won't run

On Thu, Nov 14, 2013 at 3:09 PM, Steven Miller <<>>

I had Apache 2.2.16 running for a few years on my 2008 R2 server without any problems.  I
left for vacation on 10/31 and found that upon my return, beginning that same day (10/31),
the Apache server could not start and a 1067 error was returned.

I guess the 1067 error is that the service exited immediately?  Yes the error appeared (past
tense since following my uninstall of 2.2.16, this error no longer appears) when restarting
the service in services.msc or when performing a httpd.exe at the CLI

Check the Windows event log. The event log shows entries in the System log that state the
same thing "the application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)".  No other information
in these log entries.
See if httpd will run in a console Window (or else write useful error information to the console).
 By console window you mean the CLI/command line interface?  That is how I am attempting to
run httpd.exe as I haven't installed 2.4 yet so there is no Apache service following my uninstall
of 2.2.16.

  I searched the Windows logs and performed some other research including confirmation that
no other web server exists on this server (a "netstat -an" returns no port 80 listener) before
uninstalling 2.2.16 and attempting to install 2.4.  I extracted the .zip to C:\Apache24 and
modified the related PATH statement to reflect this location.  At first when I tried to launch
httpd.exe I saw an error stating MSVCR110.dll is missing.  As I could find it nowhere on the
server's HD I downloaded it to the C:\Apache24\bin folder.  Now when I attempt to launch httpd.exe
or run httpd.exe -k install I get the error "The application was unable to start correctly

IIUC those Microsoft libraries need to be properly installed, and they get found via the registry
instead of the usual DLL search.  You also need to install one that matches the architecture
of your Apache httpd build (32-bit or 64-bit).  I have the x64 VC++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable
installed (have x64 Apache v 2.4) and tried doing a repair of that install - downloading the
most recent VC version and running a repair, and I still get the 0xc000007b error.

I have researched this error but cannot find any information related to Apache.  I see that
the Apache INSTALL.log file references an .msi download (Windows Installer) so I would like
to try installing it using that method.  However I cannot find an .msi download on any of
the Apache download sites listed on<> including the Apache
Lounge.  The application we use the Apache server for, is a network graphing utility called
Cacti.  I have posted on that forum about this issue but I have received no response thus
far.  We have been without this network utilization data, which we need to effectively manage
our network, since 10/31.

Any assistance is MUCH appreciated.

Thank you,
