Hosting files outside the htdocs directory
The document root (web root) directory is located at
/opt/lampp/htdocs/. All files placed in this directory will be processed by the web server.
To host other files on your system with XAMPP, you can configure an alias with apache.
After the installation of Ubuntu 13.04 (2 days ago), I finally decided to try out some softwares. I needed something to cut my favorite song in order to send it to my phone.
If you need an mp3 cutter, Audacity is the perfect tool for this. It has Fade in, Fade out, Bass Trembler and many other plug-ins installed that could be in handy.
