Apache Server


The Apache Server is a web server application that's available for free. It was developed by a small group of webmasters in 1995. In 1999, these webmasters, who called themselves members of the Apache Group, formed the Apache Software Foundation to provide organizational, legal, and fiscal support to the Apache Server.

An interesting tidbit is that they chose the name 'Apache' to give respect to a Native American Indian tribe called Apache, who are famous for their exceptional proficiency in warfare planning and their boundless fortitude.

Apache is distributed under an "open source" license. It is the most widely used web server software. It runs on more than 65% of all web servers across the globe, which makes it more widely used than all other web servers combined. Fast, reliable, and secure, it can be easily customized to meet the requirements and needs of different environments, by using extensions and modules.

It is a very robust software application and can handle very large volumes of traffic on a single server. Since Apache can scale extremely well, it can serve many different kinds of content with minimal configuration.

The Apache Software Foundation has placed the software application on a solid footing for future growth and development. They have significantly increased the number of Open Source software projects, which fall under the aegis of this foundation.
