Installing Apache HTTPD web server with PHP and OpenSSL support on Windows

Apache HTTPD

Fresh Apache HTTPD binaries can be found on Apache Lounge site. Note that you will need the binary compiled with OpenSSL 0.9.8 to work with our future PHP installation. Also, there is a link to VC10 redistributable somewhere at the top part of the download page. Make sure to grab it and install on your Windows before you start with Apache HTTPD installation and configuration.

Go to C:\Apache24\bin

Just extract the content of the package and move “Apache24” directory to the “C:” drive. You can start the web server by running “httpd.exe” from “C:\Apache24\bin” folder. In the same folder you can find useful ApacheMonitor utility, which allows you to start and stop the server conveniently. I recommend to create a shortcut to this utility and place it to the startup folder (either yours or for all users). Also, Apache HTTPD can be set up to run as a service on system startup by executing “C:\Apache24\bin\httpd.exe -k install” command.
