It turns out that the solution is to stop all the services and solve the “Another daemon is already running” issue. I am assuming that you have installed it as in /opt/lampp/lampp

The commands you can try to solve the issue are as follows:

sudo /opt/lampp/lampp stop              
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop    
sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop

You can also type instead:

sudo service apache2 stop
sudo service mysql stop

After that, we start again the lampp services:

sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start

Now, there must be no problems while opening:


Hope it will work..Answer could be more accurate if I would be able to have that attached screen short that you have not uploaded other then just caption.
