After downloading simply type in the following commands:
1. Go to a Linux shell and login as the system administrator root:
2. Extract the downloaded archive file to /opt:
tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.4.14.tar.gz -C /opt
Warning: Please use only this command to install XAMPP. DON'T use any Microsoft Windows tools to extract the archive, it won't work.
Warning 2: already installed XAMPP versions get overwritten by this command.
That's all. XAMPP is now installed below the /opt/lampp directory.
I'm not getting this <_>
