    Exclamation Apache not working on Windows? READ THIS!


    There is several issues with running apache on windows. Before posting here, please make sure you read the page linked below.

    From the apache website:
    Windows XP Apache Users Read This First

    If you will install Apache on Windows XP, you must install the Windows XP Service Pack 1. [...]
    Further problems described there include:
    - Windows 95
    - ZoneAlarm and other software firewalls

    Read the full text here: http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/bin...DME.html#xpbug

    Update:
    Some problems with Apache 2.0 and Windows can be resolved by setting a special flag in your httpd.conf:
    http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod...isableacceptex
    (Thanks to rahoolio for pointing this out)

    i'm using sp1, za, latest version firewall, and norton sys suite 2k4 and even with all of those other services turned off, with a fresh boot, i can only access site via localhost, or by external ip and internal ip (i use my web server pc as a proxy, no ics, but am using 2 nic, one to modem, other to hub until i can buy a router)all the pc's behing the web server's firewall can access the site, even using my dynamic redirector, but remote pc's get page not found. I have a irc script running a generic web server on same pc, and even with all regular services running it worked with no more extra configuration that apache. allow internet access, allow server. Please help, but i will try by disabling the QoS service when i get home today and have friend test it again. Oh, and does the server running apache have to be pingable, cause i set up za on all pc's to block icmp messages.

    Make sure an entry for localhost and 127.0.0.1 is in your hosts file. When the issue is unrelated to this thread, start your own.

    *** Solution ***


    If this discussion is referring to the problem of apache conflicting with McAffee virus scan, and u get a lot of messages like this in ur error log:

    [Sat Apr 03 10:54:56 2004] [error] (OS 10038)An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket. : Child 1940: Encountered too many errors accepting client connections. Possible causes: dynamic address renewal, or incompatible VPN or firewall software. Try using the Win32DisableAcceptEx directive.

    then see my post here:

    I'm having a massive problem on W2K3 using Apache with mod_ssl (I'm using the OpenSA bundle). Everything was working fine on http: but now I'm trying to run through https:, POST won't work. I can connect to https://localhost/, PHP runs and displays the login screen, but the form data just will not POST. GET works fine. Does anyone have ANY idea what's going wrong ?

    I ran Apache 2 - PHP 5 - MySQL Beta - ModSSL on Windows XP Professional W/ SP2 and had no problems with MCAFEE and getting Apache to run. You just need to tell MCafee to let Apache act as a server !

    EasyPHP


    The easiest way to get PHP, Apache, and MySQL running on your Windows 9x/XP machine is to use EasyPHP 1.8. It looks like it's in French but the program is in English and French, so don't worry about that.

    I use IndigoPerl, it is Apache, PHP, and Perl built into one. Once installed you can always upgrade PHP.

    i heard there are a few issues with running Apache 2.x and PHP 5 on windows. is this for real and do these issues still remain or have they been ironed out. I am about to start this nice medium size project and it needs to run on Windows/apache/mysql/php
    Any known issues with this ?

    not asking for anything specific.. just in general. thanks

    ps: mods i did not know whether to start a new thread or not. sorry if i posted in the wrong place.

    Hello,
    I'm running Apache 2 with PHP5 on WinXP Home (for development) and have never had a problem.

    Do I need to register a domain name before I install Apache?


    I have downloaded Apache for the Windows operating system and have read the installation documentation and I have a question: Do I need to register a domain name before I install Apache?

    I am getting Apache, by the way, so that I can:
    1. Edit and debug PHP without having to upload to a sever constantly.
    2. I can use Source Safe on my home computer. This is a somewhat long story. But, basically, Source Safe requires either IIS or Apache and IIS does not exist for Windows XP Home Edition.


    Anyway, in the installation documentation for Apache, it reads:
    Run the Apache .msi file you downloaded above. The installation will ask you for these things:

    1. Network Domain. Enter the DNS domain in which your server is or will be registered in. For example, if your server's full DNS name is server.mydomain.net, you would type mydomain.net here.
    Do I need to register a domain name before I install Apache?
