I'm running the latest version of XAMPP (just downloaded it today) on a Mac, the version number is : 1.7.3-beta1.
I have a query about how the application (GUI that has the stop/start buttons) launches Apache.
I've made some changes to the configuration of the Apache configuration, such as adding two export commands to the bin/envvars file. If a try and run apache using the app I am told 'ServerRoot' must have a value, the value is defined in one of the exports, so the code is basically this but across two files.
- Code: Select all
Now if I run sudo ./bin/apachectl start from the command line apache starts and everything works OK.
Does anyone know why using the GUI doesn't work? I assumed it just ran the apachectl file, or am I wrong.
