Just installed latest
xampp package on my localhost and on my terminal everything looks fine as shown below:
root@SKYBUNTU:/home/maze# /opt/lampp/lampp start Starting XAMPP for Linux 5.6.3-0... XAMPP: Starting Apache...ok. XAMPP: Starting MySQL...ok. XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...ok.
But when I tried to open
phpmyadmin I get the following error:
Error MySQL said: Documentation #2002 - No such file or directory The server is not responding (or the local server's socket is not correctly configured). Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed.
I also looked at my status from the the XAMPP page on localhost and it shows that my MySQL database is deactivated.
Component Status Hint MySQL database DEACTIVATED PHP ACTIVATED Perl ACTIVATED Common Gateway Interface (CGI) ACTIVATED Server Side Includes (SSI) ACTIVATED PHP extension »OPcache« DEACTIVATED see FAQ PHP extension »OCI8/Oracle« DEACTIVATED see FAQ
Can someone please tell/show how to fix this on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I desperately need this to be working.
