Make sure the sites/default/files folder had the correct ACLs /
permissions. Assuming Apache is compiled natively (run outside Cygwin),
I don't think Cygwin's output really matters. In either case, check the
user that is running the Apache process and make sure appropriate ACLs /
permissions are set for that user.
As a side note: Personally, I'd have a proper VirtualBox image to run
this, assuming the machine can handle it. (-:
