I have read somewhere on net that we can install LAMPP (apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html) in such a way that any user can start and/or stop LAMPP server using nobody

Is is possible? Let me know how can I do it?

I want to set permissions so that starting and stopping can be made public.

I am unsure what you are asking. Do want to know if sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start and sudo /opt/lampp/lampp stop works? Or are you asking whether permissions can be set to make starting/stopping public? –  tyjkenn Apr 14 '12 at 21:47

1 Answer 1

cd /opt/lampp/
sudo chmod ugo+rwx lampp

That should give everyone full permission.

You will need to run chmod as a superuser –  danjjl Apr 16 '12 at 19:53
    
Good point, I fixed it. –  tyjkenn Apr 16 '12 at 21:56
