Arrrgh. Fucking Windows
Hate you so much. Why don't you just work, goddamnit? I can take a mac hard drive, bring it to another mac, plug it in, and it'll boot properly off said second hard drive.

But with windows... argh. What the hell.

Oh, lovely, not only will it not work, it has also decided to tell me I'm not running "geniune" windows. Oh well, there doesn't appear to be too much of a difference between "geniune" crap and crap... as long as it doesn't do stupid things like, shutting down randomly, or not running what I need it to run... then that's fine. Be normal crap for all I care.

https/svn/trac server back up. Hurrah! Required steps: ran all the installers. downloaded xampp, ran the apache service installer. Modified the Apache2 service to point to the proper apache. Rebooted. Discovered I had to uninstall the random IIS service I installed (it ate my 80 and 443 port. Hrumph). Rebooted it again. Tested... it's working!

Why the devil are you working with Windows anyway?

Because the development/bug tracking system and the concurrent versioning system that we're using for Ouqi's thing was running on my windows desktop at school.

*shudder* Use easyphp!!!! Instant apache + phpmyadmin + mysql, and through tutorials you can upgrade it all to apache2 and mysql5 etc with minimal hassle! double-click installer deploy, all you have to do is tweak the config file, and turn off or adjust the windows firewall. I'm deploying dev servers left and right with that and simple production servers as well. SVN however I'll admit is running on a proper linux box.

No, no, php+phpmyadmin+mysql is absurdly easy, I agree. XAMPP installs all of it for you (apache2 and mysql5, I think), along with other stuff that I don't use.

However, it's SVN (over HTTPS, requiring apache2 with openssl) + Trac (which requires python, mod_python, and some GNU utilities like diff and enscript) that I needed to migrate. Windows just irritates me because of the registry and services, so I couldn't just move the set of folders and presume it would work.
