Description Dan McFadyen 2007-03-12 08:16:31 UTC
After installing using the MSI, the bin directory contains an httpd.exe and no

The documents installed with the same MSI file (downloaded this morning) contain
references to a bin/Apache file that does not exist.

Which one is it supposed to be?
Comment 1 Bob Ionescu 2007-03-16 11:35:35 UTC
-> Prior to 2.1 --> Apache.exe
-> Since 2.1 --> httpd.exe

It looks like the docs have not been updated yet.
Comment 2 Tony Stevenson 2007-07-26 13:37:01 UTC
Can you tell us which documents you see these in exactly, please?
I can then set about updating them.

Apache2.2\ISNTALL.txt Includes the following text:

  If you have unpacked this binary distribution from the .zip package, you 
  _must_ edit the conf/httpd.conf file (with notepad or another text editor) 
  to reflect the correct ServerName, Domain, and directory paths.  Search for 
  the text "@@" to discover what you must edit.  To install and start the 
  service after you have corrected the httpd.conf file, use the command

    bin\Apache -k install
    bin\Apache -k start

  The .msi package configures the httpd.conf file, and installs and starts 
  the Apache2 service for you.  It also installs plenty of useful shortcuts
  and the taskbar ApacheMonitor.  We strongly encourage you to use it.

Which references the non existent bin\Apache.

Not really a big issue, just a tad confusing for some people.
