Installing Apache 2.2.4 on Windows Systems

This section describes how to install Apache 2.2.4 binary distribution on Windows systems.

After downloaded Apache HTTP Server 2.2.4, I continued to install it on my Windows system:

1. Down-click apache_2.2.4-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi. The installation wizard starts.

2. Follow the instruction given by the wizard until you see the "Server Information" setting screen. Since I will be using the Web server on my local machine only, I entered the following settings:

Network Domain: localhost
Server Name: localhost
Administrator's Email Address: herong@localhost

Apache 2.2 Installation Settings

3. When the "Destination Folder" screen shows up, click the "Change" button to set "C:\local\apache\" as the destination folder.

4. When the installation is done. The Apache Web server should be running as a background process.

To verify the installation, open a Web browser with http://localhost. You should see the Apache server default home page saying: "It works!".
