We have been having bad weather here in New england and my system was just shut down by a power failure. After power was back and I reboot my PC the Apache2.2 Service fails to start. In looking at the event log I see the following error msg..
The Apache2.2 service terminated with service-specific error 1 (0x1).
Any idea on what went wrong and how I get the Apache Server running again.
Thanks for any help.
There are lots of things that can cause that error. Is there nothing in Apache's error log file (not the Windows event log)?
First, Welcome to SitePoint's Apache forum.
As Dan said, there are MANY things which could have caused the problem. Failure to start is generally a sign that your httpd.conf has some bad syntax in it but a power failure is not a likely source of an error like that.
From the lack of any further information, I'd think the problem is that, when you installed Apache, you didn't PREVENT IIS from starting with WinDoze. Check Start | Run and services.msc to see whether IIS has confiscated port 80. If not, then you probably have corrupt files (and a damaged HD) due to the power surges when the power came back on.
Sorry for that news.
Have you tried config test...?
