The Apache HTTP Server is one of the most widely used web server softwares available. It is an open-source software that can be run on a large number of different operating systems, including Windows. This article will teach you how to install the Apache web server on your WIndows PC.


  1. 1
    If you haven't done so already, download the Apache HTTPD Web Server from the Apache web site . Be sure to download the apache_2.2.16-win32-x86-no_ssl MSI installer here: (
  2. 2
    Save the file to your Windows Desktop.
  3. 3
    Double click the msi file saved on your Windows Desktop. You will see a window that looks like this:

    Click "Next>".
  5. 5
    Click the radio button "I accept the terms in the license agreement"
  6. 6
    Click "Next>".
  7. 7
    On the next window, again click "Next>".

    Next, fill in all the text boxes with the following information:
    1. "Network Domain": localhost
    2. "Server Name": localhost
    3. "Administrator's Email Address": your email address

    We are going to install all the packages and scripts in the path C:\Server\Apache2\ (assuming C: is your main hard drive). So in the text box "Folder name:" type in "C:\Server\Apache2\". The ending backslash is important.

    Once the Apache installation software has finished installing all the files on your computer, you will see a final window letting you know the installation was a success. Click the "Finish" button.
