To access the command line for XAMPP on Windows, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open the XAMPP Control Panel by searching for "XAMPP Control" in the Start menu or by navigating to the XAMPP installation directory and running the "xampp-control.exe" file.
  2. In the XAMPP Control Panel, you will see a list of modules such as Apache, MySQL, etc. Click on the "Shell" button for the module that you want to access the command line for. For example, if you want to access the command line for Apache, click the "Shell" button next to Apache.
  3. This will open a command prompt window specifically for that module. You can now type commands and interact with the module's command line interface as needed.


Note: If you're using an older version of XAMPP, you might not have the "Shell" button in the Control Panel. In that case, you can simply open the Command Prompt by pressing Windows Key + R, typing "cmd", and pressing Enter. Then navigate to the XAMPP installation directory using the "cd" command and run the desired command for the respective module. For example, to access the command line for Apache, you would navigate to the Apache directory and run the "httpd" command.
