How to restart Apache server?

Postby roby_bg » 30. October 2014 15:46

Hi guys,
Could anyone please help me restart apache?
I have used xampp on windows 7 operating system.

First, i tried to go to Control Panel ➤ Administrative Tools ➤
Services and selecting restart on the Apache service.
However in Services there is no Apache at all.

Then, i tried with Command Prompt.
cd C:\xampp\apache\bin
httpd.exe -k restart
Also, didn't work.
The massage i received is:
"The system cannot the file specified" :AH00436: "No installed service named Apache2.4 "

I have no idea what next to do.

Pheraps you have not installed Apache as a Service.
Run XAMPP Control Panel with administrative privileges and try to activate service flag on Apache (and Others like MySql.. and so on).

Remember that you can start and Stop Apache manually from Control Panel with Start and Stop Button.

I hope this help.
