I've just updated my Apache2 (v2.2.21) installation on Windows - first uninstall the old version and then install the new one. Afterwards, I was very badly surprised when instead of my default (and quite large)
index.html I've found a very "useful" It works! index file instead...
Even though the manual clearly says:
Also, if you already have a file called htdocs\index.html, it will not be overwritten (and no index.html.default will be installed either). This means it should be safe to install Apache over an existing installation, although you would have to stop the existing running server before doing the installation, and then start the new one after the installation is finished.
Unfortunately, my last backup of this file is not very recent and a lot of work went into it in between.
So - what did I do wrong? Or is it a bug on Apache's side? Or even better, might I be able to recover the file somehow?
The config files were not overwritten.
