Subject AW: Changing the default httpd.conf
Date Fri, 29 Jun 2007 08:19:45 GMT
Hi Guenter,

the new scripts works fine. I knew only the older one.
It would be nice to have the choise to install the service or not ;-)
Your script is not in the normal msi file from ASF and the learining
effect to get to know the large httpd.conf is nearly zero.

I understand the httpd.conf better than my girlfriend :-p
But most newbies don't.

I thought I sent you already my VBS script which tries to fix the path, or?

anyway, I've just looked a bit again into it, and fixed some more things...
although the script is certainly far away from beeing perfect - it does at
least in most cases fix the base directory in all conf files:

please give it a try, and check how it works - I expect some probs with
paths containing blanks where I forgot to quote them, but that should be

for testing its a good idea to first save your current conf directory (f.e.
zip it);
then put the script into the bin directory and click it....

greets, Guenter.
