- Subject: Apache2 on Cygwin 1.7 does not start (cygserver is running)
Today I was able to get Apache2 running on Cygwin *1.5* using these
The "CYGWIN=server" variable was critical.
I now have Cygwin 1.7 installed side-by-side with 1.5, and as far as I
can tell, the two do not interfere.
However, I am unable to launch apache2 in Cygwin 1.7. Initially I
followed the same directions, and got this:
$ echo $CYGWIN
$ export CYGWIN=server
$ net start cygserver
The CYGWIN cygserver service is starting.
The CYGWIN cygserver service was started successfully.
$ /usr/sbin/apachectl2 start
/usr/sbin/apachectl2: line 78: 1372 Bad system call $HTTPD -k $ARGV
Hmmm. I checked the 1.7 change log and it says that the
"CYGWIN=server" setting is now obsolete. However leaving this out
doesn't help either.
Note that I made sure I shut down cygserver from 1.5 before I tried it
with 1.7, and I also have apache2 configured to listen on different
ports, just in case they were both running at the same time (which I
didn't allow anyway).
So there must be something different with 1.7 that isn't covered by
those instructions - does anyone know what this might be, please?
