Chapter 18. Apache Configuration > Understanding Apache

18.1. Understanding Apache

The Apache distribution consists of the source for the core binary, httpd, the standard set of modules, and numerous additional header and configuration files. You can compile the server for your particular architecture and preferences using the config-make-make install routing common to building open source software. The latest version of gcc or another up-to-date ANSI C compiler is required to compile and build Apache.

However, you may not have to compile Apache from source. Most Linux and Mac OS X distributions have Apache already built-in. Furthermore, binaries are available for most popular platforms. Refer to www.apache.org for details.
