can't start uniform server

Recommended Posts

Running on Windows XP, just installed the latest version of uniform server today.

 

I ran the port test, all looks OK.

 

2_Apache_program.bat gives me the following output: (there is no log file generated)

 

The following test checks Apache configuration file syntax

Any errors reported must be corrected.

If syntax check is OK you will see step 2)

 

The system cannot execute the specified program.

 

2) START APACHE

 

Expected results:

 

A blank command window opens with a flashing cursor.

This window remains open indicating the Apache server is running.

Note: You may be challenged by your firewall ALLOW access

 

Do not close windows. Perform the following:

 

Running 1_port_check.bat will show port 80 is now in use

Check server is accessible. Type the following into a browser http://localhost/

 

Uniform Server's index page is displayed

 

Run test by pressing any key. Perform above tests.

So digging further, Apache.exe is in the correct location, but when I try to execute from a command prompt it I get the error that the system cannot execute the specified file.

 

Looking from cygwin command prompt, the file was executable. Maybe it's been corrupted, or doesn't work on Windows XP?

 

$ ls -l Apache.exe

-rwxr-xr-x 1 LCURRENS ???????? 18432 May 24 04:48 Apache.exe

Take note that Apache utilizes port 80. This would conflict with Skype.

 

Just a note :)

Thanks, but not running Skype, not even installed. Port test was OK.

 

It appears that the executable for Apache.exe is not executable (but permissions are OK I think). None of the apached exe files seem to be executable. I am on Windows XP. Is there some problem with the distribution files? Any other ideas?

Are your running as Administrator?

Have you tried disabling UAC in XP?

Let's start from the beginning. I assume you're running Win XP.

First, where did you install UniServer?

Second, did you run "Start.exe"?

That would have made the use of 2_apache_program.bat unnecessary.

Also, look at this: http://wiki.uniformserver.com/index.php/5....Install_and_Run

on Windows7, I found that even if I run START.EXE as Administrator, that doesn't do the trick. I have to run \alternative_control\Service_Install_Run.bat as Administrator to get it to run.

Whoa, wait!

@Glenleslie,

This thread is about a different environment. @ausdev indicates he's running WinXP.

You seem to be referring to problems involved with running the servers as a service under Windows 7.

 

@ausdev,

Just as a clarification, The Uniform Server does not use, nor need, cygwin. ALL its operations are Windows-native.
