MS Windows 4.00.1381
IE 4.0 4.72.3110.8 (aka service patch 2)
>Description:
Brand new clean install. I got 1.3.4 off of apache.org and used the setup (typical). No problems
reported. However, it didn't work and I noticed a lot of files .conf in the .tmp directory.
So I moved those over to .conf. When I ran it from the start menu, no log file created. So
I went to DOS prompt. There I got errors on line 93 "serverroot must be a valid directory".
The registry entry was there, and as I played with it I could see that the DOS error message
was reading from the registry. But it wouldn't move to the next error until I put the actual
path in the httpd.conf file. I had the same problem with Document Root "DocumentRoot must
be a directory". My guess is that httpd.conf is not reading the registry entry.
>How-To-Repeat:
Clean install of NT version. Verify that installation completes (no files in .tmp) and that
serverroot and document root can remain "@@serverroot/?" - if so then its unique to my install.
>Fix:
No.
