We are glad to announce the availability of the beta version of a tool that will make working with open source web applications and servers even easier than it was before.
The BitNami Control Panel is a (very) simple graphical interface that can start and stop the BitNami servers that are located in the same installation directory.
Take into account that this is a beta version, and currently only available for OS X users. It is included in the new MAMPStack and MAPPStack versions that have been released today. To start the utility, double click the file named ‘control’ from your file browser.
The use of the tool is pretty easy. There are buttons to start, stop and restart each server at a time or all the servers at once. Also, you can find a text box showing the result of the commands introduced.
Thanks BitNami, this tool is absolutely wonderful for us Mac users! I have a small request for the next version of the control app. Upon opening the app, can you give an option to automatically modulate its state between on and off, so if its already off it will auto turn on and vis-versa? And perhaps another option to make the app auto-quit itself when its finished? This would be nifty little features that would make the app more polished and practically transparent. Love you guys!!!
