Re: Cygwin Apache installation problem

Thank you for your relpy.

You were right. I've extracted the tar file onto a different directory and
it did worked like a charm. This is a COE system so I might have space
issues in the previous folder, as you said.

The reason I want to use apache for cygwin is because I need to use cygwin's
perl in some cgi pages.

Thanks again.
