I have been searching the web for quite some time, but I could not found how to <strong>completely</strong> remove the apache 2.4 .
Using : Windows 7 c:\apache24\
I've 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.
You are probably running these commands from terminal without Administrator privileges.
Again, ensure that you run these commands as Administrator.
I've had this sort of problem..... The solve: cmd/powershell run as ADMINISTRATOR!!! :D end! I always forget.....
Notice: In powershell need to put .\ for example: .\httpd -k shutdown .\httpd -k stop .\httpd -k uninstall
Result: Removing the 'apache2.4' service The 'Apache2.4' service has been removed successfully.
