I am trying to configure apache on a 64-bit system running Windows 7. I installed apache using a win-32 installer (32-bit installer, which I guess is the reason behind problems). The installation was successful and I can browse to localhost in the browser.
But, I am not sure where to do the apache config changes. There is one
httpd-win file inside
\Apache Group\Apache2\conf\ but no
httpd.conf file. I did some changes inside the
httpd-win file but the changes are not taking effect.
For example I tried to change the port number to fix one problem of apache not starting if skype is already running on my system. I changed the following line -
But, still if skype is already running, apache does not start. Also, if I type some garbage in the file and restart apache, it works fine. I expected it to not run due to syntax errors.
Is it possible that all these problems are because I installed 32-bit apache on 64 -bit system. I also searched for 64-bit installer but did not find one yet. Can anybody tell me where to find one? Please correct me if I am wrong somewhere.
