     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 Apache HTTP Server is a powerful and flexible HTTP/1.1 compliant
  +  web server.  Originally designed as a replacement for the NCSA HTTP
  +  Server, it has grown to be the most popular web server on the
  +  Internet.  As a project of the Apache Software Foundation, the
  +  developers aim to collaboratively develop and maintain a robust,
  +  commercial-grade, standards-based server with freely available
  +  source code.

     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.
  +  Please see the file called INSTALL.
