problem with apache as service

Postby nicolas.poulain » 10. December 2008 21:38

Hi

I tri to install Apache as a service but I can't :(

I have tried by clicking the SVC check in Xampp control panel and by starting the file apacheinstallservice.bat

The two times it seem's to be the same result :
- apache2.2 is really in the list of the MS-services
- but it can't start with the following message
Code: Select all
Installing Apache2.2 as an service
Installing the Apache 2.2 service
the apache2.2 service is succefully installed
Testing httpd.conf
Errors reported here must be corrected before the service can be started
Now we start apache2.2
le service apache2.2 démarre
le service n'a pas pu être lancé
une erreur spécifique s'est produite : 1.
vous obtiendrez une aide supplémentaire en entrant NET HELPMSG 3547.


What can I do to resolve ?

Read the Windows eventlogs (system and application).

Thanks ;)

The message is :
Directory X:/.... path is invalid

X:\ is a network drive !

I have the following configuration in httpd.conf (really in extra/httpd-xampp.conf)
Code: Select all
Alias /test "X:/cl_test/"
<directory "X:/cl_test">
AllowOverride AuthConfig
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</directory>


Is it impossible to work with a network drive ?

A lot of thanks

Yes and no... Services can't work with network drive mappings. Use the UNC paths ("//server/share/path") instead.

For explanation WHY Services can not work with mapped drives:

Network Drives are connected when logging on to the PC, using the credentials of the current user to map the drives. The services are normally started when the computer is booting, so before the user is logged on. That's the reason why it is not possible to use the drive letters.

The same thing for mysql :
datadir="//TEST/dir/mysql_data"

What become the absolute path when you do that ?

If I do an include("//TEST/dir/file.php") it doesn't work :(

More any good idea ;)
