Hey all, I'm new to linux - and I want to keep on using linux but I need to make sure xampp wil work.

I install xammp on my fedora 19 and when I'm getting to: localhost on my browser I'm getting the error: Access forbidden! I follow all the avilabale guides, tried everything but nothing worked.

Please advise! I'm really losing my mind here, spent 2 days to solve this issue.

What guides have you tried to use? It's probably either a misconfiguration of Apache, or a directory that Apache does not have read permissions for. Use to show us your httpd.conf.

Instead of Xampp, you could use Apache Web Server (As soon as I started using Linux, I ditched Xampp):

$ sudo dnf install httpd

Enter y when prompted. The first time, run this command:

$ sudo systemctl enable httpd.service

To start the webserver: $ sudo systemctl start httpd

Now you can go to http://localhost in peace

the default directory for the server is /var/www/html/

To stop the webserver: $ sudo systemctl stop httpd
