I have EasyPHP installed on Windows Server 2008 Datacenter Edition. Apache appears to be running fine. I can access /home (the defaul directory of EasyPHP). However, if I create a directory I get this error on Chrome:

Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data.

My httpd.conf file has this as one of its directives:

Alias /ocomon "${path}/www/ocomon"

<Directory "${path}/www/ocomon/">
    Allow from all

My ocomon folder is under C:\Program Files (x86)\EasyPHP-5.3.9\www that is the DocumentRoot value.

What could the problem be and how can I troubleshoot it?

That probably means that PHP's execution blew up, and that the Apache server had no data to send back to the client. Check Apache's error logs to confirm.

I found the problem.

It was a PHP error that was causing this issue. I don't know why Apache won't show the PHP error in the browser.
