The download process of the Apache Web Server .zip setup file will successfully complete and the .zip file will be located in a folder titled {drive letter}:\Apache24.

NOTE: Please pay careful attention to the following.

Even if you are using Windows 8 or 8.1 (both of which are 64 bit operating systems) download Apache {version no } Win32. There are issues when using Apache {version no } Win64 and configuring Apache to connect to PHP.

Additionally, the php5apache2_4.dllrequired by Apache to connect to PHP is always available in the Apache {version no } Win32 download. This .dll is not available in the Apache {version no } Win64 .zip download.

Milestone 1 is reached. Apache web server has been downloaded and saved to hard disk locally so that Apache web server installation can proceed on the local computer.
