Hi. I had Apache, MySQL, PHP5 running on my system... was i happy? Nooo! I had to have GD library and OpenSSL. So i decided to give XAMPP a try. Unfortunately, i didn't shut the old apache server down correctly. I went into Synaptic package manger and uninstalled the old stuff but when I type
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
the result is:
Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.5.2...
XAMPP: Another web server daemon is already running.
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for Linux started.
so when i type http://localhost/ into the browser, i get sent to the old directory located at /var/www/apache2-default/
I am running completely local just for instructional purposes.
So what should i do with the original Apache? Have i succeeded in totally messing up my system? Thanx.

Now you tell me!! I was looking for GD library under "g"
That may have been a lot easier. But, I have an extra 40G drive and now that i have already committed, i think will install Ubuntu without any of the AMPP stuff, and then install XAMPP 1.5.2. It has so many different technologies all bundled together, (see below) with sample scripts (that work hopefully) It seemed like a good way to learn about them which is all i want to do at this point. I do wonder:
If you want a really secure web-server is XAMPP the best choice?
