I have installed apache server on my development machine (XP pro)but for some reason there are no services installed and nothing shows in the apache service monitor screen. How is the service created?

Here are the isntructions you are looking for:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/win_service.html

You can install Apache as a Windows NT service as follows:

    apache -i -n "service name"
To install a service to use a particular configuration, specify the configuration file when the service is installed:

    apache -i -n "service name" -f "\my server\conf\my.conf"


The page listed above will provide more details.

there was no "Install as Service for All Users" option in the installattion package, the instructions mention that it should be run from a console window first, but when i do this nothing happens, apache does not start.

apologies, there was an option to install as a service , but I am running IIS so want to do this manually under port 8080. I have downloaded 2.2 apache now and I get the same thing, it installs but there are no services installed which makes sense, but I dont where I execute the commands from your linked instructions to create the service or get apache running.

ok you are running IIS which is using port 80.  Apache by default trys to use port 80 as well.  you will need to go into the configuration and cange the port that apache is listening to.  Here are the directions.

I have worked out that starting apache in console does start the Apache process and then I am able to see the apache test page in a browser http://localhost:8080. So this closes out this question I now create my next, thanks for your comments.
