Hi Igor. Crap I messed up in my last post. Please do not read it. It will
only upset you.
I got the service to exist in the Services applet with:
$cygrunsrv -I Apache -p /usr/sbin/httpd.exe -t auto
but it does not behave as a normal service. A normal service set to auto
will start with no user intervention at boot. But that is not the case here.
I still have to fire up Cygwin into the bash shell from the desktop. And since
I have to do that I see no real benefit in running the above Apache as
a service. Should I start Cygwin as a Service also?
