How can I install xampp in Ubuntu

Install XAMPP on Ubuntu

XAMPP is a drive environment for PHP. In Linux, it includes Apache, MySQL, PEAR, SQLite, phpMyAdmin, ProFTPD and much more. This package is ideal for a test server, as everything is immediately available in one installation.

This tutorial shows how to install XAMPP on Ubuntu. If you don't have a (virtual) test server with Ubuntu yet, this tutorial will help you.

By the way: XAMPP is the new name of LAMPP, just so you know ^^

installation

Then let's start with the installation. Click on a screenshot to see the description for the step.

access data

Now I wanted to list the standard access data again, because I always forget them myself ^^

MySQL database

User: root

Password: Empty

FTP

User: nobody

Password: lampp

Instead of fiddling around with your own IP, you can simply type in 127.0.0.1 and get the same result. Or you just write "localhost"

For me it's a virtual computer (that's the second part of a tutorial). That's why I don't want to access it from the virtual computer but from my "normal" computer. Then I need the IP for that.

Many Thanks! Really helpful! It's fun (distributing files with xampp .....)!

I only found the website today and saw that the tutorial is a bit older than that. But I haven't found such well-made tutorials anywhere as here. My compliments, really well done. PS: With some tutorials it is a bit annoying if you have to switch back and forth between the different images. Otherwise good; P

There is also a newer version of how to get Apache and Co to run on Ubuntu Server: http://blog.stevieswebsite.de/2010/08/ubuntu-server-installation-auf-virtualbox/ For turning the page: On some I have already built in the pages, but I have to test whether it works with the picture gallery.

Hey, I have followed all the steps, but when I enter my IP into the browser (Mozilla Firefox), it just says: It works! This is the default web page for this server. The web server software is running but no content has been added yet.

Can anyone help me with this?

You're already done ;-) The It-Works is the sample page from XAMPP. You can now post your content there (e.g. via FTP).

Hey Stefan, you are talking about running the virtual Linux environment and continuing to work in the Windows version. So you simulate a web server as a virtual server, if I have understood all that correctly. I got the IP from the Linux VM and ran it in the Linux VM in Firefox. I get the XAMPP page displayed. But if I enter the IP outside of the VM, I get page load time errors ... Did I do something wrong? Or misunderstood? Greetings Paul

Hi, have a look in the network settings of your VM software. You may have to change something. Greetings Stefan
