You will see from an earlier post that I had Apache running.
I then added a new entry to httpd-vhosts and hosts and the Apache server crashed.
Nothing in error log but in Event Viewer it said my version of Notepad and Notepad+++ were not compatible with Win 8 64 bit. I have now installed the latest version, deleted and reloaded both files.
Apache crashed again. This time all the error logs were clear, nothing.
This is what I added to the two files.
Allow from all
Require all granted
I am reluctant to uninstall Apache and start again because I am not sure how to go about it with a 64 bit windows version. The existing Apache was installed by the people who upgraded the pc to 64 bit.
