Subject Re: [users@httpd] Automatically Starting Apache
Date Mon, 20 Oct 2003 21:33:30 GMT
What you say ("Apache will not start if the network connections have not
been established") makes sense... except that up until recently it was
working fine! (Please don't ask me to go back and uninstall whatever Win XP
updates or other programs I have installed since that time... because I
don't have a clue as to when it was running properly and I load on new
software or do updates very often!!)

My router does the DSL hookup so my sytem is always-on. What I don't know is
does my computer try to start the Apache Service prior to handshaking with
the router? How can I even determine what order this happens in? Another
related question... What caused Apache to be set up as a Service in the
first place? Is there some kind of config parameter that does this?
