Subject Re: [users@httpd] Problems Installing/Uninstalling Apache 2 as a Service
Date Sun, 06 Feb 2005 10:01:36 GMT
Hi,

Windows Services in general are not easy to install; you need to manipulate
the registry.
The good news, though, is that Apache 2 provides a built-in way to get rid
of obsolete Apache services: just call Apache.exe from a command prompt
using the parameter -k uninstall [service name].

Regards
Sascha
