Hi, I have an Apache server 2.2.17 on Windows XP SP2 and have been trying to "harden" the server. With regards, to Apache, I set up an "apache" user which would limit potential damage to the system in case of a compromise as per the following modsecurity post http://www.modsecurity.org/blog/archives/2006/06/jailing_apache.html. After putting in all the user settings, my service has completely failed, but I can launch the httpd from command line or by double clicking on it. What could be the problem here? Kindly help. I tried to jail Apache but have jailed myself Rolling Eyes

The error from event viewer is "The description for Event ID ( 7024 ) in Source ( Service Control Manager ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: Apache2.2, 1 (0x1)."

Try logging in yourself once with the apache account. That builds the registry settings for the user as well as the Docs & Settings folders as well.
