not sure if this is a silly question...apples and oranges maybe..but...
For Windows I used to download either 32 bit binaries from ASF site or 64 bit binaries from Apache lounge site (for no particular reason). So - that was the way I new what version I have.
I've switched to ubuntu (for educational purposes) and got used to compiling from source...well...you know...make..make install etc.
1) So - when I compile apache server from source - what binaries do i get? 32? 64?
2) Are there any benefits from having 64 bit Apache binaries? any cons?
