Apache Wont Start

Hi, Just installed WAMP 5 on Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition but Apache will not run. I have tried to look at the error log but it doesnt exist.

The Start, Stop and Restart services are blank

I have the same problem when I tried to install Apache as a standalone. I uninstalled this version before installing WAMP 5. There is no Skype or IM applications on the server. Although IIS and SQL Server 2000 is installed.

Any help would be appreciated.


PS have stopped IIS services with no luck...
PPS Can you point Apache to a different port as this is only a local server?

I have fixed the problem by unistalling WAMP, disconnecting IIS services then reinstalling WAMP. All working fine now

IIS uses the same port as Apache. You need to make sure IIS is not running, or Apache will not start.

You can easily make Apache listen on a different port by editing the httpd.conf file. The default port used is 80. Other standard http ports are 81 and 8080.

Open httpd.conf and find this line:
Listen 80

To change it to port 81 use:
Listen 81

To change it to port 8080, use:
Listen 8080

Save the file, and start apache.

If that does not work, make sure you firewall allow Apache.
