As stated in this post:

To Uninstall Xampp, use

sudo -i 
cd /opt/lampp 
./uninstall

But I think you may simplify by just typing:

sudo /opt/lampp/uninstall

Open a terminal and remove the folder with:

sudo rm -r /opt/lampp

That's all.

But since I do not know where you have downloaded the installation file, I can not prove what was also installed.

Simply,

  1. Open Terminal

  2. Run command sudo /opt/lampp/uninstall

A popup of xampp will jump asking whether you are sure about this uninstallation.

Click yes

TADAA.. It's done.

    cd /opt/lampp
    
  2. Run the unistallation script:

  3. Follow the prompts

Removing Xampp completely from Ubuntu 20.04 is way too easy than before. Open the terminal by typing Ctrl+Alt+T and then type the following command:

sudo /opt/lampp/uninstall

And boom! You're good to go. If you got any other Linux distro then just go through these simple blog posts about Removing Xampp and you'll find all commands there.
