I have jsut isntalled XMAPP with the latest update for windows, now I wounder how I shall do I have put a password on mysql and used that restrict you could do at the same page.

Now I wounder:
1.) How shall I do to hav a website where everyone shall be able to visit but only the person with right password shall be able to enter the <root>/xmapp/ directory for different edeting of it.

2.) How I put Apache and MySQL as services so they start automaticly when windows starts up.

Edit: 2.) I found out how to isntall apache 2 as a service. I can also say I ranned the file called mysql_installservice.bat but that is giving me error message when trying to install MySQL as a service, the error code is 1067.

Thanks, really need help.

1.) try searching google for "htaccess"
2.) Is MySQl running from the command line?
If so stop it first and then install as service. If not try starting it from the command line. This usually gives you more detailed error messages.
