Apache often fails to start on XP if UPNP is enabled

           Summary: Apache often fails to start on XP if UPNP is enabled
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.47
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Other
         Component: Platform
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: enosys@netmails.net


Apache 2.0.47 often failed to start properly for me in XP.  The
Apache2 service and Apache.exe processes would be running but
ApacheMonitor would say it's not running and I couldn't access the 
server.  I'd have to stop and then start Apache through ApacheMonitor
to get Apache running properly.  Clicking on restart wouldn't work
like that; I'd need to stop and start.

I finally fixed the problem.  I made the Apache2 service depend on the
universal plug and play services, SSDPSRV and upnphost.  I don't know
if both are necessary and I don't feel like trying to find out.  I've
done about 10 reboots and Apache ran properly every time.  Before it
wouldn't even run properly 1/10 times.

To do this fix add SSDPSRV and upnphost lines to:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Apache2\DependOnService
in the registry.  (use regedit or whatever)

The only problem now is that ApacheMonitor fails to show up in the
system tray.  This also happens if I disable the Apache2 service.
Before it'd almost always be there.  I assume this is yet another
stupid UPNP issue.  If the UPNP services are enabled on XP various
tray icons sometimes dissappear (and I mean disappear, not become
hidden).  This ApacheMonitor problem is therefore a known and unfixed
bug in XP, not an Apache bug, but it would be nice if ApacheMonitor
automatically replaced it's tray icon if it found it missing (due to
this XP bug or an explorer crash or whatever).  Many windows apps do 
this and I find it very helpful.

BTW I strongly recommend disabling or uninstalling universal plug and
play unless you're really sure you need it.  It doesn't even work right
anyways; my internet gateway gets found only half the time.
