How to install XAMPP in Linux Centos 6.4

Posted: May 13, 2013 in FX Pipeline, Linux




XAMPP Installation in CentOS 6.4 64bit
Many people know from their own experience that it’s not easy to install an Apache web server and it gets harder if you want to add MySQL, PHP and Perl.
XAMPP is an easy to install Apache distribution containing MySQL, PHP and Perl. XAMPP is really very easy to install and to use – just download, extract and start.
tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.8.1.tar.gz -C /opt

/opt/lampp/lampp start


make sure Apache httpd service is off (otherwide xampp will not start)
service httpd stop

if phpmyadmin is not open

Edit /opt/lampp/etc/extra/httpd-xampp.conf
and adding Require all granted line at bottom of block <Directory “/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin”> to have the following code:
<Directory “/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin”>
AllowOverride AuthConfig Limit
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
Require all granted

  3. Thanks alot! I’m working on CentOS 6.4, I was wondering why the new installation package stops. Not related to this version, but I really want to know why the “.run” file which was available from apachefriends fail to install. It seems to give me an error stating that it was not able to create “symbolic” link and aborts. I would really appreciate your help.
