Forgive me for another naive question. How do I make my server start automatically on PC boot? I'm expecting some power outages tomorrow but wont be around to log in and start the server every time it goes down.

Im pretty sure I have mcmyadmin 2 installed as a service, I think, how do I check?

Thank you for your help.

I'm still trying to figure this out. So far I have learned how to setup services to start automatically. However I do not see a service for mcma, is this because I'm starting mcma with McMyAdmin.exe? Does that prevent it from starting as a service? I'm feeling dumber than a box of rocks trying to figure this out. I should also mention this is on windows 10.

If you selected the "Install as service" option during installation then you can use the Services control panel built into Windows to change its startup mode.

What is it titled as in the service control panel? I checked multiple times and couldn't find it. I really thought I selected that box on install. Did I break it by starting it with the mcmyadmin.exe? How do I start it as a server manually? In the service panel as well? Thanks for the help.

How do I start it as a service manually* sorry typo.

If it's not in the services control panel as "McMyAdmin" then you need to re-run the setup.

I'm starting to think my install had a error after reviewing the install logs. Maybe I don't understand so I posted them below.

The service already exists it says there, so you're not looking properly in the services control panel.

McMyAdmin service isnt showing in my service control panel. Really confused as I have checked a dozen times. Probably going to re-install it yet again to see if it pops up. If I doesn't then something is preventing it, while probably user error I still will have to figure it out. Maybe its because I set the location of the MCMA files to another drive during install? I'm really not sure.

EDIT: I just read the MCMA Service Readme.txt and think it might be the correct fix to my issue. Ill try it when no one is playing,
