    Wink Joomla is not running


    Hello,

    Can anyone please give me some suggestions about joomla installation
    in linux platform. I'm running a lamp server. I already configured
    apache web server, php and mysql server. I tested all the servers that
    are running. After that I tried to install well known CMS joomla. Before
    running or install joomla first need to run XAMPP server. Joomla actually run
    on that server. My problem is that after instaling XAMPP server when I tried
    to test it that means when I write Open Source and Linux Forums in web browser it still
    shows my apache web server page/my web page. I actually extracted the XAMPP files in /opt file system(/opt/lampp). After that I installed and configured the joomla and extracted it in (/opt/lampp/htdocs/joomla) XAMPP server. After that in testing purposes when I write Not found in web browser, it shows the browser doesn't found.(Apache 2.0/2.1 couldn't found localhost/ in port 80). In that case I cant move forward to configure more options about the joomla(graphical options).

    I actually setup my webpage file in /var/www/html directory.
    I think my apache web server makes an interference with the joomla. thats why
    joomla cant start up.

    I checked in command line:
    shell# sudo ./lampp start
    which shows apache and mysql is already running and XAMPP for linux started.

    but i cant tested in web browser by Not found

    can anyone please give me some idea in that which will be greatful.


    Thank you indeed.

    hai nirvani thanks for your idea. The document root of apache is
    var/www/html and I put my joomla installation file in that directory and when I write in browser Not found for starting joomla I got the following problem.


    Notice: Use of undefined constant PREG_OFFSET_CAPTURE - assumed 'PREG_OFFSET_CAPTURE' in
    /var/www/html/joomla/libraries/joomla/environment/uri.php on line 726

    Notice: Use of undefined constant PREG_OFFSET_CAPTURE - assumed 'PREG_OFFSET_CAPTURE' in
    /var/www/html/joomla/libraries/joomla/environment/uri.php on line 726

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: file_get_contents() in /var/www/html/joomla/libraries
    /joomla/utilities/simplexml.php on line 177

    can you please give me any solution in that.

    Thank you in advance.

    ================================================== =

    Hai nirvani,

    thanks anyway for reply. Actually I'm totally new in php configuration or
    installation. But I install php version 4.2.2. My Php config file path is
    /etc/php.ini
    ====================
    ;Paths & directories;
    =====================
    ;UNIX: "/path1:/path2"
    ;include_path= ".:/php/includes"


    and resister_globals=off

    what I have to do in here can you please give me any suggestion in that.


    thank you in advance.
