System Administration IBM HTTP Server documentation
Pertains to Windows users

Starting and stopping on Windows operating systems

The server installs as a service, and runs automatically. When you reboot, the server starts itself. You can control the server using the standard Windows Service Control panels.

Note: If you use the developer installation option, then the IBM HTTP Server does not install as a service. You have to run the apache.exe file from a command line.

You can also use the net start IBM HTTP Server 2.x and net stop IBM HTTP Server 2.x commands, where x is the appropriate version of the IBM HTTP Server, such as 2.0.46. For more information about these commands, see the Windows help files. You can also access these commands from the Start menu. Find the default location by clicking Start > Programs > IBM HTTP Server.
