Installation
Configuration

Windows[edit]

The program can be installed alone from http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi.

However the best is generally to get it with an all-in-one solution like WAMP or EasyPHP, because it includes the installation or PHP and MySQL at the same time.

Apart from that, a portable all-in-one is XAMPP.

Remark (on a PC):


By default Apache is set to automatically launch at startup which is convenient on a server. However on a PC, it may be better to create a script to start and stop it manually. Example with EasyPHP:

net start ews-dbserver
net start ews-httpserver
net start ews-dashboard
pause
net stop ews-dashboard
net stop ews-httpserver
net stop ews-dbserver

Unix-like[edit]

Debian[edit]

 apt-get install apache2

Gentoo[edit]

 emerge apache

Configuration[edit]

The service should be restarted manually after the most part of the configuration modifications:

 vim /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
#or
 vim /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

 /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
