Subject Re: [users@httpd] Help Installing Apache 2.0 on Win2k machine running IIS
Date Fri, 05 Sep 2003 18:36:59 GMT
You can put anything in during the install process, it won't matter because
you're going to need to edit the httpd.conf file by hand anyways.  ;-)
Usually I just put "localhost" or "127.0.0.1" as the host name (it's used in
the global ServerName directive in httpd.conf), any email address will work
(it just puts it on certain pages like errors or directory Indexes).  Then,
you'd obviously have to change the Listen directive because if IIS is
already bound to (listening on) port 80, Apache will need to be listening
elsewhere.  Then if you want to try testing things like the VirtualHost
configuration, just modify your %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file
and make entries for anything you want.  Win2k (and other OSes by default)
looks at the hosts file first before it consults the DNS.  So it's a
quick-n-dirty way to bypass DNS for your own amusement.

Again, if you run into problems, check your access and error log files,
check http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/ ( or /docs/ if using Apache 1.3.x ),
check your config file (editing it, and with "apache -t", assuming you did
put (INSTALL_LOCATION)\Apache2\bin in your systems' PATH.
