XAMPP Hyperkit - Start Processes from Terminal

Postby jcrystal44 » 15. December 2020 03:09

Hello all.

I'm looking to start my XAMPP instance (and associated services) from the terminal, rather than the Launcher GUI. This opens up options for automating various processes.

By looking at process logs, I was able to determine that this is what is being run when XAMPP starts:
Code: Select all
sudo /Users/username/.bitnami/stackman/helpers/hyperkit -A -H -U ED35CC5E-89C8-41EF-BEDF-2602883D6B51 -c 1 -m 1024M -s 0:0,hostbridge -s 31,lpc -l "com1,autopty=/Users/username/.bitnami/stackman/machines/xampp/tmp/tty,log=/Users/username/.bitnami/stackman/machines/xampp/log/boot.log" -s 2:0,virtio-net -F /Users/username/.bitnami/stackman/machines/xampp/tmp/machine.pid -s "4:0,virtio-blk,file:///Users/username/.bitnami/stackman/machines/xampp/vm/machine.qcow2?sync=os&buffered=1,format=qcow,qcow-config=discard=true;compact_after_unmaps=0;keep_erased=0;runtime_asserts=false" -f "kexec,/Users/username/.bitnami/stackman/machines/xampp/vm/vmlinuz,/Users/username/.bitnami/stackman/machines/xampp/vm/initrd.img,earlyprintk=serial" console=ttyS0 root=/dev/vda1


When I run that externally, I get in stdout:
Code: Select all
mirage_block_open: block_config = file:///Users/username/.bitnami/stackman/machines/xampp/vm/machine.qcow2?sync=os&buffered=1 and qcow_config = discard=true;compact_after_unmaps=0;keep_erased=0;runtime_asserts=false and stats_config = None

The 1 big issue is that it doesn't seem to be actually booting the image? Or, at least, I'm not able to determine what IP address the running image has. In the Launcher, it (eventually) indicates an IP in the 192.168.64.x-range. This does not seem to actually activate the network interface on the VM (nor the SSH, MySQL, or Apache services).

Any idea how to get those to run too? Something tells me it's about sending some serial data to /Users/username/.bitnami/stackman/machines/xampp/tmp/tty in some way, but could use some guidance/confirmation. Or, perhaps, it's about writing additional startup info onto the VM (perhaps while it's booted using the Launcher GUI?).

Thanks!

XAMPP version: 7.4.5
Operating System: OS X 10.15.3

Why dont you simply get yourself an used PC from Ebay (mostly any 50$ thing will do it), put a linux distro on it (Linux Mint for example) and finally install and run Xampp on it? That makes life so much easier, you will get the same linux environment as on your MacOS PC, but you dont struggle with VirtualMachines, you dont waste RAM and ROM from your sophisticated OSX machine and you get a real webserver environment?

Finally you can start and stop Xampp quickly and easily on the linux machine, you can set and also retrieve the (W)LAN IP of the Xampp PC easily and all your troubles will disappear. There are plenty of used PCs on Ebay that will do the job.
