Install Apache2.4 on Windows Nano Server 2016
« on: November 05, 2016, 10:42:44 AM »

Steps i did to install Apache2.4 on Windows Nano Server 2016

- I'm using VirtualBox 5 here for running VM's
- Client computer Windows 10 x64
- Download the Windows 2016 ISO from microsoft evaluation software
- Mount ISO image , copy the folder NanoServerImageGenerator from it somwhere convenient for your setup, i copied it to C:\  so C:\NanoServerImageGenerator is my working folder
- Copy vcruntime140.dll (search for it in C:\Windows\System32 folder, on a x64 windows ,with Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable installed)
, and httpd-2.4.23-x64-vc14-r3.zip to C:\NanoServerImageGenerator for convenience

You will need vcruntime140.dll version 14.x.+ for httpd-2.4.23-x64-vc14 (right click on it -> Properties -> Product Version should say 14.something)
Not sure if other libraries are needed , this worked for me


# All of the powershell commands are run from an elevated terminal

Code: [Select]
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> cd C:\NanoServerImageGenerator
PS C:\NanoServerImageGenerator> Import-Module .\NanoServerImageGenerator.psm1
PS C:\NanoServerImageGenerator> dir

- Create a new VirtualBox VM , choose Win 2012 x64 , attach the nano.vhd when asked about virtual hard disk , for the network interface i've selected Bridged Adapter for ease of use
- Start the VM , login with Administrator/P@ssword (if you didn't change it), select Networking -> Ethernet , to see your IP address (mine was 192.168.133.224)

- Point your browser to http://192.168.133.224 in my case , yours will be different and you should see the apache index


Note: if you want to run your Nano server in Hyper-V , since you don't need the OEMDrivers (which take up more space ,and take longer to generate the virtual disk) , you can use this command to generate the vhd instead
Code: [Select]
PS C:\NanoServerImageGenerator> New-NanoServerImage -DeploymentType Guest -Edition Standard -MediaPath "F:\" -ComputerName nanoserver -AdministratorPassword $(ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText -Force "P@ssword") -CopyFiles .\vcruntime140.dll,.\httpd-2.4.23-x64-vc14-r3.zip -TargetPath .\nano.vhd

no problem :) , i also wrote the same article on microsoft's technet wiki
also managed to have full WAMP stack installed , but it's tricky since you don't have full .net framework and/or visual c++ redistributable
which also means that you can't even run , basic console based text editor like vim or nano for windows or any other shell like mysql client, php interactively on Nano Server

the good thing is that you can copy files to remote machine through powershell sessions , and you can edit files remotely with Powershell ISE  using PSEdit command , i will add the continuation in a couple of days although i would rather use Windows Server Core to run WAMP
