Download from here: Everything introduced official about how to install it could be found here: And how to configure it could be found here: When you are going to compile the source you may want to read this first: (Notice that if you are using a ubuntu or debian server like me, you should install libssl-dev first to enable the ssl module and PCRE for the rewrite mod,which may need to be pointed the PCRE lib path manually if you have installed but not discovered by the compile program.)
