Apache HTTP Server 2.4.2 x86 and x64 Windows Installers


Apache HTTP Server 2.4.2 was released on April 17, 2012. This version is the second GA release of the new 2.4 branch and provides a number of security and bug fixes. The complete changelog for version 2.4.2 can be found here.

Below you will find the 32 bit and 64 bit Windows binaries compiled by me. The binaries were compiled with Visual C++ 2008 (VC9) against apr 1.4.6, apr-util 1.4.1, apr-iconv 1.2.1, expat 2.1.0, libxml2 2.7.8, lua 5.1.5, OpenSSL 1.0.1c, pcre 8.30 and zlib 1.2.7. IPv6 has also been enabled. The installers are digitally signed, so you can check the digital signatures to verify the integrity of the installers. You can also do the same using the provided file hashes.

And yes, I realize that I took almost a month to post these. Hopefully this won’t happen with the next version. Although I hope the next version isn’t released anytime soon. 😀

    How do you know if you need fast cgi. neither of the two install files have fast cgi.
    You just have the cgi folder.

    Can you add Fast CGI after install? I use PHP 5.4.13 and apache 2.4.2.

  21. Akshay

  23. Chandu

    I tried several ways to compile



    do you have any instructions for compiling ?

  24. Howard Ricketts

    Hi Anindya
    Thank you for a very useful blog. However it didn’t quite work for me – Apache was still not processing embedded PHP in HTML files. Finally I added the line:

    ScriptAlias /_php/ “c:/Program Files/PHP”

    and it started to work after recycling Apache.

  25. SreenivasReddy

    Thanks alot 🙂

    Hi Anindya,
    Thank you for sharing those tools.
    I have a question need your help.
    Recently, my company is going to upgrade our apache server to v2.4. Is there a guide to teach me how to build our own 2.4 msi version from binary file? Also, since our product will use for commercial purpose. Is there any license agreement we need to follow if we want to build our own version? Any site for reference?
    I really appreciate for your assistance.
