When starting Apache as a service you may encounter an error message from Windows service manager. For example if you try to start Apache using the Services applet in Windows Control Panel you may get the following message;
Could not start the apache service on \\COMPUTER
Error 1067; The process terminated unexpectedly.
You will get this error if there is any problem starting Apache. In order to see what is causing the problem you should follow the instructions for Testing Apache at the Command Prompt. [httpd.apache.org]
Also, Apache 1.3.13 now records startup errors in the Application Event Log under Windows NT/2000, if Apache is run as a service. Run the Event Viewer and select Log ... Application to see these events.
Check the Application Event Log with the Event Viewer in case of any problems, even if no error message pops up to warn you that an error occurred.
