I tried to install XAMPP to opt directory using this command:

sudo tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.8.0.tar.gz -C /opt

But, there is no folder there named /opt when I searched for this folder, there was a folder named /opt under /etc and another folder under /inode. So, where I can install XAMPP now - in the etc/opt/ or to create a directory named /opt in Home?

Just create opt folder and install in it

 sudo mkdir /opt

and then

 sudo tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.8.0.tar.gz -C /opt


It holds optional software and packages that you install that are not required for the system to run.

Opt is reserved for additional software you install; although, most providers don’t use it. This is kind of like ‘Program Files‘ for linux.
