When stopping xampp service (apache) with a command like below on a linux operating system:

sudo /opt/lampp/lampp stop

I get an error like below:

XAMPP: Stopping
apachectl returned 1.
XAMPP: Stopping MySQL...not running.
XAMPP: Stopping ProFTPD...not running.

To fix it, try the following methods:

sudo rm -f /opt/lampp/logs/

The rm command stands for “remove” and the -f option will “force” delete files without regard to permissions and will also ignore non-existent files.

Then try stopping the xampp service again.

  1. Open LAMPP using text editor, for example i’m using nano.
nano /opt/lampp/lampp

2. Find the text as below.

# XAMPP is currently 32 bit only
case `uname -m` in
if $XAMPP_ROOT/bin/php -v > /dev/null 2>&1
$GETTEXT -s “XAMPP is currently only availably as 32 bit application. Please use a 32 bit compatibility library for your system.”
exit 1

3. Remove or just comment the code

# XAMPP is currently 32 bit only
#case `uname -m` in
# *_64)
# if $XAMPP_ROOT/bin/php -v > /dev/null 2>&1
# then

  1. Open LAMPP file using a text editor, for example, I use nano.
nano /opt/lampp/lampp

2. Find the text as below.

osguess() {
if test -f /etc/redhat-release
if egrep "9 " /etc/redhat-release > /dev/null
echo "rh9"
return 0
echo "linux"
return 0
elif test "$(uname)" = "Darwin"
echo "macosx"
return 0
if test -f /etc/vfstab
echo "solaris"
return 0
echo "linux"
return 0

Look at the 4th line

if egrep "9 " /etc/redhat-release > /dev/null

Change the number “9 “ to the CentOS version you are using (for example I use CentOS version 6.x)

if egrep "6 " /etc/redhat-release > /dev/null

3. Save or WriteOut by pressing Ctrl+O (if you are using nano), then press Enter

You need to install glibc alongside your current installation of glibc as you cannot update to glibc 2.14 directly in centos 6.x safely. Follow the steps below to install glibc 2.14:

  1. mkdir ~/glibc214
  2. cd ~/glibc214
  3. wget
  4. tar zxvf glibc-2.14.tar.gz
  5. cd glibc-2.14
  6. mkdir build
  7. cd build
  8. ../configure — prefix=/opt/glibc-2.14
  9. make -j4
  10. sudo make install
  11. export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/glibc-2.14/lib (for current login session)
  12. OR add LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/glibc-2.14/lib in the /etc/environment and perform source /etc/environment(to add env variable permanently)
