I know this can be done as i had it on my first install of xampp
i installed xampp and set apache as a svc i also installed MySql as svc and all was good if the machine rebooted at all then all svc started on there own.
Since installing xampp on another machine i cant get MySql to run as a svc so i have to manualy click start
can some one point me to how to run MySql as a svc please
both machines are win 7
i should also point out that i have no other tools installed on this machine just win 7 and xampp and port 80 is free for xampp to use
