whats the problem,

Can you help me

  • please list the output of the command uname -m – Maythux Feb 3 '14 at 6:28
  • Sounds like a source code bug to me. Write to the xampp guys. They have been quick to fix bugs i have found in the past. unterminated quote is probably the exact problem in the .run source. – j0h Feb 3 '14 at 9:04
  • Thanks it was helpful for installing xampp on my ubuntu 12.04 laptop.......... – Sanket Patel Mar 11 '14 at 9:38
  • I too had the same problem You probably have a 32 bit operating system. The file xampp-linux-x64-1.8.3-2-installer.run is for 64 bit OS. Try using the other version. Worked for me!! – user262214 Mar 26 '14 at 11:03

You can install it using the ppa

Add the ppa:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/xampp


sudo apt-get update

Install XAMPP:

sudo apt-get install xampp
