Is there an Apache binary that I can install on Mac without having to install MacPorts or MAMP or anything like that?

but is there a package I can download from apache? I don't like the pre-installed stuff, I'd like to be able to upgrade and not have to wait for apple, I need more control over it –  user893730 Feb 16 '12 at 19:33
@user893730 - No, but you could always build it from source. It's not that hard. –  Nifle Feb 16 '12 at 19:38
