Not autorun Xampp

Postby 0liver » 17. December 2012 03:38

Dear friends,

Pls, I would like to know how I can make Xampp does not autorun when Windows starts. Because I do not see any option in the control panel settings to disable the Autorun.

Thank you very much for your kind support.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

XAMPP itself doesn't run when Windows starts ... however, if you are referring to Apache/MySQL, that's pretty easy. Launch your XAMPP Control Panel and then stop any of the software that's running and has a Green Checkmark beside it. Then simply click the Green Checkmark and it should open a confirmation window asking you to confirm uninstalling it as a service. Click Yes to confirm it and then you can start the software again.

It will need to be manually started each time you want to use it unless you re-install it as a service again.

There is now another option. XAMPP can be configured to auto-start its applications when the Control Panel is started. The Configure Menu allows you to choose to auto-start Apache, MySQL etc - on demand, when you launch teh Control Panel. I love it...

Good Luck

That's pretty cool! So you can quickly launch them without having to install them as a service ... that could be handy! I'm liking the new Control Panel too, it's a very nice improvement. It'd be awesome to have a Virtual Host editor built into the control panel so vhosts can be quickly edited/added accordingly ... even perhaps something like Acrylic DNS Proxy for adding fake domains. Those are a couple of things I often use/need to configure.
