19.3.1. About the Standalone Apache HTTP Server

JBoss EAP 6 is tested and supported with the Apache HTTP server which is included with certified versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Apache HTTP server is also available for other operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows Server. However, since Apache HTTP server is a separate product produced by the Apache Foundation, it was previously difficult to be sure that the version of Apache HTTP server a customer used was compatible with JBoss EAP.
A standalone Apache HTTP server bundle is now available as a separate download with JBoss EAP 6. This simplifies installation and configuration in environments other than Red Hat Enterprise Linux, or on systems which already have a configured Apache HTTP server and want to use a separate instance for web applications. You can download this Apache HTTP server as a separate download in the Customer Service Portal, listed under the available JBoss EAP 6 downloads for your installation platform.
