thank you for your post and your oppinion...
Though let me explain a couple of things...
XAMPP ist in the Applications folder and _only_ in the Applications folder because that is the philosophy of XAMPP. Everything in one folder without thouching anything of the rest of the system (besides the installer)...
All libraries needed for XAMPP etc are in the /Applications/XAMPP folder!
Alot of the Libraries are also by default on your System but not on every System.
And since MacOS X doesn't really care about backwards compatibility this was the only way we could do it.
For the issue of the installer overwriteing your config, I do have this on my ToDo.
The Startup on Boot problem is that we have up to now not had one single solution that works for all. We need this though. And making it startup on boot, it also requires to change something at the System itself. (which again is not the philosophy of XAMPP)
Following is my very simple implementation
folder called xampp
inside is two files
StartupParameters.plist contains the text
Description = "Xampp";
Provides = ("Web Server");
Uses = ("Disks", "NFS");
Xampp contains the text
The system actually repaired the permissions on these files upon booting, and it works like a charm. Put the folder in Library/StartupItems and it works, pull it out and it stops. Dont have to sudo, or deal with the terminal. And i can use the control panel to restart it as needed.
