  1. Hi Ric, Thanks for the suggestions. I 'knew' that I didn't have Apache loaded as a service but thought I'd look anyway. I found that there WAS an Apache service registered on the system but it had been set to 'manual' startup, so wasn't actually running. It was then that I remembered that I'd toyed around with getting UniServer to run as a service a year or so ago and had failed miserably and set the services to manual to stop them running so that I could get UniServer to run properly. I guess I'd forgotten about that. Anyway, although I didn't expect it to make any difference, I set the startup for the Apache and MySQL services to 'disabled' and now 4.3 starts no problem! What I didn't realise was that 4.3 appears to be set up to run as a service by default, so I guess this is why it was failing: it was conflicting with the services already registered, as they were pointing at old versions of the software. So, problem solved - many thanks. Regards, Paul.
  2. I've been running 3.5 for quite some time now and thought I'd upgrade to 4.3 as some CMS software that I want to use appears to have compatibility issues with 3.5. So I downloaded 4.3 and installed it on my XP machine and it works fine. Having tested it out, I then downloaded 4.3 onto my main server (Vista Home Premium) and installed it alongside the 3.5 installation. I've ended the 3.5 server and rebooted the machine and then tried starting 4.3 only to get a string of errors: I've done nothing to the installation, just trying to run it 'out of the box'. My copy of 3.5 still starts and runs without any problems. Any ideas as to what might be wrong? Cheers, Paul.
  3. Hi Ric, How very strange: yesterday I found the new link and clicked on 'all files' but there was nothing there, but this morning they are! Oh well, at least they're there now. Thanks for your help. Paul.
  4. Hi guys, There are no files on Source Forge under Uniform Server! Did you know? Regards, Paul.
  5. Cheers Ric - that's great, thanks. Paul.
  6. I visited the forum the other week and was very pleased to see an announcement that a new version of UniformServer was out, and I've just returned to download it and now cannot see the announcement or the download. Did I miss something? Cheers, Paul.

    php_imap.dll is missing

    Brilliant! Thanks Ric. I did have a scout around the PHP site looking for this very thing but always ended up at the Downloads page which only contained the latest version! Regards, Paul.

    php_imap.dll is missing

    Hi gang, I'm running some software which needs php_imap.dll, so I've uncommented the line in the PHP.ini file, but I'm getting errors in the log saying that the php_imap.dl cannot be loaded. I've checked in the PHP folders, and it doesn't appear there. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of this tht is compatible with the version of PHP running in Apollo? Many thanks, Paul.
  9. Perfect! It's easy when you know how! Thanks Ric.
  10. Well, I've been playing around with it, and I can get rotatelogs working if I use the line: CustomLog "|w:/usr/local/apache2/bin/rotatelogs.exe w:/usr/local/apache2/logs/access.%Y.%m.%d 86400" combined i.e. specify the explicit path. But this isn't really in-keeping with the spirit of Uniform Server, and I'd like to remove the explicit paths. Can someone tell me what I need to do to do this please? The Apache documentation seems to indicate that my original format should have worked, but it doesn't. Regards, Paul.
  11. I think this is a problem with Vista because I've had the same problems with other zipped software and copying large folders: Vista seems to crap out part way through. I had some software to install, and the unzipped size was about 450MB, and Vista refused to complete the extract, falling over about half way through. So I extracted it on another machine running XP and copied it to the Vista machine. I then found that I couldn't copy the new folder to the required place as, about half way through, it crapped out again. The only way I could find to get around this problem was to access the Vista machine from another machine running XP and do the copy from there. Trying to do the copy in Vista always resulted in an error. Good old MS, eh? Regards, Paul.
  12. Hi gang, I'm trying to get rotatelogs working so that I don't have to shut down the server in order to change the log files, but not having any success. I've tried the following: CustomLog "|bin/rotatelogs logs/access.%Y.%m.%d 86400" combined and CustomLog "|bin/rotatelogs.exe logs/access.%Y.%m.%d 86400" combined and CustomLog "|rotatelogs logs/access.%Y.%m.%d 86400" combined and CustomLog "|rotatelogs.exe logs/access.%Y.%m.%d 86400" combined as well as various logfile names, but nothing: the server refuses to start unless I comment this out and reinstate the previous CustomLog definition. Does anyone here know what I'm doing wrong? I'm using Apollo on Vista Home Premium. Many thanks, Paul.
  13. S'OK - found the problem! I had a script called test.pl which displayed a 'success!' type of message, so Perl is definately OK. Looked at the differences between that and the script I was trying to run and found that the first line was missing '/usr' from the path. Added that and it all works OK now. Thanks for your help guys. Paul.
  14. Thank Olajide, but I was hoping not to set it up as a service in case I wanted to move/rename the folders, hence trying to get it to start with a scheduled task. I'll keep looking to see if I can get it to work, but may end up using services anyway. Cheers, Paul.
  15. Hi there, Did that and I get a 500 - internal server error. Is it broke?
