|Have just been playing about with this - I can stop/start/restart the MySQL service using the Ampps Control Center, but Apache refuses to respond to the buttons in the Control Center.

I used this method of starting both MySQL and Apache as services at the CMD prompt (started with Administrator privileges)
"d:\ampps\apache\bin\httpd.exe" -k install
The only down side to doing it this way is that I don't seem to be able to use the AMPPS Control Center to restart the services - you have to go into the Services in Control Panel to do this.
I have written a windows batch file which is on my desktop to do the job for me:-
Save this as apache_stop.bat
d:\ampps\apache\bin\httpd.exe -k stop
Save this as apache_start.bat
d:\ampps\apache\bin\httpd.exe -k start
Save this as apache_restart.bat
d:\ampps\apache\bin\httpd.exe -k restart
As with the previous post, to execute these files, you need to right click and "Run as Administrator"
Hope this helps.
If it ain't broke...... Fix it until it is!
