     The easiest way to find all of the configuration flags for Apache 2.0
     is to run ./configure --help.

  +
  +  The Apache/Win32 binaries are primarily distributed as a Windows Installer 
  +  package (.msi), and may be available as a .zip file as well.  These packages 
  +  are named apache-2.0.xx-win32-x86.msi and apache-2.0.xx-win32-x86.zip.  
  +  Please choose the .msi package if at all possible.
  +
  +  If you have unpacked a source distribution (named httpd-2.0-xx.zip, without
  +  any -win32-x86 notation) you must compile the package yourself, see the links
  +  mentioned above.  Unless you intended to do this, please look again for the 
  +  binary package from http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/binaries/win32/ and
  +  install that .msi (or .zip package, if you must.)
  +
  +  If you have unpacked this binary distribution from the .zip package, you 
  +  _must_ edit the conf/httpd.conf file (with notepad or another text editor) 
  +  to reflect the correct ServerName, Domain, and directory paths.  Search for 
  +  the text "@@" to discover what you must edit.  To install and start the 
  +  service after you have corrected the httpd.conf file, use the command
  +
  +    bin\Apache -k install
  +    bin\Apache -k start
  +
  +  The .msi package configures the httpd.conf file, and installs and starts 
  +  the Apache2 service for you.  We strongly encourage you to use it.
  +
  +
  +  Postscript
  +  ----------
  +
  +  The Apache HTTP Server group cannot field user's installation questions.
  +  There are many valuable forums to help you get started.  Please refer your
  +  questions to the appropriate forum, such as the user supported newsgroups
  +  comp.infosystems.www.servers.unix and comp.infosystems.www.servers.ms-windows.
  +
     Thanks for using the Apache HTTP Server, version 2.0.
