    Default Install server as local host trouble.

    Googled and forum surfed but came beck home for some help.
    This is the install instructions from Xampp page.

    apache friends - xampp for linux


    Code:
      
    Step 2: Installation - After downloading simply type in the following commands: 
    
    
    1. Go to a Linux shell and login as the system administrator root: su
    2. Extract the downloaded archive file to /opt: tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.7.4.tar.gz -C /opt Warning: Please use only this command to install XAMPP. DON'T use any Microsoft Windows tools to extract the archive, it won't work. Warning 2: already installed XAMPP versions get overwritten by this command.
    That's all. XAMPP is now installed below the /opt/lampp directory.
    Okay here I go. Several things as I have never setup a server. I want a local host where I can work with an existing website without borking the actual site and maybe use it to learn php and some website development. Apache 2 server, PHP, and Mysql, phpMyAdmin, etc. Looking at Xampp but having trouble getting the tar to install per instructions in code quotes. Thought about logging in as root and unpacking in /opt but thought I'd check here in the forums. I would like to be able to work with the ftp'd copy I have of the site from the remote host. To install a tar should be easy but I can't seem to get it.

    I did install the server and packages with patterns in Yast but the config's needed for local host and setting up the remote files for a local host that doesn't start at boot also eluded me. Decided to uninstall pattern and try Xampp.

    Any help appreciated.

    LAMP is a 1-click install from RPMs in openSUSE (thought u should know but feel free to stick with Xampp)

    Lamp not quit the same thing is it ? Xampp sits in /opt. Not sure if it's good or bad or makes no difference.

    You're right, not quite the same, stick w xampp if that pleases you, I have no special recommendation for LAMP.

    Moved the tar to opt and unpacked there. No package "installation" involved. This looks to be an adventure.
