    I have just installed mysql and Apache on win 95 & 98.

    On both machines when starting Apache a dos window appears and then disappears1
    Does anyone have the solution.

    The only change I have made to the installed programme Apache 1-3-12-win32 is to change servername to localhost.

    Your assistance greatly appreciated Pete

    If you start Apache from the start menu it will open a DOS window, start apache and then close the window. Until you get more familiar with Apache I suggest you open a DOS window yourself, CD to the Apache directory and then enter apache. This will start the web server and if the startup fails it will give you a hint as to what went wrong.

    Once apache starts don't close the window, because that will kill apache and when you restart it, apache will complain about a previous system failure. To stop the webserver use Stop Apache from the start menu. When the server exits you'll get a DOS prompt back in the DOS window used to start Apache.

    Hope this helps.
