I am less than a novice beginner on GIS Systems and am groping for answers.

I followed instructions for WIN 7 Install at both http://underdark.wordpress.com/2012/04/06/qgis-server-on-windows7-step-by-step/ and http://hub.qgis.org/projects/quantum-gis/wiki/QGIS_Server_Tutorial#Windows

All appears to work well. I can retrieve a capabilities-XML.

Next, I add an WMS Layer to a shapefile in QGIS. Again, no issues.

Then I attempt to display via Firefox 18.0.2 with address call


The entire operating system becomes unstable at the page call. Firefox displays Connected to LocalHost; there is 100% CPU usage (Pentium Dual Core 2.2 GHz); and 80% memory usage (4 GB). I have to power off to regain control.

I see nothing but errors in the Apache error log but of course I'm not familiar with the references. Spent 10 hours+ trying to troubleshoot and this is my last resort. Any direction would be most helpful and appreciated.

  • Where do those brackets [] come from? – underdark Feb 10 '13 at 9:57
  • VERSION=1.3.0&SRS=EPSG:4326& this combination of parameters is incorrect. As you have version 1.3.0 service you should use CRS=EPSG:4326& – nmtoken Jan 31 '17 at 14:00
