    Problem with Xampp server

    I have a problem running Xampp server.
    harish@harish-laptop:~$ sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
    Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.7.1...
    XAMPP: Another web server daemon is already running.
    XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
    XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
    XAMPP for Linux started.

    I dont understand why another webserver is running. I didnt install any apache.
    Please tell me to check whether any server is running.

    Well, you could try to display what processes are running. At a terminal command line:
     sudo ps -A
    or as most servers "listen" to ports then you could run:

     sudo netstat -tunap | grep LISTEN
    The results here may shed some light on what server may be operational.

    Also, your output shows "XAMPP for Linux started.".
    Does it not perform as expected?
    Ubuntu 11.04 on IBM ThinkCentre
    Fedora, VMware Player (windows xp,Knoppix 6.5) on Lenovo Laptop
    GRUB Fedora / Windows 7, VMware Player (Windows 2008 server) on NCIX quad core PC.

    This is the output of the second above command
    harish@harish-laptop:~$ sudo netstat -tunap | grep LISTEN
    tcp 0 0* LISTEN 3141/cupsd
    tcp6 0 0 :::80 :::* LISTEN 3317/apache2
    tcp6 0 0 ::1:631 :::* LISTEN 3141/cupsd

    I searched on google to stop the apache server
    This is the command
    sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop
    Which is useful for me to stop the already running apache server.
    Now i am able to run my xampp server. Thanks for the help.. !!
