Thanks, I'll try it.

Just out of curiosity, what would happen if I simply
closed the Apache 2 window by clicking the X in the
top right corner, then restarting it when I want to
use it. Would that somehow hurt the program?

I just ran into someone who said that's a legitimate
way to shut it down, but it seems odd after
goes to so much trouble to specify commands for doing
the job.
