Could you please point me to that one?

Yeehaw. I will not bother with the service stuff as long this thing bails out after 1 second and says "bye".

Thanks a lot. I hope I can find something in the archives...

Urmm. Well, I had it running as user Administrator (for testing only!!), host = localhost.
Isn't this supposed to work?
Before I let Apache find out the host by itself, then it took my dynIP. As this was a bit too risky and I wanted to be on the safe shore (i. e. not introducing more problems until I had the main starting problem resolved), I changed it to localhost in httpd.conf.


*Please ANYONE*: anyone who has this 2.0.xx thing running _successfully_ on cygwin, please report back here. Maybe I can learn a bit of nifty tricks from you :)
