INTRODUCTION

The Apache HTTP Server is a powerful and flexible HTTP/1.1 compliant web server. Originally designed as a replacement for the NCSA HTTP Server, it has grown to be the most popular web server on the Internet. As a project of the Apache Software Foundation, the developers aim to collaboratively develop and maintain a robust, commercial-grade, standards-based server with freely available source code.

Enjoy,

Apache Haus Crew




INSTALLATION:

You must first install the Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable Package. Download and Install, if you have not done so already (see URL above)

Unzip the Apache24 folder in the package zip file to the root directory on any drive. This is the "ServerRoot" in the config.
Example: c:\Apache24

To test your installation;

Open a command prompt and cd to the \Apace24\bin folder on the drive you unzipped the zip file to.

To Start Apache in the console type:

    httpd.exe

Press Enter. If there are any errors it will tell you. Warning will not stop Apache from working, they do need to be addressed none the less. If there are no errors (there shouldn't be, but it happens) the cursor will sit and blink on the next line. So far so good.

This distribution comes pre-configured for localhost. You can now test your installation by opening up your Web Browser and typing in the address:

    http://localhost

If everything is working properly you should see the Apache Haus's test page.

You can shut down Apache by pressing Ctrl+C (It may take a few seconds)


To Install Apache as a service:

In most cases you will want to run Apache as a Windows Service. To do so you install Apache as a service by typing at the console prompt;

    httpd -k install

You can then start Apache by typing

    httpd -k start

Apache will then start and eventually release the console window.

Other Command line options:

Stop Apache   httpd -k stop
Restart Apache httpd -k restart
Uninstall Apache Service httpd -k uninstall
Command Line Options List httpd -h

ApacheMonitor

The Apache Monitor is a desktop tray application that allows you to monitor the existence of a running Apache service and easily start, stop and restart Apache. To use it just double click on the ApacheMonitor.exe in the \Apache24\bin folder. If you want it to start automatically for you when you log into the computer, just drag a copy into the Startup folder in Window's Start Menu.


Included 3rd party modules

None
