httpd.conf is NOT a script. Its a config file for apache. To start xamp, run
"/opt/lampp/lampp start", and "/opt/lampp/lampp stop" to stop it. This will
launch apache, mysql, and proftpd. To start just apache, run
"/opt/lampp/lampp startapache"

xamp documentation is available at

BTW, if you move to Linux, you have to dig linux quite deep, otherwise once
you run into software trouble, you may get trouble inside your company. Even
1 hour of e-mail outage generates degree of heat equal probably of nuclear
