Title: Cannot get anything to work localhost
Post by: StarUK on May 29, 2007, 11:48:06 PM
I have downloaded and followed the default installation. nothing happens when I try to access localhost

I have unistalled it using the uninstall file then done a fresh install still the same

I am using windows Vista Ultimate

I tried to install this on my old comp windows XP (sp2) and I get to the Web-Developer Contorller and it says :- 

Srevice                 Status               Setup Type
Apache2.2           Error(1)              Automatic

how can I get this to work please.

The contents of \www\Apache22\logs\error.log would be helpful.

Run cmd.exe, and type in...
httpd -t
net start Apache2.2

What does it return?

Here is my screen shot

I know they are all installed as I followed your installation program. I have even down loaded another Web-Developer Suite Command box that was suggested in another post?

Sounds like a conflict with your system. Are you log in as administrator? Do you have anti-virus or firewall s/w installed?

I am the only user on this computer so I am admin and my firewall is configured to accept Web_Dev Contoller and all the programs used by it. Still cannot get it to run

See if anything is listening on port 80... netstat -an

Yes it seems to be listening to port 80 but I am not too sure as I am only just starting to learn php and CS3 Dreamweaver

If Apache is not running, and something is listening on port 80, than that is the problem... You already have IIS, or some other instance of Apache installed.

Apache is running I get the apache installed successfully page and can see info.php page but I cannot get anything else to work and the web-dev controller still says nothing is installed.

I have even unplug the internet so I could turn off my firewall and still nothing

I thought you said nothing works and apache does not start?

BTW, there is no Apache installed successfully page with our setup... You are running another instance of Apache that is not ours. Check 'services.msc' for the Apache service name and see where its pointing.

?

Make sure you do not have another instance of Apache, or IIS, or any other web server that binds to port 80 installed and running.
