Better Understanding WAMP

I am attempting to go through and better understand WAMP in general (as I use it). First, I want to start with the A. That being said what layer in the OSI model would A be? My assumption is it is the session layer.

Then, is there a good place to learn about apache? I tried finding lectures online, but most of them are very pragmatic and have a specefic utility (how to use a specefic aspect). I would love articles or lectures on what Apache is from the ground up. And, how it operates.. I mean detailed information not broad terms like it connects users to their requests. I would like to hear about what packages the program has and what each package does etc..

Lastly, what language is Apache written in? Being that it is open source, can I download uncompiled code to review?

This forum is not the place to ask these question.

But a few minutes with Google will help you out, for example 2 seconds on google with a search of
`Download apache code`
will solve at least 2 of your questions.
