Love this. A must for web developers. Never could get MAMP to really include my ssi. XAMPP includes just fine (assuming you name your pages with includes shtml) where most browsers don't require this. A wonderful addition to my work flow.

Wondering:

Is this automatically being turned on once the computer has restarted, or do I have to sudo su and then /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp start each time?

Way better than MAMP. Its updated more often and the command line interface is amazing. I hated the MAMP GUI which does not even have a restart button.

If you want a pretty GUI and a Dashboard widget, get MAMPP. If you want more features and libraries built-in, get XAMPP :)
