Downloading Apache 2.4.37 Binary for Windows
This section describes how to download Apache 2.4.37 binary distribution for Windows. You should select the VC15 and 64-bit build to match the PHP engine build.
In order to serve PHP scripts as Web pages,
you need to have a Web server running and integrated with the PHP engine.
The most popular Web server today is Apache (HTTP Server).
Here is what I did to download Apache 2.4.37 binary distribution for Windows:
1. Go to Apache Lounge Website at apachelounge.com/.
2. Click "Downloads" from the left side menu.
You see the download page.
3. Click "VC15" from the left side menu,
because I downloaded and installed PHP VC15 (Visual C++ v15) build.
4. Select "httpd-2.4.37-win64-VC15.zip" under the Apache 2.4.37 Win64 heading,
because I downloaded and installed PHP 64-bit build to start downloading.
5. Save the downloaded file, httpd-2.4.37-win64-VC15.zip,
17,764,403 bytes, in a temporary directory.
You should select the VC15 and 64-bit build to match the PHP engine build
that was installed earlier.
