I've been trying to install apache,php,and mysql on my computer for 2 weeks now. I have been installing and uninstalling apache,but I can't get it to work. I'm on a windows 7 pro 32-bit computer with sp1. I have been trying to install apache 2.2.4. During installation of apache, I get the following:
1. A command line window comes up and outputs 11 or 12 lines of code similar to the following c:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache 2.2\conf\default\httpd-vhosts\conf.in Access is denied.
2. Then,during the same install process for apache, still on the command line, I get <OS 5> Access is denied. :Failed to open the WinNT service manager and also <OS 2> The system cannot find the file specified :No installed service named "Apache 2".
So then I thought I would try and install xampp,because it has what I want. After installing xampp 1.7.7, when I open the xampp control panel and click on start for Apache, I get ERROR: Apache service not started [-1].Also,when I click on start for My Sql,I get ERROR: MySql service not started [-1].
Please note that I uninstalled apache and mysql before I installed xampp. Any help on this would make my year.Thanks in advance,
