    I am a complete beginner. Can anyone tell me, in very simple terms, how to get WordPress up and running on a free server such as Apache?

    Your best bet is to read through some of the manuals found here:

    I can't find anything that explains things in simple terms on that page.

    Sorry to be so demanding, I do appreciate someone responding, so I hope you're not too insulted. Thanks anyway.

    Are you asking how to set up a localhost server on your computer or are you wanting to set up WordPress on a free web hosting site? There is a world of difference.

    Also it's always good to start with the basics:

    I'd like to do what it says in that link: use Apache. I downloaded the latest version of Apache for windows binary. I don't know what to do next.

    That's not enough. It seems you want to run it at home. Download and install XAMPP. You can find instructions at the link provided earlier.

    If you are using Windows, the easiest way to install a server on your computer that I have found is Easy Web Server found here. It installs Apache, MySql, and sets up a localhost server in one step. It works well for me.

    Use Dream Host as your host, they have a one click install for WordPress.
