Just download Apache ( It comes with it (in ApacheX.X/bin)

...Guessing (from one of your other questions) that you're using a Mac... there appear to be instructions here:

(if not, I can probably help with a Windows installation, but in general, Google is your friend!)

A list of mirrors for the windows binaries can be found here.

There are some basic instructions here:

...basically, install it, and the ab.exe will be in the 'bin' subdirectory of the installation

On Ubuntu, I can install ab without installing all of Apache via the apache2-utils package. So:

sudo apt-get install apache2-utils

Download the Apache MSI-package ( -> Binaries for the version you want -> win32 directory -> httpd-...-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi), open this .msi file with 7-Zip, find ab.exe, select it, and copy it to wherever you want.

I've just done that with http://.../httpd/binaries/win32/httpd-2.2.25-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi, and it works for me.

For Windows Users there is no direct binary download.

One has do install the Apache server via the msi setup package, grab ab.exe from the Program Files/Apachge Group/bin folder and uninstall Apache again.

link to the msi package I used was once here:

but this is 404 as of today.

might help.
