Subject RE: [users@httpd] Apache on WinXP won't startup - FIXED
Date Fri, 12 Aug 2005 16:44:52 GMT
Hi everyone
 
Thanks so much for all your help, it's now working - I followed all your steps and so managed
to get a helpful error message - I had left the # sign in for my extra LoadModule line for
PHP in the httpd file (because I'd copied the line above).
 
But is there anything I need to do to tidy up the installation because it sounds like my files
are a bit different to most people's.
 
Thanks again
 
Suzy

Please see below for a copy of what I did.  Is this right? ok, 
 
You don't have apache.exe in your bin folder.  You said that apache was in services.  Go into
services and right-click on the apache service.  Go to properties and it should show the "path
to executable:"  Mine looks like this <   "D:\WebCore2\Apache2\bin\Apache.exe" -k runservice
  >
See where the service is tryin to go to start the service.  Then go to that directory and
run the apache -k stop  & apache -k start.

Are you sure you were in the apache/bin directory when you did this?
Do a directory listing and show us the results.

Also check the event log for apache service errors.
