In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to start apache from command line. In this tutorial, we will teach you how to check whether the apache service is working or not. Furthermore, we will teach you how to work with apache in the command line, how to make changes to the httpd configuration file, etc.

Step 1 — type localhost

Follow this detailed step by step guide in order to learn how to start apache from command line.
First of all, open up the browser and in the address bar, type localhost before you hit the “enter” key. With that done, you will see “it works” being displayed on your screen. This means that the apache services are running.

Step 2 — Open Services.msc

Now move on to the services window by opening up the run command, typing in services.msc and hitting the enter key.

Step 3 — Stop apache service

With that done the services window will open up. Over there, let’s stop the Apache service for now.

Step 4 — Check if apache is running

Now let’s go back to the browser and refresh the page. You will notice that this time, the localhost page doesn’t open up. This means that the apache server has stopped.

Step 5 — Open command prompt

Now let’s open up the command prompt. With that done, let’s go to the bin directory in the apache folder.

Step 6 — Locate httpd.exe

Over there in the bin directory, you can see the httpd.exe file.

Step 7 — Resume service

If we type httpd and hit the enter key, you will see that the service starts but prompts an error in the process. The error is displayed because the domain name used is not a qualified one. None the less, the service has started.

Step 8 — Open config file

Now let’s move to the configuration directory in the apache folder. Over there, let’s open the httpd.conf file in the notepad.

Step 9 — Make changes to config file

Over there, find the “localhost:80” text in the notepad and remove the hash from the beginning of that line. With that done, save the file and close the notepad.

Step 10 — Apache will start

Now let’s go back to the command prompt, type httpd once again and hit the enter key.
With that done, you will see that the apache has started in command line without prompting any error.

Step 11 — Check if apache is working

In the browser, let’s refresh the page again and you will see this web page will open up. This means that you have successfully started the apache server from the command line.

  • How to imagine that I did not find this in Google search?

  • The solution was very very simple. You get the error message when you manually try to start the webserver by "httpd -k start", but no service was defined yet.

    just do a "httpd -k install" and the windows service is added to the registry. after that, the "httpd -k start" works without error message.

  • yep

  • have you installed apache? this video shows how to do it /watch?v=SwbJppuPADE

  • if you can't open localhost when you type it in your browser's address bar, that's another story) You need to set up apache first

  • You don't need to type localhost in cmd. It's the server address (just like yotube[dot]com) so it can't be opened directly from cmd. You can only open localhost from yor browser (e.g. firefox ot chrome)

  • same for meee will this help me to open local host ? we 3 have same problem when we type local host in cmd says this error what we have to do? and i cant find appache 32
