Toggling a set of services in Windows from the command lineI work on my
business' Wordpress site on my home PC which emulates our server environment. The stack I'm currently running is
MySQL. These pieces are all registered as services in Windows so that I can turn them off and save resources when I'm not developing.
MySQL registers itself as a service but
php need to be registered manually, which I was able to do with the help of
nssm which is a nice command line interface for creating, starting and stopping services (no more running
I've found that typing
nssm start nginx,
nssm start php,
nssm start mysql is wearing down my sensitive fingers so I added a function to my
.bashrc which looks like the following.
nssm $1 php
nssm $1 nginx
nssm $1 mysql
}If I run this in an Admin
bash prompt then I can start or stop all my services related to my CBB work in one command. Nice!
