"Hopefully you know something about Web servers in general, and the Apache Web server in particular, or else you wouldn't be reading this page. This article isn't intended to give background on what Apache is nor why you should use it, but how to get going with it once the decision has been made. In other words, simply how to download it, and install it, and turn it on."

"I should make it very clear right away that this article is about the latest released version of the server, Apache 1.3. It is not about the still-under-development 2.0 version. You'll have to wait for another article for that. :-)"

"The setting up of an Apache Web server falls naturally into a number of steps. Unfortunately, the steps differ slightly depending upon whether you're going to be using a binary distribution or if you're using Windows; the steps that may not apply are marked as 'optional' below.

  1. Download the software
  2. [optional] Build the software (unless you downloaded a binary distribution)
  3. Stop any currently-running Apache server
  4. [optional] De-install any existing Apache package (Windows only)
  5. Install the new Apache software
  6. Make sure the configuration is correct
  7. Start the Web server
  8. Customise your content"
