Apache Version 2.0 (and up) What is it? ----------- Apache is an HTTP server designed as a plug-in replacement for 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. The Latest Version ------------------ Details of the latest version can be found on the Apache HTTP server project page under http://httpd.apache.org/. Documentation ------------- The documentation available as of the date of this release is also included, in HTML format, in the htdocs/manual/ directory. For the most up-to-date documentation can be found on http://httpd.apache.org/docs/. Installation ------------ Apache 2.0 uses autoconf for configuration and installation. To create Apache's autoconf script, you will need libtool 1.3.3 or higher, and autoconf 2.13 or newer. Those tools will not be required if you are just using a package downloaded from apache.org, they are only required for developers. To configure Apache 2.0 run the following commands. ./buildconf (not required unless you are a developer) ./configure [autoconf arguments] [apache arguments] make make install The buildconf script is very important. Just running autoconf will not leave the directory tree in a usable state. Licensing --------- Please see the file called LICENSE.
