    Apache 2 on WinXP Pro: No installed service named "Apache2".


    I get this error when I try to run Apache after installation:

    [Tue Feb 17 11:52:34 2004] [error] (OS 2)The system cannot find the file specified. : No installed service named "Apache2".

    I've never come accross this before and on my WinXP Home machine there isn't a problem. I am using the latest Apache (apache_2.0.48-win32-x86-no_ssl) but I haven't updated the OS with windows update because it's not my machine.

    Any ideas?

    It is likely that somewhere in the installation, there was a problem and the service was not installed or disabled.

    First, check under Services and see if Apache Service is installed and running.

    If it is not installed, manually install it from Command Prompt:
    Adjust the address to suit
    Code:
    "C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\bin\apache" -k install -n "Apache2"

    Good luck

    I believe the reason for this is because IIS is using port 80 already ... so apache does not install the service because 80 is already being used.

    What is your OS?
    Is there another server running, like IIS?

    Sometimes it is easier to uninstall and install again.

    Good luck

    Well, I have windows xp and I installed apache_2.0.49-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi on it.
    About the reinstalling, I did it. It didnt help.
    If the IIS is Internet Information Server, how can I disable it and does is influence my internet connection?

    Ths, T.

    P.s. Im connected to a LAN

    What is your OS? Which windows?

    Paste/attach a copy of httpd.conf to check.

    Good luck

    Thx for responding

    This msg I get after installing the server:
    (OS 10048)Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted. : make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80
    no listening sockets available, shutting down
    Unable to open logs
    Note the errors or messages above, and press the <ESC> key to exit. 10...

    The file is too long... I cant includ it here...
    so, I put it on my server here

    Ya, I have WinXP

    P.s. Thx for helping

    I didn't notice any problems in the httpd.conf

    Check under Services in XP to see if Apache service is installed.
    If not installed, try above mentioned form command line.

    If there is still problem, then sockets are occupied by another application.

    Typical examples are another server or some firewalls.

    Disable firewalls and try again.

    Also from command line try and check:
    netstat -a

    Good luck
