Start MAMP at login without password request
Authored by: kainewynd2 on Apr 25, '10 07:29:53AM

It occurs to me that you could use Lingon to make a "Users Daemon" that starts as root at startup without any password embedding. Just make a shell script like so:

#!/bin/bash

# Start MAMP Web Server
/Applications/MAMP/bin/startApache.sh

# Start MAMP MySQL Server
/Applications/MAMP/bin/startmySQL.sh

Put it someplace on your system (I like /usr/local/bin), make it executable (chmod a+x /path/to/file) and make a launchd item with Lingon that uses that script and starts when the computer loads. Everything should start up beautifully.

I haven't tested this...
