I installed cygwin in a Windows pc. All ok.
Then I tried to install apache package. I selected all relevant packages and installed them as well.
The problem: In /usr/sbin I can see apachectl2 and http2 and also I can see the configuration files under /etc/apache2 e.g the httpd.conf it does not seem to work.
There is no www directory under /var. I created one in case and also a subdirectory named cgi-bin i.e. I created www/cgi-bin and placed a sample .pl script but it does not work.
I can not even connect to the main apache page i.e. in http://localhost:9080 (I put 9080 in the httpd.conf).
The /var/log/apache2/error_log is empty.

What am I doing wrong here?

UPDATE:
I see in various sources that somehow cygserver is a prerequisite. I see an advice that a CYGWIN env var should exist that should contain the word server. Have no idea what this means.

UPDATE 2:
Following this example I installed cygserver as a service. This seem to go ok.
Also I tried to install ssh (not sure why) and run httpd2.conf. These failed to install:

I have no idea what I am doing wrong here. I have been trying this from yesterday. Any ideas?

UPDATE 3
For some reason sometimes the apache service starts!

enter image description here

When I type localhost:8085 (I changed the port in httpd2.conf to be 8085 the browser just hangs. I get no response and the page seems to be in some kind of loading state as if trying to establish connection

UPDATE 3
In the /var/log/apache2/error_log now I see:

Have you looked at this: httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/cygwin.html? – boot13 May 19 '13 at 11:25
    
@boot13:No I haven't thank you for the link.There is no apache_1.3.x in my installation though – user65971 May 19 '13 at 11:52

The error message contains the answer (emphasis mine):

2 [main] httpd2 1684 child_info_fork::abort: unable to remap mod_dir.so to same address as parent (002D0000) - **try running rebaseall**

This is answered in the official Cygwin FAQ.

Could a rebaseall corrupt my installation? – user65971 May 21 '13 at 19:22
    
rebaseall is a safe procedure and usually fixes fork(2) errors such as these. If that doesn't help, it may be a BLODA problem. – Yaakov May 27 '13 at 22:12
