xampp autostart after power failure G4 10.4.11

Postby orionrush » 23. April 2008 15:10

Sorry for any mulitpul post - they seem to have dided some time ago.

Im have the dickens of a time finding an auto start method that works. Im using a G4 loaded with 10.4.11. I was really hoping that the following method would be my silver bullet. But no dice - though the system did correct the permissions on restart so I know that its trying to execute the script. However Im just out of my league so Im not sure what needs to be tweaked. Has anyone else found a method to get xampp to autostart after a powerfailure etc?

Any help would be much appreciated!

tks - sad newbie

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
/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp start

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.

You might drop the "start" from mampp.
-- "Xampp contains the text
/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp start " --

And you might need a-- Requires = ("Network") --only things I can think of. You may not need "Uses".

Description = "Xampp";
Provides = ("Web Server");
Requires = ("Network");
