Is it possible to have Mercury start as a service also, just like Apache and MySQL? I want to create a .bat file that starts up everything and makes XAMPP ready for continuous uninterrupted use.
My .bat file now installs Apache and MySQL as a service and starts up the browser. But I would like to make use of the Mercury SMTP server to have my PHP project be able to send mails out, also.
Alternatively, would there be a way to have some file just start all processes together? Apache, MySQL and Mercury? When my .bat file starts up Apache, it's just sitting there waiting for Apache to close, so that it can't continue to start MySQL, too.
Thanks in advance,
