Xampp technical install

Post by Mangar »

Not to be a bugger, but I spent the whole day on a 12 hr shift putting my notes in order to set up a Xampp install.

I had linuxmint.com , a few videos for istall to LM 16, even Ubuntu.
http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1016 mainly 10% how to start the download.
http://www.ihaveapc.com/2010/08/how-to- ... inux-mint/
http://www.yourownlinux.com/2014/01/ins ... linux.html dropped off 50% direction, I continued below

All steps were going great via terminal, was able to set the admin and passwords for all, set the security made short cuts for localhost and where stuff was being placed.
The first 50% of online installs were about on spot, then every single one of them never continued or ended the steps after the

After I finished looking at the three above to make sure I was continuing in the right directions and I was.

Errrr,.... well all the help tips and links above just stopped, I was still flying by the seat of my pants creating passwords when ask, and clicking in the popups in the localhost splash screens. I guess I made it through ok and xampp is install and seems to be installed.

It like there should have been 3 more pages of documentation?? Where are they......

I figure OK let me close each window and make sure nothing else is ask of me that none of the tech url even listed.

I restart the PC, and none of the local files are found, no icons, nothing. ......nothing.....nothing.....

I have got past the bluefish install, browser, wine and other things by installing stuff half blind or 90% blind. I think it a bit sad that it might take 3-6 installs breaking them till one figures out which is the better way of doing it. What should take an hour or less than a day gets dragged out into days :x yes it is a little rant.

Going to take a break today and go watch a movie 8) *I have no hair left*

It is getting very very very tiring doing something like 4-6 times to get good results.

Xampp technical install custom link or start up?

Post by Mangar »

For those that finish installing xampp and were able to set everything up. I shut down and restarted my PC figured I would have had a short cut back to the interface.
so when you get back on the PC the only way to Start apache2 or xampp is terminal;

cd /opt/lampp

then

sudo ./manager-linux.run

Is there any way to create a short cut to start it? or add to start-up? custom menu icon, I am trying to set this PC as a home server for testing and displaying more then one website.
