like VirtualBox, Vmware or QEMU to safely run an OS inside your OS.
- Bitnami provides a "software stack". XAMPP is a development tool. XAMPP is not for production use. Also XAMPP uses directory names not seen in production (if you do then you should find another hosting company). So not only are BNitnami and XAMPP utterly unnecessary (as Mint provides Apache, MySQL and PHP) they also burden your system with software packages you can't update using your distro-supplied package management tools.

The Apache, MySQL and PHP vendor web sites provide documentation. Just like Linux documentation you should read it and practice.

...and have a tendency to do too much as root...

could be useful as something to do a quick-and-dirty evaluation (eg, does WP have this feature, that I absolutely need, for, if it doesn't, I need to find something other than WP), couldn't be useful for anything more serious.
