Subject Re: [users@httpd] Uninstalling apache 2.0.30 from Windows XP

Thanks for your help Jeff.  The trouble is that I can't do step 2.  Windows
just won't uninstall, and I don't know how else I can get rid of Apache.

Paul.

ps I hit the wrong button - I should have said apache 2.0.39.

I'd suggest you to do what I'm doing,

1. copy the whole apache2 folder to c:\ for example.
2. uninstall the apache from add/remove programs.
3. change your conf file to be identical to the configuration. By paths and
spaces.
4. go to c:\apache2\bin folder in dos prompt and type apache -k install
5. start apache2 service.

Subject: [users@httpd] Uninstalling apache 2.0.30 from Windows XP

Hello.

I installed Apache 2.0.39 onto Windows XP the cheats way - by downloading an
msi file & just double-clicking it, and it worked fine.

But now I'm trying to link it to Tomcat, & I'm having trouble. I'd like to
reinstall Apache (to remove the spaces in the path name), but windows won't
let me. It gives me the error message that "The feature you are trying to
use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click OK to try again, or
enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package
'Apache HTTP server 2.0.39.msi' in the box below.

I've tried re-downloading the installation software for Apache, but Windows
still doesn't like it, and gives me the same error message.

Is anyone out there able to tell me how to manually unstall Apache from
Windows XP? - or direct me to any instructions? (I can't install a new
version without uninstalling the old version). (Note that you're dealing
here with someone who hasn't gone around editing registry files before, so
any detailed instructions would be most appreciated).

ps Is there a way to find a windows installation version of Apache that
includes ssl?

Thanks for any assistance.

Paul.
