[SOLVED] Install Trouble

Postby cmaurand » 08. June 2007 12:30

I'm posting this for informational purposes. The installer does not set the correct binary path for the apache service upon installation. It puts the value as "c:\program files\xamp\apache\bin\apache.exe" -k runservice

It should be:

"c:\xampp\apache\bin\apache.exe" -k runservice

Thought you all should know.

Are you saying there's a typo in the orig path (missing the last 'p' in 'xampp')
(and that you forgot to put 'program files' in your correction)

or that you should omit 'program files' ... in which case its user dependant on where you installed xampp to

Yes there is a typo inthe message. the path inserted into the registry by the installer was:

"C:\Program Files\xampp\apache\bin\apache.exe" -k runservice

rather than

"C:\xammpp\apache\bin" -k runservice

"Program Files" should be omitted from the path.
