    www.apache.org, this is the home page of apache web server project. You'll find install guides and server sources there. For more docs and turorials google for keywords apache+server+install+guide But basically everything is simple, you may want to download sources, unpack, switch to extracted folder run 2 commands as regular user
    Code:
    ./configure
    make
    and
    Code:
    make install
    as root. And start web server
    Code:
    apachectl start
    also as root. Open http://127.0.0.1 in web browser and you'll see apache default page. Contents for this page are located in htdocs folder, somewhere in /usr/local/apache by default, if not defined explicitly while running ./configure script. To see list of available options for configuring apache installation run
    Code:
    ./configure --help
