IIS until you get Apache configured and working. Secondly, consider

I am running cygwin on Windows 2003. The apache server in cygwin is

If I put in a mime type (say the extension is .abx and the

Stop. Where exactly are you putting that mime type? Are you defining it
for Apache or IIS?
then apache in cygwin quits running even though ps -ef states that
there are four or five instances of httpd running in cygwin.
If there are 4 or 5 instances of httpd running then it's quite clear
that Apache has not quit running. What makes you say it quit running?
What is going on?
From your description it's hard to say...
Does the httpd.conf file in cygwin somehow connect with the config
file in Windows?
What "config file in Windows"? A config file for what exactly? You have
not even bother to name the file! You only mention above httpd.conf
whereas before (I put a mime type for the 2003 web server) you were
Generally an httpd.conf file is a configuration for an httpd process.
The httpd process is generally associated with Apache not IIS. I don't
know what IIS calls itself, or rather I've forgotten.
Also, putting a mime type into an httpd.conf file does nothing in and of
itself. Config files are generally read at start up so if you didn't
restart Apache it wouldn't even know about the change.
And are you using Cygwin's Apache or just a regular Apache for Windows
Apache? There's a difference and that difference deals specifically with
where the config files reside and how the httpd process searches for them.
Any help would be appreciated.
A more exacting description of the problem would be appreciated...
