I'm looking to reinstall Apache 2.2.25 since I continue to get these errors in the Windows Application log every 2-5 minutes:

Faulting application name: httpd.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x51dd049c
Faulting module name: zlib1.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x4790446a
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x00002bad
Faulting process id: 0x38e8
Faulting application start time: 0x01cfbfd70cdfbc4f
Faulting application path: C:\Apache2\bin\httpd.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Apache2\bin\zlib1.dll
Report Id: 745f20de-2bca-11e4-bd5d-002590f28d7e

If the new install doesn't work or if there are some "issues", can I simply restore the Apache2 directory from backup and then I'll just be back where I started? I thought about just renaming the current install to something like c:\apache2_old and if something fails, I can delete the new install and rename c:\apace2_old back to c:\apache.

What do you all think?

  • Why not totally uninstall the apache you have now and try an install of 2.4? – mdpc Aug 24 '14 at 20:27
  • We are running ColdFusion 9 and it doesn't support 2.4. – HPWD Aug 24 '14 at 20:46
  • I tried on my local development to uninstall and re-install the downgraded version of Apache and the httpd.conf file is modified so this is very good information to know before hand. Hopefully if someone else reads this, it'll save them a bit of frustration there. – HPWD Aug 25 '14 at 22:30
  • At this rate, I'll get the tumbleweed badge... – HPWD Aug 26 '14 at 20:50

This is a known bug: https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=36780 and should have been corrected in httpd-2.2.13 but apparently either resurfaced or wasn't completely addressed.

For now, I'll just comment out the mod in the http.conf file.
