Forgive my ignorance (I've tried and I can't!), but how would I go about verifying the integrity of a download from Apache Lounge with the PGP signature? Where is the Private Signature, or do I need to create my own?

Please advise.

Many thanks!

Nope, not your own.

On a download page here you have the Public PGP key: Steffen_Land.asc . This key is also on keyservers like https://keyserver2.pgp.com/ , search there for info op apachelounge.com

OK, thanks. Got that. But that is the Public Key. Where is the Private Signature?

The public key together with the signature of the downloaded file is enough to verify. It is how it works.
