How to Install XAMPP? XAMPP is free software, which supports many operating systems, is a compilation of several programs. Its function is as a stand-alone server, consisting of Apache HTTP Server programs, MySQL databases, and language translators written in the PHP and Perl programming languages.
In this tutorial I will share a little about how to install the XAMPP web server on Linux. For this tutorial I use Debian but the installation method for other distributions is the same.
First, you download XAMPP for Linux first. You will get an installer with a .run file extension. For example, here I downloaded the xampp-linux-x64-7.4.29-1-installer.run. Run the following command:
chmod +x xampp-linux-x64-7.4.29-1-installer.run
sudo ./ xampp-linux-x64-7.4.29-1-installer.run
Wait for the installation process to complete.
To run XAMPP run command
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
To stop XAMPP service run command
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp stop
To run XAMPP GUI Manager, use command
To view XAMPP default index, access http://localhost/dashboard via browser.
