Then we will explain the installation of an Apache server on a Windows 98 operating system. We should bear in mind that this version is a beta quality. This means that it does not provide the stability and security that the version of Unix, in fact there are numerous errors and inconsistencies, still is sufficient for testing in our computer.
Start with the installation:
The installation file for Windows is http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/binaries/win32/, once you have it on our desk, you can copy and execute it by double clicking on it.
Go into a standard setup application win32, so we will limit ourselves to choose the options that we show Setup is very simple because only routes calls from installation of files and can be left to the default.
If you do not choose a different directory Apache will be installed in:
C: \ Program Files \ Apache Group \ Apache
Once the installation is going to the directory where you have installed the server in the directory “\ conf \” is where the files are hosted server’s configuration. Within this directory will find the “httpd.conf” this is the configuration file that uses Apache to run.
For Apache to work properly we modify the above to do this we must open it using a text editor (such as WordPad), and save it as plain text file. After opening the file we will seek to make the line “ServerName.” The likelihood is that we find the following line:
# ServerName “default name server”
The need to replace with the following:
To launch the server must go to the Windows desktop, the server will be available at the following location of the start menu.
