  Index: README
                               Version 1.3 (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
    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
    Apache 2.0 uses autoconf for configuration and installation.  To use
    Apache's autoconf script, you will need libtool 1.3.3 or higher, and
    autoconf 2.13 or newer.
    To configure Apache 2.0 run the following commands.
    ./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.
