That, of course, depends on the operating system in question. If you
are using a *nix type system I would suggest you start by using its
package management application to download and install things. That
will/should resolve dependencies and the like and make everything
much easier.

As the versions available from the repos aren't always the most
bleeding edge, if you find that you need capabilities that are only
found in newer releases you can then proceed on and get the
binaries/source directly - but you're more on your own in terms of
making all the parts work.

Hi, tnx,
well I have done both a fedora and a MS W-XP installation before, but now im (unfortunately) on a W10, which is the target.

Its only a bread-n-butter variant, will run some PHP with an ODBC coupling to a MIMER-SQL engine. (actually lifting development of my web to newer machine & sw)

¨But when looking at the apache.org I got the impression that there were a myrriad of variants to choose from.....
I just really want one single self-installing image (possibly with some checking like pgp)

In that case, please also note that W10 is not a server system and is
therefore artifically limited in the number of incomming connections it
can handle. Because of this I would strongly encourage using a Windows
Server system instead, even if running Apache httpd.

Ok, tnx, could have thought there would be some issues,
so is there a diff from XP in the way http is handled ?
I think it might be time to shove MS alltogether an take the trouble to learn back to an ix system ...

You can definitely try it on Windows 10, it shouldn't be worse than XP.
The major difference since the last time you installed might be that there
are no longer Windows binaries on the httpd website. [1]
I recommend the builds from ApacheLounge:
<a href="https://www.apachelounge.com/download/" title="https://www.apachelounge.com/download/">https://www.apachelounge.com/download/</a>

If you haven't downloaded PHP for Windows in a while, that has also moved:
<a href="https://windows.php.net/" title="https://windows.php.net/">https://windows.php.net/</a>
If you are using the ApacheLounge build with mod_php, you should download
the Thread-Safe version of PHP.

There are several projects in apache.org. You are looking for this project:

<a href="http://httpd.apache.org/" title="http://httpd.apache.org/">http://httpd.apache.org/</a>

What will interest you most today, in the above page, is the download
link for the 2.4 version:

<a href="http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi#apache24" title="http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi#apache24">http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi#apache24</a>

And the binaries section, which is here:

<a href="http://www-eu.apache.org/dist//httpd/binaries/" title="http://www-eu.apache.org/dist//httpd/binaries/">http://www-eu.apache.org/dist//httpd/binaries/</a>

The basic things you probably know about server settings should still
work. You may check them here for safeness and eventual problems, of
course. The community is very helpful.

PHP should be downloaded from its page, and that should be easy to do. I
do not know how to comment the SQL thing you said.

A bundle install for "everything people commonly use in a web server"
you may find around the web. For that, you should search for bundle
projects. WampServer is something that comes to my mind (read a bit
about it here: <a href="http://www.wampserver.com/en/" title="http://www.wampserver.com/en/">http://www.wampserver.com/en/</a>). Please be aware that WAMP
is a broader and older acronym: <a href="https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/WAMP" title="https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/WAMP">https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/WAMP</a> , and
this word is possibly used to describe other projects too). I only use
linux since years ago (my last Win was XP, which I still use in eventual
Win needs, which I will do in virtual machines), so other people may
give you other pointers with the same idea.
