Starting up Apache with Windows XP?

Recommended Posts

How can I make Apache start automatically once I login WinXP? I figure it has something to do with Regedit,but I know better then to mess around with it. Does anyone know how I can get Apache to auto-start, or point me to where I can learn how to get it to auto-start?

If u already have Apache installed and u just want the service to start in XP, do this:


Right click "My Computer" icon on desktop

Click "Manage"

At the bottom of the list in the left view panel click the "+" next to "Services and Applications".

Click on "Services"

Now in the right panel where Windows Services are listed, look for Apache and MySQL.

Right click each one of these, click "Properties", and set startup type as "Automatic".


This does leave your system vulnerable, but u can toggle exceptions in your firewall if u need to.
