How to make sudo remember my password and how to add an application to startup

I have lampp installed on my Ubuntu 12.04 Everything works very fine and now I would like to start the lampp-server on startup.

I have a script with this:

cd /opt/lampp
sudo ./lampp start

code in it. It is enabled for execution and when I run it in terminal I am asked for the password and finally it starts lampp.

Can I include the password in the script that it runs on startup?

Greetings philipp

Your question is very much similar to How to make sudo remember my password and how to add an application to startup? – Nitin Venkatesh Aug 15 '12 at 10:01

You can edit the rc.local file to auto start lampp.

use root login and edit /etc/rc.local file and add line /opt/lampp/lampp start to end of the file.

Reboot the machine and you can check the status of the lampp using /opt/lampp/lampp status

Hope this helps you!

/etc/rc does not exist. Should I make it? – philipp Aug 15 '12 at 12:04
