Subject [PATCH] 2.2/platform/windows - command name 'apache' to 'httpd'
Date Sun, 24 Sep 2006 06:04:32 GMT

I've attached (what I hope is) a patch made with Subversion, following the instructions at

Is this a typo, or am I crazy?

Thanks and have a nice day,

P.S. I appreciate your patience while I'm adapting to your customs. Derp.
