  the NCSA server version 1.3 (or 1.4). It fixes numerous bugs in
  the NCSA server and includes many frequently requested new
  features, and has an API which allows it to be extended to meet
  users' needs more easily.

  using a package downloaded from, they are only required for

  To configure Apache 2.0 run the following commands.

  ./buildconf  (not required unless you are a developer)
  ./configure [autoconf arguments] [apache arguments]
  make install
  The buildconf script is very important.  Just running autoconf will not
  leave the directory tree in a usable state.
