           Summary: Apache server does not get installed correctly under
                    Windows Vista
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.3-HEAD
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW

The server does not correctly get installed under Windows Vista.
It is possible to run it but configuration of it is a tough issue.

Apache keeps all the configuration information under Program Files directory. In
Vista the Program Files directory is protected, only processes with
administrative privileges can write under it.
My guess is part of installation is happening in processes that do not have
administrative privilege and the configuration files do not get populated
correctly. The httpd.conf stay with unprocessed tokens.

I think the whole installation procedure and the method of storing and using
configuration files and data must be overhauled for Vista. Configration should
be stored under C:\Program Data\Apache Software Foundation\ApacheServer folder
which would be accessible to apache running as restricted application or app
with admin privileges. The Apache installation as service would also use this
directory. Otherwise it's a nightmare to modify the configuration manually.

In other words, Apache is not exactly Vista-compatible.
