Okay, this annoyed me for quite a while, I could start AMPPS on boot but I would have to input my username and password each time, which as you can imagine is very tedious, also, I found the AMPPS window pointless and more of a hassle than useful, sure when I need it, but, most of the time I didn't need it, well I created a small work around, I'm not really sure where to post it but this seemed the right place :)
1. Launch the AppleScript-Editor (search in spotlight, if you don't know where it is)
2. Type in the following code:
do shell script "sudo /Applications/AMPPS/apache/bin/httpd &" password "ADMIN PASSWORD" with administrator privileges
do shell script "/Applications/AMPPS/mysql/bin/mysqld > /dev/null 2>&1 &"
Replace the ADMIN PASSWORD with the systems admin password 3. Save it as a run-onlyapplication 4. Move the file where ever you want.
5. Right click on the application file, you have created, and click on "show package contents"
6. Go to the info.plist file and open this in Textedit (or any other editor)
7. Add these 2 lines of code after the first "<dict>" tag:
8. Save & close
9. Go to System Prefrences>Users>login-items
10. Drag the application file into the list.
11. Open AMPPS and go to the menubar icon>configuration>AMPPS
12. Uncheck "Start on Session Startup." and "Start Apache and MySQL on application startup." (may already be unchecked)
If you followed the steps, everything should work and the apache webserver and mysql will launch on startup without opening the AMPPS windows.
If you experience any problems let me know :)
