XAMPP installation
 
Hello
I just installed XAMPP for linux

i followed the isntructions given on the website

http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html#374

now the page says that after starting sampp we should get something like this

Starting XAMPP 1.7.3a...
LAMPP: Starting Apache...
LAMPP: Starting MySQL...
LAMPP started.

but what i am getting is something different...
Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.7.3a...
XAMPP: Another web server daemon is already running.
XAMPP: Another MySQL daemon is already running.
XAMPP: Another FTP daemon is already running.
XAMPP for Linux started.

can anyone tell me how to configure this???

There is another Apache, Mysql and FTP daemon is running, if so why installed xampp?
To check the services
ps aux | grep servicename (http, mysql and ftp)

A bit late, but that PHP file must be processed by the webserver and therefore needs to be somewhere in the document root of a website (usually somewhere in /var/html or so, but it depends on the configuration)

Do you think that we can access your server via localhost

The mysql daemon writes info to an error log; find that fgile and it will probably tell you what the problems is.

The default location is in the MySQL data directory and the file is called 'hostname.err' (replace hostname with the actual hostname of your system). I don't use XAMPP, so can't help with the exact solution.

XAMPP is fine for testing--that's what it's made for--and, if you run the lampp security script, you can button it down pretty tight. Heck, I self-hosted my little tiny website on XAMPP for three years without a security problem, but I'm so small no one knows I'm there anyway. I am also the king of locking down firewalls and routers, but that's another story.

I spent today fine-tuning my XAMPP installation on Slackware 13.0, so I could test changes to my website before bringing them live to the big wide world on my hosting service.

jadhravi, you don't mention what distro you are using. It could be that it has already started apache (httpd) and mysqld to run on boot up. That would account for the conflicts. Try running ps -A in a terminal as root before starting XAMPP. If you have httpd and mysqld or mysql-safe running, that indicates that they are starting on boot.

smoosh, did you click on your desired language at the splash screen? It won't go farther until you select your language. Also, what happens when you point your browser at http://localhost? If XAMPP is working, it should display "It Works" in your browser.

I got rid of XAMPP. installed all 3 .. httpd, mysql and phpmyadmin separately. This is more handy than xampp, i guess.
now struggling with phpmyadmin login errors.
