  1. Download Apache

If you are downloading for your company's server, stick to version 1.3.xx. But if your are downloading for your own personal computer, you can download any version.

    However, if you are downloading version 2.0.xx, download version 2.0.46 or higher, as earlier versions had certain issues while integration with PHP.

    Click on Download and download the Windows binary and not the source. The filename would look something like this
