Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a client that is using Windows Web Server 2008, which I am really not familiar with.

We are using apache and PHP. I needed to make a change to the php.ini then restart apache. So, I went to the Services application and restarted Apache, but the change didn't take. So I stopped apache, but our pages are still being served. After doing this, I realized there is a second install of Apache that doesn't show up in Services.

How can I restart this second installation of Apache (which is in our Joomla folder)?

Sorry, really confused about this, I am a linux guy, not Windows, so this is all new.

Are you sure that your pages are not served by IIS? –  dusan.bajic Jun 27 '12 at 18:09
Yeah, pretty sure. We are trying to move over a Joomla installation which previously used apache. –  Zed Said Jun 27 '12 at 18:15
try from cmd: NETSTAT -nab | FINDSTR :80 –  dusan.bajic Jun 27 '12 at 18:43
that should show .exe that is serving web pages –  dusan.bajic Jun 27 '12 at 18:46
Hmm, It just shows: TCP LISTENING –  Zed Said Jun 27 '12 at 18:59
