Start and Stop XAMPP in Windows using Command Prompt (CMD)

Start and Stop XAMPP in Windows with Command Prompt (CMD)

What's XAMPP?

XAMPP is a free and open source cross-platform web server solution stack package developed by Apache Friends, consisting mainly of the Apache HTTP Server, MariaDB database, and interpreters for scripts written in the PHP and Perl programming languages. XAMPP stands for Cross-Platform (X), Apache (A), MariaDB (M), PHP (P) and Perl (P). It is a simple, lightweight Apache distribution that makes it extremely easy for developers to create a local web server for testing and deployment purposes. Everything needed to set up a web server – server application (Apache), database (MariaDB), and scripting language (PHP) – is included in an extractable file. XAMPP is also cross-platform, which means it works equally well on Linux, Mac and Windows. Since most actual web server deployments use the same components as XAMPP, it makes transitioning from a local test server to a live server extremely easy as well.

At this time I'll show you how to start XAMPP in fast and simple way. That's using Command Prompt or commonly called CMD.

How to start and stop XAMPP in Windows using Command Prompt (CMD)?
1. Open Command Prompt
Press Windows + R key >> type cmd >> press Enter
