If you installing lampp in /opt you need, you must be root  to edit /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf file. ok

2 // Use

sudo gedit /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf

3 // And add this line in the last file:

include /home/username/website/extra-httpd.conf

save and close ok……

4 // now..

ServerName http://www.yourname.com
DocumentRoot /home/username/website/www.yourname.com

How to install and setting up LAMPP/XAMPP In Linux

1 // The commands in this HOWTO must be entered in the terminal:

Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal

2 // Download XAMPP to your Home :

wget http://ovh.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/xampp/xampp-linux-1.7.tar.gz

3 // And extract the files :

tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.7.tar.gz -C /opt

4 // Create a XAMPP start menu entry:

cd ~/.local/share/applications

gedit xampp-control-panel.desktop

5 // Paste the following into the open file ” just for new version” :

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=Start/Stop XAMPP
Name=XAMPP Control Panel
Exec=gksudo /opt/lampp/share/xampp-control-panel/xampp-control-panel
Name[en_CA]=XAMPP Control Panel
Comment[en_CA]=Start/Stop XAMPP

Save and close the file.

7 // Publish:
XAMPP uses /opt/lampp/htdocs as the root web directory, but you can publish pages in your home directory this way.

cd ~

mkdir public_html

sudo ln -s ~/public_html /opt/lampp/htdocs/$USER

Now any files and folders you place in ~/public_html will be
published to your personal webserver.

8 // Start XAMPP via the terminal:

cd /opt/lampp

sudo ./lampp start

9 // Stop XAMPP (if necessary):

cd /opt/lampp
sudo ./lampp stop

10 // Or Via the XAMPP Control Panel:

Applications -> Other -> XAMPP Control Panel

11 // Now Security:


  1. 1. The MySQL root user has a blank password.
    2. MySQL is accessible via your local network.
    3. ProFTPD has user “nobody” with password “lampp”.
    4. PhpMyAdmin is accessible via the local network.
    5. Examples are accessible via the local network.
    6. MySQL and Apache running under the same user “nobody”.

12 // To configure some of the security features of xampp:

cd /opt/lampp

sudo ./lampp security
