Hi all,

I've installed 2.055 on Windows Server 2003 using the .msi file and now would like to upgrade to 2.2. I've downloaded the ZIP but I don't know how to actually upgrade what I have installed. There is a service running.

Can somone explain the steps necessary?

Thanks,

Andrew

It is advised to test it first in an other location, because the changes in httpd.conf:

Unzip the .zip to c:/apache2 (that is the server root in the .zip config)

Change in httpd.conf Listen to for example 88 , so you can test on an other port.

Start apache in a DOS box:
> httpd.exe

and test the standard config by going to http://.......:88/ , it should say; "It Works"

Change the httpd.conf files to your configuration. Be aware that ASF has organized the conf files in seperate files in the conf/extra folder.

See also: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/upgrading.html

When all is working then the basic steps are:

Backup your Apache 2.0.55 folder

Uninstall 2.0.555

If the service is still there, uninstall it by typing in a Dos box:
>apache.exe -k uninstall

Install 2.2.0 as a service:
>httpd.exe -k install

Hope it helps,

Steffen

Hi,

Maybe I should start with the zip file I've downloaded... Very Happy

httpd-2.2.0-win32-src-rev2.zip

Is this the correct zip? When I unzip this file, there is no httpd.conf file, only a httpd.conf.in. This is why I am confused. There is no /bin, /conf, etc. so it looks like the build version.

When I went to the binaries list for Win32, 2.2 was not listed, only 2.055. Is there another zip file that I need?

Thanks,

Andrew

Yep, that is the source code. You do not need that one, only if you want to build it yourself with eg. Visual Studio.

I provide a binary of 2.2.0 because ASF has no binary for Windows available. Download the .zip here at: www.apachelounge.com/download/

That did it! Thanks Steffen.

How long do you think it will be before they create the MSI file? It's kind of nice to have the Monitor and server both on the Program Files menu. I just modified the properties of the existing entries but this will be a problem when I go to install onto my other servers.

Thanks again. I still have my initial problem but I will post that as a new question.

To get the monitor just double click ApacheMonitor.exe , or put it in your Startup folder.
