I'm having a problem with apache running on a windows server. It's a long drawn out story but basically what I want is a batch file / exe that I can run when apache stops responding to stop it and then start it, not restart it.

Doing a restart from the apache monitor while on the server does restart apache, but the web site isn't available for some reason, but doing a stop then a start seems to be ok.

I haven't got a clue why, or what I need to do to fix it, so for the short term can someone give me some idea as to the batch file I would need?

Once that is running so that apache restarts properly and the server doesn't have to be rebooted I can try and figure out what else is screwed to be causing the problems.

Thanks

you can use apache itself
with
httpd -k stop
httpd -k start

or

net stop Apache2
net start Apache2

maybe net stop apache2.2 and net start apache2.2 depending what the name of the service is.
