I have an XAMPP installation on Ubuntu 14.04 and its been working great ever since I installed it under 13.10, up until today. I was going to check something in my MySQL database via phpMyAdmin through the XAMPP page, which I normally access via
However, I went to do this today, and I just get a page that looks like this:
If I access phpMyAdmin via
localhost/phpmyadmin it pulls up just fine.
However, none of my projects (all with index.html files in sub-folders) appear, or even the default index.html page. I added an
index.html file to
/var/www/html (I had read this question regarding the new apache version in 14.04) and it displayed that page.
I also noticed that if I run the command
sudo /opt/lampp/xampp start it says this:
Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.8.3-3... XAMPP: Starting Apache...fail. <----------!!! XAMPP: Another web server is already running. <----------!!! XAMPP: Starting MySQL...already running. XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...already running.
which makes me think that the updated version of apache (installed with 14.04) is interfering with XAMPP somehow.
Funny thing is, if I FTP in (ProFTPD installed with XAMPP) I can see all of my files like normal.
I know that XAMPP stores its files in
/opt/lampp/htdocs, and all of my files are still there, but I can't access them.
I have googled all over the place for a fix, no one else seems to have run into this issue yet. Is there a fix for this, or is XAMPP rendered useless with 14.04?
I installed XAMPP via the installer.run file from the Apache Friends website and I'm running XAMPP 1.8.3-3, as you could see.
The version of Apache is the default installed one for Ubuntu 14.04
2.4.7-1ubuntu4. Configuration is default AFAIK, nothing changed around.
I would agree with the comments in saying that it looks like I have another instance of Apache installed, but I removed the LAMP bundle software I had previously installed before I installed XAMPP via the .run installer.
apt-cache policy apache2 output, as suggested by Braiam:
