Apache HTTP Server 2.2.18 was released on May 11, 2011 and here are the 32 and 64 bit installers. It’s been more than a week since the release of 2.2.18. I will try to post installers for the next version of Apache sooner. 😀
Anyway, as usual I have compiled them with Visual C++ 2008 (VC9). There have been no new versions of OpenSSL or zlib so it includes the same old OpenSSL 1.0.0d and zlib 1.2.5. The installers are digitally signed. Please make sure that the digital signatures are valid before you install.
Update: OpenSSL 1.0.0d was released on February 8 and contains an important security fix, the details of which are mentioned in this security advisory. So, if you previously installed Apache 2.2.17 with OpenSSL 1.0.0a using one of my installers, I recommend you use the mod_ssl-2.2.17-x86-openssl-1.0.0d.exe or mod_ssl-2.2.17-x64-openssl-1.0.0d.exe to upgrade your installation as soon as possible. They are self extracting archives and only contain the mod_ssl and OpenSSL files.
Apache HTTP Server 2.2.17 was released a few weeks ago (October 19, 2010). Changelog can be found here. I have had the x86 and x64 binaries compiled for a while now but keep forgetting to post them. Anyway, I am finally posting them today. As usual they have been compiled with Visual C++ 2008 (VC9) and contain latest version of OpenSSL (1.0.0a) and Zlib (1.2.5). I have noticed that for some reason the official binaries are still using OpenSSL 0.9.8o. Maybe because it’s at the top of the list in the OpenSSL download page. 😀
Since the installers are digitally signed, I am not posting any CRC32 or MD5 hashes this time.
Now you can also find the latest Apache binaries at http://apache.godfather.net.ru. So, in case you are unable to download from the mediafire links above, you can download from this mirror instead. Thanks to Alex for providing the mirror. 🙂
Apache HTTP Server 2.2.16 was released day before yesterday that is 25th July 2010. And here are the 32 and 64 bit Windows binaries that I compiled. They have been compiled with Visual C++ 2008 (VC9) and contain the latest versions of openssl (1.0.0a) and zlib (1.2.5).
As before, the installers and binaries are digitally signed. The signatures should appear valid if you are using Windows 7 or 2008 or your Windows is up to date.
Apache HTTP Server version 2.2.15 was released recently. It includes a number of important security and bug fixes. A changelog with further details can be found here. Thanks to Scott for notifying me about this new version. 😀
Below you will find the 32 bit and 64 bit windows installers. Like the previous releases, the binaries have been compiled with Visual C++ 2008 (VC9). The installers and binaries are digitally signed and the signatures should appear valid as long as your Windows is up to date.
The 32 bit binaries have been tested with Windows XP and the 64 bit binaries have been tested with Windows 7.
In my previous post I mentioned that I would create installers for any future versions of the Apache HTTP Server. And so, here I am providing 32 bit and 64 bit windows binaries for the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.14. The latest version as of this writing. It was released 6 days ago, but I only found out about it today. 😀
Anyway, as before, I have compiled these binaries using Vistual C++ 2008 (VC9) and I have provided “no-ssl” installers like Apache.org.
I have tested the 64 bit binaries with Windows 7 and 32 bit binaries with Windows XP.
If a new version of Apache is released and you see that I haven’t posted installers for it yet, please post a comment and let me know. 😀
Update: Installers for Apache HTTP Server 2.2.14 can be found here.
I haven’t posted anything in my blog for quite some time. It’s been more than half a year actually. 😮 Anyway, it’s about time for me to post something new. I will start by posting MSI installers for Apache HTTP Server 2.2.13.
Why did I decide to create these installers?
Well, now that Windows 7 has been released to manufacturing, I have started using Windows 7 64 bit. I was using 32 bit version of Windows 7 RC earlier and before that it was 32 bit Windows Vista. I had Apache, MySQL and PHP installed on my previous Windows installations, and now that I was using a 64 bit operating system, I wanted to install 64 bit versions of Apache, MySQL and PHP. MySQL.com has already been providing 64 bit binaries for Windows and I also found 64 bit binaries for PHP 5.3 here (although they aren’t meant for production use). But there is still no 64 bit version of Apache available from the official site. I did find unofficial 64 bit binaries at http://www.blackdot.be/?inc=apache/binaries, but in a zip file; without an installer.
So I decided to compile Apache myself and also create an installer for the compiled binaries. An installer makes it easier to install the software at any location of your choice, and also allows you to install only the components that you need.
It took me a while to set up the build environment on my new installation of Windows (Visual Studio 2008, Windows SDK 6.1, etc). While I was compiling Apache, I remembered that the official 32 bit binaries are compiled using VC6 and since I already had the build environment set up, I decided to compile 32 bit binaries too. These binaries that have been compiled with Visual C++ 2008 (VC9) should have “improvements in performance and stability” compared to the official Apache.org binaries.
