A Weird Newbie Question

Postby arixion » 07. December 2008 19:22

Alright, I know this sounds a little bit weird, but how do I stop XAMPP (Apache) from starting at system startup? I don't like it running as a phantom service, since web design is only a hobby, and I use my computer for other things too. Unsurprisingly, the web server slows up my computer's general loading time. I use XP Home SP2.

Go to your XAMPP Control Panel (XCP) and un-check the Svc box next to Apache and MySQL and any other you don't want to start as a (S)er(v)i(c)e - also un-check any ticked boxes in the Service... button item.

If that fails then use the bat files (right click on the bat file and run as administrator):
