Installing Apache Web Server on a WIN32 System Written by DDRtists for TheHelper.net Software Site: http://httpd.apache.org/ What is Apache? Apache is one of the most popular, if not the most popular, webserver software. It is free from http://apache.org. First off, this tutorial is for a Win32 system only, Linux and other OS systems are a bit harder to install on. Step 1 - Downloading: First off, we need to download the software package from http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi. At the time of writing this, the current version is "2.2.4". The package you'll want to snag is "Win32 Binary (MSI Installer)". Pick a mirror, and download it. Step 2 - Installing: Once downloaded, run the MSI file that you've just downloaded, you should see something like: Click "Next >", and agree to the Terms of Service thing, and also hit "Next >" on the page that comes after the ToS. That page is just about what Apache is, and what it can do. Now you will be on a page such as this: This is your first configuration page. Network Domain: Name of the site you want to host ( It doesn't have to be only for that site ) Server Name: ( Name of the server ) Administrator's Email Address: ( Your email Address ) Install Apache For: Choose Port 80* if you want it for a public server. Choose Port 8080* if you are using it for a private test server. After choosing the options here, hit "Next >" and choose "Typical" as the install type, and then hit "Next >" and choose where to install to. I will be installing to "C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\". You will then see this screen: Click "Install". After it finishes, hopefully you see this: If not, post here and I'll try to help. If you do see that, congratulations. You now have apache installed on your computer. Goto http://localhost to test *You will need to forward the port, if you want other people to be able to connect if you are behind a router. You will also need to allow it if you have a firewall. ___________________________ aye, it's pretty easy to install apache, but for the people that have never worked with it, I hope this helps.
