Coral: start run as program
Run as a program
Folder UniServer contains a file Start_as_program.exe which opens the server control menu UniController. This menu allows you to run The Uniform Server as a standard program.
When using this menu, nothing is installed in your operating system’s registry. This is ideal for a development server, especially when running from a USB memory stick, since you do not have to perform anything special to stop or remove the servers.
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.
