Installing XAMPP Server on Lubuntu 16

New Year 2017 and New Hobbies set up.

As my 12 years old laptop was sitting idle after my sleekbook arrival, I decided it was time to make it up and running. I installed Lubuntu since Microsoft decided to feed Windows XP to the wolves of the dark world.

Here are the process I did just in case you need it.

Download a copy of an  XAMPP Linux version from the site Download XAMPP. For example,  we can download the file

XAMPP Linux x64 Installer

2. Run cd command to go to your directory and execute the installation file:
sudo chmod +x
sudo ./

We will see a newly generated pop-up window. Just click the Next button and uncheck the  “Learn more about BitNami for XAMPP” checkbox. We'll install the XAMPP and run it.

To stop the XAMPP, we can:

sudo /opt/lampp/lampp stop
To strat  the XAMPP, we can:
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start

We can try the url http://localhost from our browser to see the page on our server.

And then one important thing to do- set the Security settings:
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp security
Always say yes by pressing Enter key and key in our password.
