I think you will find that the vast majority of people using Apache 
are not doing so on the Windows platform. Most people who have 
committed to the Windows platform have also committed to IIS. Apache 
dominates the Linux environment and is used frequently on BSD and 
similar Unix-based platforms. Apache holds only a tiny share of 
Windows servers.

I believe that those few who are using Apache on Windows tend to be 
hobbyists or developers using it to serve their own stuff or to do 
development off-line. I am willing to bet there are very few people 
using it in a production environment under Windows.

So it is entirely possible that there may be nobody on this list who 
has an answer for you. The set of people using it in the same manner 
you are is small to begin with and there may not be many of them 
subscribed to this list.
