Uniform Server 3.5-Apollo known bugs or issues.


Bug fix: reinstate %2

File: Server_Start.bat
Location: *\Uniform Server

Problem: Parameter %2 is not checked, preventing disk_start.vbs running correctly. Redundant %3 parameter! Solution: Reinstate %2 checking and use %3 to open a command line prompt.

The third parameter %3 (Console) seems to be redundant; no idea what its original purpose was. When run, it just leaves the command prompt open, which is of little use.

Proposal: let this open a command prompt accessing the MySQL bin folder will allow command line control of the MySQL server using mysql.exe and mysqladmin.exe. I have taken the opportunity to add comments, cleaned-up the script and changed order of commands slightly.

Enhancement: Enclose batch commands between pushd %~dp0 and popd forces current working directory to the folder a batch file is located in. On completion restores original calling working directory. Allows remote processes to start servers.

Proposed changes:

rem Name: Server_Start.bat
rem Location: Uniform Server
rem Created By: The Uniform Server Development Team
rem Edited Last By: Olajide Olaolorun (empirex)
rem Comment: After start, go to apanel directly.
rem To Developers: Implemented %www%, and %apanel% :)
rem Proposed mods MPG 14-4-2008
rem Proposed enhancement MPG 3-7-08

@echo off
rem working directory current folder 
pushd %~dp0

rem  Command line parameters:
rem  Server_Start.bat %1 %2 %3
rem  %1 = Drive letter to use
rem  %2 = mysql (run MySql server) or nomysql (do not run MySql server)
rem  %3 = console (Open a command prompt at folder MySQL Bin)
rem Note: If using %2 you must set a value for %1
rem Note: If using %3 you must set values for %1 and %2
rem Note: Default, uses drive W, runs the MySQL server and does not a command prompt.

rem ### Is Apache running if it is jump to STARTED 
rem ### First check for system error jump to Pause allows error message to be displayed.
udrive\home\admin\program\pskill.exe Apache.exe
if errorlevel 2 goto :PAUSE
if not errorlevel 1 goto :STARTED

rem ### Apache not running. Check for drive letter if not set (%1) use default.
set Disk=%1
if "%Disk%"=="" set Disk=w

rem ### Create the virtual disk, if it fails go to Hint
subst %Disk%: "udrive"
if errorlevel 1 goto :HINT

rem ### Drive was created. Create variables for paths and programs 
set apachepath=\usr\local\apache2\
set apacheit=%Disk%:%apachepath%bin\Apache.exe -f %apachepath%conf\httpd.conf -d %apachepath%.
set programit=%Disk%:\home\admin\program\
set closeit=%programit%close.bat %Disk%

rem ### Change path to PHP - Required for running scripts
cd \usr\local\php

rem ### Provide feedback to user
echo The server is working on the disk %Disk%:\ [http/]

rem ### Start Apache server
start %programit%uniserv.exe "%apacheit%" "%closeit%"

rem ### Start Apanel

rem ### Start MySQL server - skip if requested not to start (%2)
if "%2"=="nomysql" goto :NOMYSQL
start \usr\local\mysql\bin\mysqld-opt.exe --defaults-file=/usr/local/mysql/bin/my-small.cnf

rem ### Does user want to run a command prompt, if not END 
if "%3"=="console" goto :CONSOLE
goto :END

rem ### User wants to run a command prompt. Opens in MySQL bin
rem ### Allows command clients to be used (musql.exe and mysqladmin.exe ) 
cd \usr\local\mysql\bin
