    Finding Executable file that starts Apache Macbook XAMPP


    Hi;

    In brief, I want to see how I can start XAMPP (How can I find the bin directory of XAMPP?).

    My questions:

    1 - Are XAMPP's structure and commands the same on every machine? I am on Macbook Pro. Since it's XAMPP, I assume it should be the same.

    2 - This is the opportunity to learn something about bin directory. I assume bin directory is the directory with executable files. Meaning I can execute a file with this command:
    Code:
    # /some_directory/bin/an_executable_file
    Executes an_executable_file (if it is a script).

    So my goal is to find the bin directory of XAMPP and then I can find the commands to start, stop and restart Apache.

    How can I find the bin directory of XAMPP?

    I already answered this question HERE if you would bother to go to the apachefriends.org site to THIS Link and read about it.
    also, right below that section that I linked to is a section that tells you where everything in XAMPP is located. [where the bin directory is located]
