When you open the control panel, there are very many options. Primarily, there is a list of the tools you have: Apache, MySql, FileZilla, Mercury, and Tomcat. For each item on that list there are 2 buttons and a checkbox. Click the checkbox corresponding to the item if you want it to be a "service" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_service
). To get up and running, first click the Start
button next to Apache
, and if it then says "Running" highlighted in green, you can press the Admin
button next to it to bring up a welcome screen. From there you can explore many options.
Hope this helps
