I just downloaded XAMPP and I'm having a brutal time with permissions in folders. I feel like I have resolved all issues but one has me stuck. To start XAMPP I use
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
Here is what I get back (note I changed my local name to user):
Starting XAMPP for Linux 8.1.1-2... XAMPP: Starting Apache...already running. XAMPP: Starting MySQL...ok. XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...already running. user:~$ /opt/lampp/bin/mysqld_safe_helper: Can't create/write to file '/opt/lampp/var/mysql/user.err' (Errcode: 13 "Permission denied") /opt/lampp/bin/mysql.server: 263: kill: No such process
In my files, when I got and click on Permissions for this file, it looks like I have permissions, but if anyone has a command that they'd recommend trying I would greatly appreciate it!
