Subject Re: os-windows/7410: Documentation regarding Win32 Apache Server service installation is incorrect
Date Tue, 25 Sep 2001 05:21:18 GMT
I'm not sure what all I might be able to offer but I run Apache 1.3.20 on
Win98 and had no problem installing as a sevice, running virtualhost, cgi
script, etc. The only glitch has been an inability to prevent users from
downloading files from the cgi-bin. I rarely resort to the docs until I have
a particular problem but I presume you are speaking of "win_service.html".
I've never dealt with cvs before but if I understand right your referring to
the fact that when installed as a sevice it does so for all users and not
just the current user. The docs deal with issues of user accounts for
NT/2000 under the paragraph heading "User Account for Apache Service to Run
As (NT/2000)". It would seem to be a simple matter to change this behavior
manually by logging on as the user you want Apache running on, deleteing the
service startup from
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices\"
and adding it to
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\", at least
on Win98. If this is what you are refering to I can test it and write an
addendum for "win_service.html" detailing the proceedure for various
winboxes. If my work is satisfactory I am willing to consider other projects
along these lines.
