First you have to download apache  :
Click http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi
Go to httpd
If you don't feel comfortable to compile etc... go to binaries
Choose your platform, windows: win32, linux etc...
Download the 2.0.49 version (usually x86...)

The actual site for Apache / httpd (Apache does many things, the http server named httpd is one of them)
Click http://httpd.apache.org/
Actual documentation is here
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/

You should find there all necessary docs install / usage etc...
Feel free to ask if you need more help.

Hi Mercantilum,

Thank you for your response.

Ok, I am http://apache.sunsite.ualberta.ca/httpd/binaries/win32/
I have Windows XP - Home.

So, in 2.0.49, do I have to download all 2.0.49? I am sorry if this question is silly, I am very new to this.

Thanking you inadvance

No silly questions :)

Just download apache_2.0.49-win32-x86-no_ssl.exe

Read the comments at the bottom of the link you sent.

This is a non-ssl version (e.g. no httpS ...) for the current time, install this first, if you need SSL after, we'll see what we can do :)
(for 2.0.49 would have to recompile).

Hi, Thanks again

OK, I read the bottom article, and one of them was:

"If you will install Apache 2.0 on a PC with ZoneAlarm installed, you may discover that Apache 2.0 stops responding, and that when you stop the Apache 2.0 server or shutdown your machine, you may experience crashes (BSoD, or the Blue Screen of Death).

No further details are available at this time. See the following bug report for the details and observations that have been collected;"

I have Zone Alarm....What should I do?

Hmm the bug ( http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7932 ) seems to affect windows 2000.

Try the following
1. Check at ZA site if there is any patch [ Apache is not the problem ]
2. Setup ZoneAlarm to let the port (80) in and out free
3. Save your docs, and try Apache

You are on XP.
