Apache v2.0.48 on Windows XP Home Ed

rollencerollence Member Posts: 2
I installed Apache and verified that it's running as a service and there are no errors on the error log when the service is started. I can't get to the html test page (http://127.0.0.1) to verify the installation. I don't receive any errors on the browser. The browser just sits there searching for the page.

I'm running Windows XP Home Edition with SP1a (as recommended from the www.apache.org).

Do I need to configure my httpd.conf file?

    If Apache started and is running, I would doubt it was to do with your httpd.conf file. Do you have any firewalls etc running? Check if they are set to allow Apache to run as a server - this could be blocking it.

    Thanks for your prompt response, Jonathan. I'm running McAfee Firewall, but I stopped the firewall service while I was running Apache. Does Apache only work on Windows XP Professional Ed? I've been searching several other messageboards and it seems like some people have successfully installed it on XP Home Ed, but I'm wondering if I need to tweak anything?

    Eliminates that option then...

    Hmmm...maybe you were right on your httpd.conf file problem. Take a look through it - particularly look for any paths in it that may be incorrect. Also try starting Apache from the console - do you get any errors?
