Which is best?

Good, quick article. I like getting right to the point. My question, however, is how using this method to install Apache differs from that described in a recent article on this site which showed how to install an Apache package that included SSL capabilities. As I re-call, the package was an open-source offering from a company other than the Apache Org. I just want to know if there is anything to consider between the two (other than the SSL module). Thanks in advance for replies.

also....

Almost forgot.

When I install Apache and configure it to serve as my testing server for web applications (I merely have a pc - no seperate box to act as server), what specific steps will I have to take in order to be able to preview applications that utilize ASP, PHP and Perl coding. Yes, hard to believe a web developer doesn't have a clue how to do this, I shamefully admit (guess "Designer" is more appropriate than "Developer"). Nonetheless, I need some hand-holding to do the above. Please help this lazy goof.

the article you are talking about is my article i wrote http://www.devarticles.com/art/1/289


what's the difference between the apache server and the opensa apache server, nothing except that the opensa server makes it easy for you to use ssl and other programming languages on your server without the guesswork and whatnot.


if you plan to use asp on your server than you should consider using the opensa server, i don't know what to reccomend for perl but i am pretty sure other's will chime in and help out.

already went w/ typical

Thanks for the reply. Yes, that's the article I was referring to; I enjoyed it thoroughly, well done.

Being the impatient one that I am, I simply went ahead and installed Apache, PHP, MySQL at the very basic level; per Ben's article written 9-10-02. Now I'm sort of wishing I had opted to go w/ your route, what with the added features. I don't imagine I can go ahead and install opensa on top of what I installed earlier today?

Nonetheless, thanks for your reply and the great article!

if you still want to use apache just uninstall apache and use the other server, but be sure to save your httpd.conf file though if you do plan to do the switch.

Apache on ME

I am trying to install Apache on my home PC but I am having a problem. I am running ME as my OS and Apache won't start. I am assuming that either PWS or IIS is using port 80 but I don't know how to change the port or shut off the server.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Mirrix

sorry it took a while to get back to you but which article did you try?

also if you have pws or iis on your machine there should be an icon in the system tray to where you can disable it, so port 80 can be used by apache.

also another method you can do for apache is to set it at a diffrent port, example http://test-site:81/ in your httpd.conf file change the port from 80 to 81. save that and restart your server and then type this in http://127.0.0.1:81/ and see if that brings you to your homepage.

let me know which article you used so i can help you out.

Apache on ME

I read "The Quick-n-Dirty Guide to Setting Up Apache on Windows" by Steve Adcock.

Currently I am at work, but when I get home this evening I will try changing the port and see what happens.

I don't believe their is a PWS or IIS icon in the system tray.

Thanks for your help. I will keep you updated.

Apache doesn't start

Now I believe when the Apache server is on the little icon on my system tray will turn green. it doesn't it is still red. I changed the port to 81 then tried to start it and that is also a no go.

When you go to programs after you hit the start button and you scroll over to Apache and the window opens to start Apache, I don't have an option to shut Apache down (even if I were to get it started). I assume there should be one there for some reason.

Do you have any ideas?

Can someone post a link to that article mentioned above please.

I tried to install Perl-5.8-win32-bin-0.3.exe, that seemed the right one, i need asp features. Maybe it isnt configured properly, i can see the index.html but nothing to do with asp works

Any help at all would be really appreciated.
