Apache Configuration Question

apache 2.4 - remove | delete | uninstall

i been searching the web for quite some time,

but i could not found how to - completely remove the apache 2.4 .

using :

windows 7

c:\apache24\

i tried all commands, but nothing works.

httpd -k shutdown
httpd -k stop
httpd -k uninstall


keep getting the same result (for each command) :

<OS 5> access is denied.
failed to open the 'Apache2.4' service.


notice, that the service still running,

meaning that the apache is still working,

and i get the "It works!" in the localhost.

please, any ideas?

thanks.

Answer

You are probably running these commands from terminal without Administrator privileges.

If httpd -k uninstall is not working for whatever reason, you should be able to remove service by sc command: Sc delete, other tutorial here.

Again, ensure that you run these commands as Administrator.
