I'm curious if there is a way to get rid of that annoying AMPPS window and dock icon, it's running in my menubar so there is no real need for it to be open in the background... When I try to close it, it stops the servers which i don't want so i'm currently stuck with having a pointles window open and another icon in my dock
First i want to give a BIG thanks to softaculous for AMPPS!
I am not 100% sure if this is enough for you, but this is my way to hide the AMPPS Window:
My Setup: OS X 10.9.3 (Mavericks) & AMPPS 2.3
1. Open AMPPS
2. Click the red close Button
-> AMPPS will ask you: "Are you sure you want to quit AMPPS?"
3. press ESC
4. Window is gone but AMPPS is still running. And the window is coming back when you focus the App through CMD+TAB or by clicking the dock icon.
Yes, I realize you can hide it manually. But it still reappears upon every restart and sometimes after making any settings changes, etc. Other Mac applications that have icons in the menubar generally don't launch a window unless you specifically ask for it. It's not a big deal, just an annoyance, but one that seems like it wouldn't be a big deal to take care of.
