How to Install XAMPP 1.7.1 for Linux Ubuntu 9.04
Welcome to my tutorial on how to install XAMPP 1.7.1 to Ubuntu 9.04. So now, we’re going to get started. We’re going to first so we’ve already downloaded your package. Next, we’re going to go to our command. Now I like to log in as the super admin by using the sudo-S command and then we’ll type in my password for that. And now, we won't have to keep typing sudo after I’ve done that.
All right, the next thing I need to do, I need to go CD desktop and then I need to type tar, xpfz, XAMPP, Linux 1.7.1.tar.gz, c then opt. All right, I'm just going to wait for that to fully extract and finish.
Now that’s done so the next thing is going to be to actually start XAMPP. So we’re going to do word/opt, lampp, lampp and then start. Then everything should load just fine.
All right, it’s now loaded. So the next thing we’re going to do, we’re going to try it out real quick. If you did everything right, you shouldn’t go to right here and go to local host and there you go. Now pick your language.
If you do not worry, if you're not going to make this a public server then you don’t have to go through the rest of this, but if at any time you're going to make it public, you might not do this. This is how you can secure it. So one of the greatest security here is you can see here, you go to security and it is not secure.
All right, so now we’re going to come down here and we’re going to select this. I'm going to do a copy and then we’re going to go back over here and then we’re going to do a paste and press enter.
All right, now we can go to “Do you want to secure my password?” I will type yes and we’re going to enter my password. This is to be able to gain access to the XAMPP area. There's access full in. Do you want me to turn it off? So, yes. Alright, yes. We need to set up a password here.
Alright and we need to set one for root too. Alright, so FTP, do we want to change the password then yes. All right and then we’re done. So we’ll go back to this screen here and we’ll click refresh where we’re known asks for a username. It should be lampp and whatever password you entered for that.
So now we go back and click on security and everything is secure. So now you're good to go. To start adding files to your folders, you go to places, floppy drive, computer, our file system, opt, lamp and then htdocs and here you go. This is where you find all your documents. So now you have successfully installed the XAMPP for Linux and now you can go on and start building your website.
