There is a 32-bit Windows version of Apache: see

The Apache developers point out that it performs better under Unix, but it
should be stable under Windows, or at least Windows NT.  They don't make
any claims about Windows 95 or Windows 98.

(And parenthetically, Apache was not named for the Native American tribe,
although I'm sure the developers enjoy the pun.  It's name derives from
its origins as a set of fixes and enhancements to the NCSA httpd,
resulting in A Patchy Server.)
