As much as I like XAMPP it looks like I'll have to wait a bit to use it. Two hang issues have shown up -- one is somewhat troublesome:
With XAMPP having been started by the "...mapp start" command, I later issued a ...mapp restart" command. Both from the Termial. The Restart command went into an apparent permanent hang after starting ProFTp. I had to hit CNTRL-C to to get the prompt back to the Terminal.
Later I did a shutdown of XAMPP and then did a restart on the computer. This was done twoce. In both cases the machine shut down to a blue screen with the little twirlling pin-wheel and just hung... but would not restart. Each time I had to press the restart button on the machine to get going again.
I suspect I'm the only person seeing this (isn't that the way it always goes? )
But for now I'll have to sit back and await the next release ...bummer it is such a great package!
