<h2><a name="binaries">Binary Releases</a></h2>

<p>Are available in the <a href="binaries/">binaries/</a> directory.
Every binary distribution contains an install script. See README
for details.</p>

<h2><a name="releases">Current Releases</a></h2>

<p>For details on current releases, please see the
<a href="">Apache HTTP
Server Download Page</a>.</p>

<p>Note; the versions of Apache are nearly identical to the
.tar.gz versions. However, they offer the source files in DOS/Windows
CR/LF text format, and include the Win32 build files.
These files <strong>do NOT contain binaries!</strong>
See the <a href="binaries/win32/">binaries/win32/</a>
directory for the Windows binary distributions.</p>

<h2><a name="archive">Older Releases</a></h2>

<p>Only current, recommended releases are available on
and the mirror sites. Older releases can be obtained from the <a
href="">archive site</a>.</p>

<h2><a name="sig">PGP Signatures</a></h2>

<p>All of the release distribution packages have been digitally signed
(using PGP or GPG) by the Apache Group members that constructed them.
There will be an accompanying <SAMP><EM>distribution</EM>.asc</SAMP> file
in the same directory as the distribution. The PGP keys can be found
at the MIT key repository and within this project's
<a href="">KEYS file</a>.</p>

<p>Always use the signature files to verify the authenticity
of the distribution, <i>e.g.</i>,</p>

% pgpk -a KEYS
% pgpv httpd-2.2.8.tar.gz.asc
% pgp -ka KEYS
% pgp httpd-2.2.8.tar.gz.asc
% gpg --import KEYS
% gpg --verify httpd-2.2.8.tar.gz.asc

<p>We offer MD5 hashes as an alternative to validate the integrity
of the downloaded files. A unix program called <code>md5</code> or
<code>md5sum</code> is included in many unix distributions. It is
also available as part of <a
Textutils</a>. Windows users can get binary md5 programs from <a
href="">here</a>, <a
href="">here</a>, or
<a href="">here</a>.</p>

<h2><a name="patches">Official Patches</a></h2>

<p>When we have patches to a minor bug or two, or features which we
haven't yet included in a new release, we will put them in the
<A HREF="patches/">patches</A>
subdirectory so people can get access to it before we roll another
complete release.</p>
