Hi all,

I'm trying to install Apache on my machine. I have Windows 7, 64-bit. I downloaded Apache 2.2 and followed the instructions to install, choosing "localhost" as the server name.

When I select "Start Apache in Console" from the Start Menu, nothing happens. A black console window opens and just sits there. I try to visit http://localhost or on a variety of browsers, but nothing comes up.

The Apache log seems innocuous:

[Thu Apr 14 18:52:36 2011] [notice] Apache/2.2.17 (Win32) configured -- resuming normal operations
[Thu Apr 14 18:52:36 2011] [notice] Server built: Oct 18 2010 01:58:12
[Thu Apr 14 18:52:36 2011] [notice] Parent: Created child process 3552
[Thu Apr 14 18:52:36 2011] [notice] Child 3552: Child process is running
[Thu Apr 14 18:52:36 2011] [notice] Child 3552: Acquired the start mutex.
[Thu Apr 14 18:52:36 2011] [notice] Child 3552: Starting 64 worker threads.
[Thu Apr 14 18:52:36 2011] [notice] Child 3552: Starting thread to listen on port 8080.

Grateful your help,

Well if anyone's interested the answer was that my server was actually fine. I just needed to put the port number in the address, like this:


Hope that helps someone out there one day.
