    This is a common problem I do not know how to solve. I have installed php, mysql, and Apache on my XP machine. The Apache feather (icon) will appear on my taskbar near the clock for a few days/weeks but eventually the icon disappears. I have enabled the taskbar feature which keeps all the taskbar icons visible. But I need a solution to the problem of how do I keep the Apache icon from disappearing.

    Thank you in advance for your reply.

    So in order to get at back what do you do at the moment? Icons will disappear from the system tray if they crash or close themselves. You've obviously ruled out the other option of it being hidden.

    My question was what do you do to get the icon back? As in it sounded like it has happened a few times and you've managed to resolve it?

    If you go to start > programs > Startup is the apache service monitor listed in there?

    Yes, Apache HTTP 2.2 Server is listed. What does this mean I should do next?

    Thanks for the reply.

    If you click the item from the startup list, does it tell you its already running?

    OK, I have part of the problem solved. When I run the cursor over the name of the Apache 2.2 HTTP program in the programs list from the Start Menu, I can see the icon with the words "Monitor Apache Servers"

    When I click on the selection "Monitor Apache Servers" the icon appears in the task bar as it should.

    The last question is how do I make the icon appear automatically on start-up?

    That shortcut should be in the "Startup" folder in the start menu in order for it to appear on startup.
