Starting and Stopping Apache Server

This section describes how to start and stop the Apache server using start and stop scripts. Windows Task Manager can also be used to stop the Apache server.

1. The normal way to start and stop the Apache server is to use the ApacheMonitor program by running the following command:

C:\local\apache\bin\ApacheMonitor.exe

2. Check the task bar area. You will see an Apache monitor icon showing up.

3. Click on the Apache monitor icon. You will see 3 sub menu items: Start, Stop and Restart. You can use them any time to start and stop the Apache server.

4. Another way to know if the Apache server is running or not is to use Windows Task Manager. Run Windows Task Manager, and click the Processes tab. If you see "httpd.exe" is listed as a running process, you know that your Apache server is running.

4. Of course, Windows Task Manager can also be used to stop the Apache server. Select "httpd.exe" on Processes tab on Windows Task Manager, and click the "End Process" button. Then click "Yes" on the warning message to terminate "httpd.exe". Repeat the process again if see more than one instances of "httpd.exe".
