Coral: start run as service
Run as a service
Folder UniServer contains a file Start_as_service.exe which opens the server control menu UniController. This menu allows you to install and run The Uniform Server as a service.
When using this menu, you install the servers as services; it adds data to your operating system’s registry. The dvantages of running as a service, when you restart your PC, servers’ will automatically re-start. You can install and run services from a USB memory stick however, you must remember to stop and uninstall services before removing your USB stick.
NOTE: For Vista and Win7, admin privileges are required. To run as administrator, right click on Start_as_service.exe and click Properties and then choose run as administrator.
The server control menus are interlinked; this prevents you running both menus at the same time. If you have a single server Apache or MySQL running as a service and close the “run as a service” menu and then open the “run as a program menu”, you will find its corresponding server buttons are greyed out.
Similarly the reverse is true. A single server Apache or MySQL running as a program will have its corresponding server buttons greyed out in the “run as a service menu”
This interlinking applies when running multi-servers; the first server started (Apache or MySQL) will have its corresponding buttons greyed out in all other server menus. This means you can have a single instance of the MySQL server running and have several different Apache servers running, all accessing the one MySQL server.
