Apache 2.4 - remove | delete | uninstall

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.

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.


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.
