Title: MSI installer gone?
Post by: lixoaqui on October 14, 2015, 02:18:10 AM
The MSI installers are no longer available for apache 2.4?

The install.txt file still has reference to them like " The Apache/Win32 binaries are distributed as Windows Installer packages
  (.msi) named httpd-2.4.xx-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi for a version without mod_ssl " but they seem to be deprecated because I can't find any 2.4 MSI installer files anymore for windows.

Can anyone explain and provide links if they are still available? (they are quite useful)

Wow, that was probably changed long ago when version 2.4 was branched off the development trunk. Binaries at were always volunteered and the volunteer stopped.

It's not real hard to install apache manually. All you have to know is how to open a zip file and move files onto the hard drive.

The bottom 3 have installers, the trade-off is they may not be the most current version and they include many other things.

Thanks for the information.

I know how to install it manually and have done that multiple times but to be honest I still think the installer was pretty great: it installs the apache service, the start menu icons where you get some nice links to "monitor apache" or "test apache configuration" for example.

Mainly I miss those links and hate to see something go "backwards" instead of "forward" :)

Anyway, thanks and I'll have to stick with manual installation as I don't like the WAMP packages software (I still like to have some control :) )
