what does xampp-shell in CP do?

Postby tcloud » 05. January 2012 15:41

I'm running XAMPP 1.7.7 under Win 7 64-bit and all is working well. I'm helping another person set it up on their system and realize I don't know what some of the things on the Control Panel do -- especially XAMPP-Shell button.

I am running XAMPP as 'Method B: The ZIP & 7zip versions" and the instructions say to NOT run the batch files, and I'm wondering if clicking the XAMPP-Shell button will cause any problems ... or what it does.

thanks,
Tom

It opens a 'cmd' Command Shell (DOS Prompt) at the root of your XAMPP installation with a correctly set environment for working with a Command Line Interface (including a temporary Path).

With the newer Control Panel, the xampp_shell.bat will be created the first time you open the XAMPP Shell.

The file (xampp_Shell.bat) that runs the Command Shell will be in the root of XAMPP, so if you want - you can open it with an editor and see what it does. :)

Good Luck
