Apache 2.2 Installation

Posted on 2006-05-14
Last Modified: 2010-03-04
Hello Experts,

I am currently running windows XP professional edition, and just downloaded the Apache server 2.2 which I want to test it out on my machine.   The installation is done without any problem, and the service is showing "started" normally; however, when I type the address in firefox (or IE) , the page just keep loading and nothing comes out, which I assume a page of "It works" message should be shown if everything is setup properly.   The listening port of the service is on port 80 ...

I am not quite sure which part goes wrong... any suggestion?

Many Thanks!

    Hi R.K

    Thank you for your information.  But instead of using any package software, I want to experiment with how to install apache alone and get the configuration right.
