You may want to look at the Apache manual sections Installing Apache for Windows
and Customizing Apache for Windows
; the Installing
section describe installation and configuration using the Apache .msi file you download which asks you to enter information about your installation and generates the configuration file for you. The Customizing
section describes... well, customization.
If you have a Linux server available, the manual may be found in file:///var/www/htdocs/manual/platform/windows.html
, although the directory location may vary it will usually be in the htdocs/manual
directory. It may also be found on line at the Apache Foundation web site.
Hope this helps some.
