Topic : Start APACHE and MYSQL on mac os x boot without admin password


Posted By: clau on January 6, 2014, 7:49 am | Post: 15

I switched from MAMP for some reasons. MAMP allows to start/stop/restart servers without typing the password. I tried also the above solution but it's not very accurate because the GUI became useless. Using AMPPS as a developer I need often to switch the PHP version and restart Apache. But I need to go to console and perform this.

It would be very helpful for developers if AMPPS will be able to start/stop/restart servers without admin password from GUI. Wonder if there's a plan or any progress in this direction.

Any update to this? That response was two years ago but I still have to type my password in every time I start/stop a service or do things like add a domain.

I actually used this post to edit my sudoers list and have AMPPS only ask for the password the first time, on MacOSX:

Hello AMPPS community.  I've spent the last 1+ attempting to get AMPPS to auto start without asking for a password and have failed.  I've edited the sudoers file, created application using appleScript Editor but nothing seems to work.

I just switched from OSX 10.12 to a newer Mac Mini which has High Sierra on it.

Has there been a solution made as of yet ad if so, can someone please let me know about it.
Mac mini (Mid 2011)
macOS High Sierra

Let me know if you need anymore information.
