Uniform Server 3.5-Apollo known bugs or issues.


Bug fix: Pick-up MySQL root password

File: Close.bat
Location: *\Uniform Server\udrive\home\admin\program

Problem: This script shuts down the MySQL server and removes the virtual drive created. When MySQL root password is changed this script fails to pick it up and server remains running.

Solution: Copy MySQL password from file mysql_password into a variable and use that to shut down the server. Note: pushd is required to define a new reference point for Windows (where this script is located), otherwise it will use the location of the calling script. After the script has run, the original location of the calling script is restored by popd.

Changes as shown:
: Name: Close.bat
: Location: *\Uniform Server\udrive\home\admin\program
: Created By: The Uniform Server Development Team
: Original By: Olajide Olaolorun (empirex)

: Comment: Added push and popd to define current working directory.
: This allows the MySQL password to be picked up.
: This password is required to correctly shutdown MySQL server.

@echo off

pushd %~dp0

IF "%Disk%"=="" set Disk=w
