Once you have uncompressed the httpd tarball, you go to the root of the 
source tree then execute following command , for example:

*./configure --prefix=/usr/local/httpd-2.4.41*

where /usr/local/httpd-2.4.41 is the root of the installation directory 
which will contain bin, doc, share, include,... directories.

if there's no error, you execute then


to build httpd, then

*sudo make install*

to install it /usr/local/httpd-2.4.41

Other configure options can be found via command :

*./configure --help*
