I followed the instructions listed for using lingon to install a launch daemon to start xampp....
I executed the command /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/xampp start

You need to be root to perform this action.
Is there any way to change permissions so it starts using the launch daemon. The command works with sudo, but is there another way? Even when I click the XAMPP controls button to start the server, I have to enter the admin password.
