Hello, I downloaded apache 2.4 x64 and unzipped in c:, then I modified the configuration to set htdocs directory and vhosts.

Then I installed the service:
Code:
httpd.exe -k install -n "Apache2.4"


Which result in :
Code:
Installing the 'Apache2.4' service
The 'Apache2.4' service is successfully installed.
Testing httpd.conf....
Errors reported here must be corrected before the service can be started.


In event log I have :
Code:
The Apache2.4 service terminated with the following service-specific error:
Incorrect function.



With
Code:
httpd.exe -t
I have
Code:
Syntax OK


I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the service, but that doesn't work.

Please tell me there's something more to try.

Thanks

The error message you are receiving is usually a result of something not being correct in your HTTPD.CONF file.

Check your Application logs and System logs on your Windows 2012 server and it should tell you what is wrong (may be a missing module, or something mis-typed on one of the lines in HTTPD.CONF).

addendum to my previous post - usually in HTTPD.CONF file, but could also be in other .CONF files (vhost, security, SSL, etc.)

I mention this just incase you may have modified any .CONF files.

Glad to hear that you got the issue resolved.

I always make a backup of my .CONF files before I make any adjustments, so that if something goes wrong, I can put my backup .CONF files right back and bring Apache online immediately.
