Where are the logs/config of lampp?


I followed a tutorial from this forum on installing lampp on my manjaro (HowTo Install Apache , MariaDB(Mysql),PHP (LAMP)). Everything works fine, but I can’t find any logs (php_error_log) or configs.

Before I reinstalled Manjaro last week, I used a lampp installation from ubuntuusers_de, which was way easier to get running (3 terminal commands) and had all files in one dir. Additionally it needed to be started with a command and was easy to restart or shutdown the server, while the new manjaro-version is running all the time after every bootup.

Is there a way to get a similar DE with the already installed manjaro-version or do I have to switch back to the ubuntu version?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english.

Logs are in your journal or in /var/log . For Apache (httpd) the normal folder is /var/log/httpd/
But you can configure any other folder you want, just make sure you set the correct permissions.
The config for httpd is in /etc/httpd/ , since you followed the tutorial you should know that.

If you don’t want to run httpd on every startup, don’t enable the service. If the service is enabled, disable it.

systemctl disable httpd 

To start a service you can use

systemctl start httpd 

to stop

systemctl stop httpd 

Did you mean with DE Desktop Environment. Ubuntu uses Gnome, there is a Manjaro Gnome edition. But depending on the Manjaro edition you used to install your system, it might be better to do a fresh install.

If you don’t have time to learn a completely new distribution and don’t want the benefits Manjaro provides you might be better of with a distribution you know.


That makes me think… :thinking: so you followed this: [HowTo] Install Apache , MariaDB(Mysql),PHP (LAMP) and you can’t find the configs… really strange.

However logs are at /var/log normally, also on Ubuntu.

Thank you very much! I think I found, what I looked for and got it only running, when needed! :))

Sorry, by “DE” I meant Development Environment and was talking about the “comfort” of having all in one folder.

But I love Manjaro and all it comes with! IMO best Desktop Environment :slight_smile:

You’re confused again, DE stands for Desktop Environment, usually, and Manjaro is not a Desktop Environment, it is a distribution (with various ISO offering various desktop environments).

Yeah, I’m not 100% sure if “/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf” is the same config I needed a few months ago. Unfortunately I can’t remember what it was and what for. But I can’t find anything else, so it will be it :slight_smile:

Thanks anyway for your input :slight_smile:
