Outdated: Installing Apache HTTP Server 2.4.12 on Windows
This section describes how to install Apache 2.4.12 binary distribution on Windows systems.
After downloaded Apache HTTP Server 2.4.12, I continued to install it on my Windows system:
1. Unzip httpd-2.4.12-win32-VC11.zip. Move and rename sub folder .\Apache24 to be C:\apache.
2. Try to start the Apache server in a command window. I got the following error:
httpd: Syntax error on line 37 of C:/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
ServerRoot must be a valid directory
3. To fix this error, open and edit the following line in C:\apache\conf\httpd.conf:
#ServerRoot "c:/Apache24" # original setting
4. Terminate the httpd process in Task Manager and start the Apache server again.
I got another error:
AH00526: Syntax error on line 242 of C:/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
DocumentRoot must be a directory
5. Open and edit C:\apache\conf\httpd.conf again to fix the DocumentRoot configuration:
6. Terminate the httpd process and start the Apache server again.
No errors reported this time.
7. Open a Web browser with http://localhost.
You should see the Apache server default home page saying: "It works!".
Congratulations, the Apache Server is up and running now
as a Web server serving HTTP requests at the default port 80.
