The steps are quite straight forward, download the binary installation and install it.

2) Click on the MSI installer

3) Provide server information during the installation process, e.g network name and administrator email address.

4) Choose running Apache as a Window’s service, if you require the Apache to always run when the server boots up. Otherwise, you can always start the Apache service from the command line.

5) Done, open your favour internet browser and access “http://localhost”
