Apart from the fact that "CYGWIN=server" is an obsolete option (see
you don't provide any details whatsoever except for "it doesn't work".
*What* doesn't work? Does the above cygrunsrv -I fail? Or does
cygrunsrv not start httpd2? Or does cygrunsrv start httpd2 but httpd2
refuses to run?
Did you inspect the event log or the file "/var/log/CYGWIN apache2.log"(*)?
Is cygserver actually running, provided it's really required by httpd2?
Does nobody have enough privileges like "Allow to logon as service"?
Did you set the apache configuration so that it doesn't try to call
setuid? Are the file permission correct? Etc.
(*) Btw., it would be preferrable to use a more simple service name like
"apache2" or "httpd2", otherwise you have spaces in the service
name. Note that sshd is installed with -I sshd -d "CYGWIN sshd",
