In this step also there is SERVICE SECTION, this option will be used if you want your apache, mysql, or filezilla automatically run in startup. If you want some of the service run on start up, you can tick it. In the picture below I didn't tick it, because I will run manually everytime I need the service. When finish, click next and start the installation.
