Good morning guys. Today we’ll install XAMPP on our Linux platform. As we all know that XAMPP provides all the facilities to run a decent Web Server at one place. So far I was using XAMPP on Windows platform when I was dealing with Joomla. But now I am going to install it on my RHEL5 machine.

So first of all download XAMPP which we are going to install from sourceforge. Now when you have this with you let’s switch to our machine and start typing some commands.

  • Extract files to /opt directory using command
  • Now you have a directory under /opt which is lampp.
  • Start XAMPP server using command: /opt/lampp/lampp start
  • Now open htpp://localhost in your browser and you’ll see XAMPP home page.XAMPP for Linux
