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
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.
