1. install homebrew

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/go/install)"

2. install dependencies

brew install pcre
brew install libtool

3. download apache 2.4.x version

http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi

4. extract it and then go into the directory

tar zxvf httpd-2.4.9.tar.bz2 && cd httpd-2.4.9

5. after that run the following to confgure:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache-2.4.9 LTFLAGS=--tag=cc

6. if you can’t complie because of llvm-gcc/gpp issue, install the GNU/gcc:

brew install gcc46

7. run the following command should work fine:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache-2.4.9 CC=/usr/local/Cellar/gcc46/4.6.4/bin/gcc-4.6 CPP=/usr/local/Cellar/gcc46/4.6.4/bin/cpp-4.6 LTFLAGS=--tag=CC

8. after the configuration, build it:

make

8. and install it:

sudo make install

9. Then, we can create symbolic links:

sudo ln -s /usr/local/apache-2.4.9 /usr/local/apache
sudo ln -s /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd /usr/sbin/httpd
sudo ln -s /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl /usr/sbin/apachectl

10. start apache server:

sudo apachectl start

or

sudo httpd -k start

11. check apache version:

sudo httpd -v

output:

Server version: Apache/2.4.9 (Unix)
Server built: Jun 11 2014 16:18:15

or

sudo apachectl status

12.  if you get ‘Not found ‘ error as below:

Not Found
The requested URL /server-status was not found on this server.

because the mod_status module is not configured, so add the following lines to httpd.conf:

<IfModule mod_status.c>
   # Allow server status reports generated by mod_status,
   # with the URL of http://servername/server-status
   # Change the ".example.com" to match your domain to enable.
   #
   <Location /server-status>
     SetHandler server-status
     Order deny,allow
     Allow from all
   </Location>
</IfModule>

Finally restart the apache server, it should work properly!
