Subject Re[2]: [users@httpd] How to run Apache *without* writing to the registry or system drive?
Date Mon, 26 May 2003 01:04:34 GMT
Hello Jeff,

  "Thank you Jeff"

JC> Otherwise run from apache/bin/apache -k start...

I had problems trying to simply run it with -k start (it kept noting no
Apache2 service installed) but thanks to -k install and -k start I got
Apache up with no problems...

Though I have the Apache 2 Bible, I couldn't find that very simple
answer... "apache -k install" and then "apache -k start"... Apache -k
start did not wish to work by itself.

I have one more question before I allow rest to kick in. Where can
I find a definitive list to all of the Apache switches for Windows?

Thanks for getting me started ;)

Best regards,
 Victor B. Gonzalez
