I can see several "start" related German topics but unfortunately I do not read German. Wish I did. My German friends are really smart.

I got the script from the German part of the forum.
Be ware that it works on osx 10.3 fine,but has problem
restarting and shutting down on osx 10.4.

make a directoy

mkdir /Library/StartupItems/Xampp/

in the directory you need two files;

file one named
StartupParameters.plist
in there write these three lines

Code: Select all
{
Description   = "Xampp";
}


file two named
Xampp
it is a shell script(make it executable)

Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh
. /etc/rc.common
StartService ()
{
ConsoleMessage "Xampp start"
/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp start
}
StopService ()
{
ConsoleMessage "Xampp stop"
/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp stop
}
Restart ()
{
ConsoleMessage "Xampp restart"
/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp restart
}

RunService "$1"

Thank you. Your suggestion sent me down a path that yield a solution.

It was necessary to expand the StartupParameters.plist to:
{
Description   = "Xampp";
Provides =("Web Server");
Requires =("DirectoryServices");
Requires =(""Disks", "NFS");
Requires =("Web Server");
OrderPreference ="None";
}

and I had to change

RunService "$1"
to
StartService

... because it locked me out of another program at startup, but it works now.

Why where these statements necessary? - I figured this additional bit out by trial and error, and have no clue why these items were necessary. I could use an education if you or anyone had a moment.

Again my thanks :D
