Title: Apache installation
Post by: bertupmeier on December 22, 2015, 11:38:23 PM
Hello to all
I've got a basic problem. I've downloaded Apache software vcredist_x86.exe,  vcredist_x66.exe,, and others, but none of those packages include an installer nor any of the .exe files will start under WIN 8.1. What is going wrong? 
Thanks in advance for helpful advises.

vcredist_x86.exe is the redistributable from microsoft, it installs only that.
Apache is not distributed as an installer but it's easy to install manually.

Open the and copy the entire Apache24 folder to your C drive. (C:\Apache24)
Open a Command Prompt as administrator (right click on it's icon and look at the bottom of screen and you should see "Open As Administrator")
type: cd\apache24\bin
type: httpd -k install
type: httpd -k start
