Hi,

You are facing problem in this step:


Go to a shell, become root, and start the downloaded file as a shell script:

sh xampp-solaris-0.9.sh

right?

What do you get after this on the terminal?

Do you want to install XAMPP? (answer 'no' or press Ctrl+C to abort installation)
[yes] yes
Checking integrity of XAMPP files... (this may take a moment)
/Desktop/xampp-solaris-0.9.sh: /tmp/xampp-md5sum-832: cannot execute

Hi,

/Desktop/xampp-solaris-0.9.sh: /tmp/xampp-md5sum-832: cannot execute
MD5 checksum failed: XAMPP files corrupt.

means that the file you have downloaded is corrupted or its not properly downloaded.

If you getting again and again this error, then the file in the downloading location may be corrupted.

So try another location:

http://www.freewarefiles.com/XAMPP_program_17696.html

or:

http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/jsp/descFile.jsp?url=descAll/xampp_for_solaris


Hope this will help you.
