A new launch control for XAMPP and XAMPPlite (DTX.exe) is available for testing at http://zedfiles.com/DTX/ The control is part of the DeskTopXampp project and is being developed by the ZedFiles Project in collaboration with Nat32 and Apache Friends. It will be released as Open Source once testing is completed.
The primary feature is the support of 'alternative porting' of both Apache and MySQL to avoid conflicts with existing sessions and to allow 'concurrent sessions' for testing or multiple configurations. These are important issues for developers and the PortableApps community.
The DeskTopXampp project will not roll out until later this summer but I thought that making this app available for testing now was timely.
