Topic : Errors during install Ubuntu 16.04

Posted By: zerox42 on November 8, 2017, 4:59 am
I've had some issues running AMPPS on Ubuntu, so I ran "" from the installed directory.
These errors are exactly the same as when I installed it the first time.


Applying Permissions...
sed: can't read /usr/local/ampps/Pure-FTPd/etc/pure-ftpd.conf: No such file or directory

It is telling that AMPPS is unable install Apache as a service but you can ignore that message because you can start Apache from AMPPS panel as daemon process.

If you want Apache to be install as a service then try installing from AMPPS Panel. (AMPPS Panel --> Options --> Settings --> select "start Apache and MySQL as a service")

I know this post is pretty old but I have the exact same problem as I installed ammps on Mint.The log in my xterm is really very similar.

In the ampps console I only see MySql as Running.
Both Apache and PHP 5.6 are Stopped.
In the settings, Apache and mYSql are ticked to start as services.
And in the Softaculous console I only see 3 elements : Apache, PHP 5.6 and MySql. Compared to what is on the installation documentation page, I do not get a match.
I'm going to reboot, just in case but I do not think this ill change anything as I've already rebooted once.
Please advise and thanks in advance for your help !

The post is no longer new, but there are still problems with starting AMPPS on Ubuntu. After installing Apache, the problem did not resolve. Is it possible to follow this link and help me? I'll be very grateful.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix.
