How to Install an FTP Server on an Apache Web Server in Windows XP


Apache is a web host used to server PHP pages. Even though Apache is used mostly by Linux hosts, it is also compatible with Windows. Once the HTTP service is installed, Windows hosts have the option to install the FTP service on the server. Like the HTTP service, the Apache FTP is a free download available on the corporate website.

  • Download the latest release of Apache server from the official site. The link to the Apache FTP service is below:

  • Install the download file by double-clicking the file. Follow the prompts that asks for a location to place the installation files. This can be any local directory on the server.

  • Start the service in Windows as a service. If you don't set Apache as a service, it does not start when the server is reboot. This means the Apache server does not server FTP pages until it's manually started. Click the Windows \"Start\" button and select \"Run.\" Type \"cmd\" into the text box and press the \"Enter\" key.

  • Type \"bin\service install\" into the command prompt. This starts the FTP service in Windows so host files are served to web browsers.
