How do you get mapserver for windows work on 64 bit microsoft 2008 server? I tried installing it and the apache server said it started but it would not serve even a basic html file. I have 32 bit enabled on the server as well as cgi. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Supply more info: which installer did you use? How did you start apache? How did you test apache? Check the apache logfiles: what do they say?

  • We definitely need more information about the error you're getting. I use mapserver on 64bit windows 2008 server all the time without problems, so there might be an issue with your apache configuration rather than mapserver itself. Commented Oct 1, 2011 at 19:23

As far as pre-built 64 bit Windows binaries support is concerned, the answer is to either fetch binaries from http://vbkto.dyndns.org/sdk/ and roll your own or pay Jeff McKenna at http://www.gatewaygeomatics.com/ for his 64 bit MS4W build.

It is old, but to guide new comers :

GISInternals is providing latest releases (both 32-bit and 64-bit) installs on windows.
