i have previously installed apache2 and somehow i unistalled it but after i installed xammp on ubuntu 11.10 i get this message:

Xampp:Another web server daemon is already running.

Thanks for the article. Any reason to extract to /opt over other locations or is it arbitrary?

i downloaded but a executable named "xampp-linux-x64-1.8.3-2-installer.run" is downloaded now what to do with it. I am a bit confused
