Apache 2.0 on Windows XP

lyarlyar Member Posts: 3
OK I loaded Apache 2.0 on Windows XP, but I downloaded in the .MSI install build instead of using MSVC 6.0 to make the APACHE exe. I am having problems just getting it to work. I went through the whole installation process and put localhost for DOMAIN and SERVER NAME. When the installation was complete I figured I would type "http://localhost" on my web-brower on another machine and it was unsuccessful.

Here is my setup: DSL service w/ 5 static IP's and 1 DNS IP. 2 PC's hooked up to the web w/ a switch using 2 of the 5 IP's given to me. One machine I am, using for web hosting. Is my apache configured wrong still or maybe it is trying to log in, but my paths are wrong in the httpd.conf file.

Thanks

    Hi,

    Do you get any error messages when you start Apache? Or does it say it's running OK? Also, have you tried:-

    http://127.0.0.1/

    From your web browser? And is it bound to the right port (80)?

    : Thanks for the reply. It seems like it is running OK because I start it from the SYS TRAY and I can start and stop it OK. Is the DOS WINDOW supposed to be OPEN all the time when it is running OK. I keep reading that when you start APACHE the DOS window stays OPEN all the time. My DOS window opens real fast then clears

    Yeah, it should stay open all the time. When it closes real fast it'll be printing an error message and then closing. So you need to open the console, then run Apache to see what the error is and rectify it.

    I'm using windowsXP and experience the same problem. The program runs fine but when I tried to access the localhost, there is no connection. When I looked a "Services" windows, I noticed that ONLY "WebClient" service has "Stopping" status. Also, there is no way to change its status! (Not that I know of). Maybe this is a problem?

    I'm wondering if other people also has this same status.

    Have you tried running it from the console? Do you know that your httpd.conf is valid? Thats a place to start. Try signalling apache from the command line:-

    apache -k restart

    (I think...it's been a while since I did this on Windows!) Does it say that it was restarted or does it give an error about bad config files?

    Just a few random thoughts... :-)
